Messi: I'm Not Selfish Anymore

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, who has the most assists in LaLiga history, has explained why he has become less 'selfish' in recent years.

The Argentine broke the record for most assists (148) in the Spanish top flight last month to go along with his all-time record scorer record.

Messi has already provided 16 assists in all competitions this season as the Catalan giants continue to battle on all three fonts.

"Before, I tried to steal the ball and make my play," Messi told La Cornisa, according AS.

"Now, I try to make the team play more, pass the ball more and not be so defining or selfish.

"I try to move the team from another position. I run the same as I always did, but in a different way."

What Messi is saying, is that he is no longer a striker, since strikers are selfish. If you look at the number of goals he used to score, you can tell. Now he is both scoring assisting and making the entire team play. He is now a leader. He even says he does not care about individual awards anymore, he now wants to win something with the team. This is all inline with what Messi is doing on the field. If you have not watched him you will not see this.
