Messi knows that defeating Chelsea will make him world’s best footie playerApril 28th, 2009 - 3:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr.28 (ANI): Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi knows he can only be officially crowned as the best player on the planet if they beat Chelsea.
The Argie idol, 21, is desperate to win the Champions League and finally claim the title many in Barcelona believe is rightfully his - the FIFA World Player award, reports The Sun.
Messi missed out on the 2006 final, due to a thigh injury, when Barca beat Arsenal 2-1 to win their second European Cup.
“I have unfinished business in the Champions League. I want to win this and the time has now come. The individual awards always arrive thanks to collective work. For that reason if the team win the Champions League, the World Player award would be a lot closer for me,” Messi was quoted, as saying. (ANI)
