Leo Messi spoke about the current situation of FC Barcelona at a sponsored event on Thursday, highlighting his happiness of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League among other topics.

The Argentine says he is “at the best team in the world” that “does not depend on any single player” before also mentioning the importance of winning at Anoeta on Sunday. Here is the pick of what he said:

Reaching the knockout stage

"I am very happy with the game we played at Celtic Park, and for qualifying (to the knockout stages),which was what we were after."

Real Sociedad on Sunday

“Getting a result at Anoeta will require a great effort from the team due to their form and because we have found it difficult there over the years.”

Messi also added that “we need to win due to the last result” which was a goalless draw against Málaga.

Happy to be with the best

“I am at the best team in the world and we do not depend on any single player.”

“It is clear that I always like to win, but there are more important things than a win or a loss, and with time I have become aware of that.”
