Messi: Victory over Betis was more important
After the match with Betis, Messi did not gave the impression that he just broke the record which is 40 years old.
“Yes, it’s nice to break when you broke a record. I know that it means a lot, but still a more important to me is that we won against Betis and that we maintain an advantage over the other teams,” said Messi, who then added:
“We outlined a target at the beginning of the season, and that is to take the Champions League and the Spanish league. This is our idea, and so far we’re doing perfectly,” said Messi.
“Andres is responsible for almost every win of this team. I would be delighted if he won the Golden Ball. That actually would be the reward for the whole team,” .
