Messi: Real Madrid was not the best in the Champions League

Lionel Messi is in front of the cameras of the Argentine television TyC, he spoke about the national team, Paris Saint-Germain, the Champions League…
“Champions League? I want to win it again and I’m sorry I didn’t make it this season. A better team does not always win. Without wanting to take away someone’s merits, but Real Madrid was not the best in the Champions League. I know very well what Real Madrid is. “I knew what could happen to us in the round of 16, it happened,” said Messi, adding:

“But if something unforeseen happens or a goal is scored, I knew what could happen to us, as it happened to City, Chelsea, Liverpool… This is not the first time, the Champions League is a competition situation, the best does not always win. There are specific moments and psychological moments when even the slightest mistake knocks you out. At Real, they managed those situations the best and that is why they are champions. “

Messi won the Golden Ball for 2021, which Robert Lewandowski said should have belonged to him.

“Everyone has the right to say what they want. I don’t agree with what he said, but I don’t care much. I said what I thought. I still think he deserved the Golden Ball a year earlier, but not last year. I told him that and let him understand how he wants it. Karim Benzema deserves it this year and I have not the slightest dilemma about it. He won the Champions League and the Primera, had a spectacular season and was a key man in every knockout phase match. I am convinced that he will win the Golden Ball “, said Messi.
