Messi: One day I want to play in Argentina

Lionel Messi told reporters yesterday that one day he would like to play for a club back in his native Argentina. “I do not plan to move team. People treat me very well in Spain and I have no problem with the [Barcelona] directors. But one day I want to play in Argentina and realise a childhood dream.”

Messi left Argentina aged 11 for Barcelona but has always identified strongly with his homeland. He rejected overtures from the Spanish FA to play for their youth teams and is still a fan of the club he played for as a tot – Newell’s Old Boys of Rosario.
