Barcelona star Messi: I'll play for Vilanova

Lionel Messi insists he's staying with Barcelona, despite the departure of coach Pep Guardiola.

Tito Vilanova has now replaced Guardiola and Messi is happy to play for him.

"I am staying at Barcelona and I hope that everything will be the same without Pep," he told Sport.

"Tito has a completely different personality, but I hope that he remains in charge for a long time. That would mean things are going well."
