Lionel Messi is determined to bring silverware back to Barcelona this season.

Messi believes the early signs from pre-season training are that Tito Vilanova can build on what his predecessor Pep Guardiola achieved at the Nou Camp.

"What Tito Vilanova has done in these two days (of pre-season training) is exactly what Pep did in his four years," the 25-year-old told Marca.

"The same hard-working people remain, everything is equal and we start in the same way.

"I am not looking to beat my level of goals. This isn't my objective. My objective is to win titles and this for us is fundamental.

"Every year is difficult. Real Madrid won the league last year and this season will be very difficult. Our objective is to fight until the end. This year we will do the same.

"I try to improve every year. I try to continue my level and continue growing with the team and the players we have.

"I always try to take advantage of the moment and I hope that this year will be the same and I won't have to lose any game."
