Messi: I don't know why Thiago would want to leave Barcelona

Lionel Messi admits he doesn't understand Thiago Alcantara's decision to leave Barcelona.

The midfielder quit Barca for Bayern Munich last week.

Messi said: "Thiago decided to leave because he thinks he'll play more there. It's his decision, whether or not we understand it.

"Bayern is a great team and won the Champions League convincingly. With Guardiola they'll be even stronger.

Bayern beat us by too many goals for what we are as a team. It means we're hungrier this year."
