PSG ace Leo Messi: I had everything in Barcelona; Benzema...?

PSG ace Leo Messi has again declared he never wanted to leave Barcelona.

Messi has just completed his first season in Paris, finishing as a Ligue 1 winner.

He said, "What happened, happened and it was hard. It was a difficult change.

"I had everything in Barcelona. I moved when I was very young. What's more, I lived more in Barcelona than in Argentina. The truth is that I didn't plan to ever leave."

Messi also had a word for Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.

"There are no doubts about the Ballon d'Or, it's very clear that Benzema had a spectacular year and ended up winning the Champions League, being fundamental from the last 16 onwards in every game. I think there are no doubts this year."
