Messi: I have no ego…

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has offered brief sentiment this week on his personal life and on if his current standing in the game has affected him.

The 25-year-old recently won a record fourth consecutive Ballon d’Or title and last calendar year broke a world record for goals scored.

Having also recently surpassed 300 career goals at Barca, the Argentine chatted briefly to Esquire magazine for their latest issue.

“I have no ego,” he answered, when asked of his personality away from the field.

“Or at least I feel like I do not. I still have to improve on everything.”

The Argentine also briefly commented on his personal life and how he views it.

“I will never write my memoirs because I want my private life to be just that, private.

“My newborn son? I am happy to know that he is there at home after practice and games.

“I am not obsessed for him to become a footballer. Whatever he will do in life, I will support him.”
