The Argentine Forward has indicated he does not need any rest and hopes to play in every single match for Barcelona. Messi believes he feels better and performs better if he plays in every match. He also said his body functions better if he does not take any rest at all.
The prolific striker has already played in 38 matches for Blaugrana so far this season, netting 49 goals in the proccess, and he has no intentions of slowing down this year.
"For years now I’ve been used to playing a lot of matches. My body feels better if it doesn’t rest," the prolific attacker told Barca TV.
"The most important thing is to win matches. If I can help with goals, then that’s always better."
Messi went on to discuss Barcelona's results this season and has said the team will eventually get the credit which he feels they deserve.
"The dynamic of competitive football doesn’t allow us to enjoy what this team is achieving, but maybe in the future it will be given the credit it deserves."
Barcelona are currently preparing for the return leg of the Copa Del Rey against Real Madrid which will be played at Nou Camp on Tuesday night. The first leg finished in a 1-1 draw.
