Messi speaks on new role

Barcelona star, Lionel Messi has explained his new role at the club.

Messi revealed that he has become less selfish and has evolved into more of a team player.

The 30-year-old disclosed that he does not play individual football like before.

According to Messi, he tries to move the team from one position to another on the pitch.

“Before, I used to try to steal the ball and make something happen on my own — or at least try to do something on my own,” Messi told America TV.

“Now, I try to make the team play more. I pass the ball more and I try not to be so selfish, if you will. I try to move the team from one position to another. I still run as much as ever, just in a different way.”

Meanwhile, Messi is effectively the second forward in a 4-4-2 formation under manager, Ernesto Valverde.

The forward increasingly finds himself in a deeper position, often dropping into his own half to get on the ball in central positions and dictate play.
