23:42Lionel Messi’s press conference ended

Messi responds to Mundo Deportivo:
“I think with everything the club has given me and I’ve given them, it’s not good not to say goodbye. That’s why I hope it will come one day. Barcelona is my home, I love the club and its people. I don’t know if it’s at the new Camp Nou, or anywhere else, but I love his people and it has to happen.”

“Training doesn’t call me.”
As of today, this is not an option. Returning to Barcelona is a choice, it’s where I’m going to live. Barcelona have always helped me and I would like to collaborate in some way. Now I look no further, I’m a footballer and I want to keep playing

About Barcelona:
“Being in the best team in the world gives you a chance to win everything. And even more so if you’re in the best team in history like me. They are the best team in the world because they are different from everything else. The fact that I have been there for many years is what allowed me to win so many awards.”

About how special each Ballon d’Or is
“They are all special, but the latter two are more than that because they come from the national team, after winning the Copa America and the World Cup, so that’s for the Argentine. It’s one of the most special years of my career because of everything it means to me. It’s hard to say he’s the best, because I was lucky enough to play for a long time in the best team in the world and achieve different successes.”

I read about his experience at PSG:
Although the experience in Paris was not what I expected, I have friends there and my children became very fond of the city. It’s a great place, I was lucky enough to enjoy it

Messi: “I don’t know if I’m the best in history or not, I don’t even ask”
The fact that it was hinted at is indeed a privilege. Everyone has been playing football since they were young and it’s an honour to be talked about. I follow Barcelona and I will always do it because it is the club I love and I will love it for the rest of my life. I think they can fight for the Champions League, despite what happened against Real Madrid. He’s one of the favourites, but he has to walk little by little, grow in the competition.”

23:28Messi’s press conference begins

Aitana was so excited.
The Blaugrana footballer admitted that she is living a dream and that she has not slept for days.

23:11Let’s go with some of the top feedback!!

23:11Aitana’s press conference concludes

Aitana Architectural Medicine:
“We’re a very good team, very complete and very big. I’m very proud of everything I’ve achieved.”

On his nerves:
“I feel more comfortable playing football than talking, because I’m not used to such big stages. It was a day full of tremendous emotions.”

Aitana on Messi:
“I’m proud that we grew up in Barcelona, we’re a world-class club. A club that cares about talent and values, that’s why we’re unique in the world.”

Messi speaks
I think Mbappe and Haaland will share the awards in the coming years, because they are very good.”

The importance of the Companions
They are the driving force of our daily lives, and the key to success. It was a long road and a great sacrifice, but it was worth it, thanks to them and all that they achieved.

When winning more Ballon d’Or:
You never know, but knowing how I, very demanding, I will continue to fight for everything. Without forgetting that individual awards come after collective awards. It’s a difficult road, especially when you almost can’t afford to fail, but in the last few years it’s improved a lot across the board. Especially mentally. My mission is to enjoy this, share it with my loved ones and with all those who approved me.

Aitana: “I never dreamed of this”
“It wasn’t an easy year for Spanish football, we had to fight against a lot of things. I’m glad we’re leaving a legacy. Being here today was unimaginable to me, I never dreamed of. Together with Alexia, we are proud to be role models for girls and boys from future generations. My teammates and I demand ourselves very much and we will continue to fight for everything.”

22:58Aitana appears at a press conference:

Messi’s legend became bigger
The Argentine star won his eighth Ballon d’Or, as his brutal role in the World Cup in Qatar was recognized.
This is how we explain it in Mundo Deportivo

The ceremony is over
We will now look at all the winners and the reactions of the football world, including the winners themselves

On Mbappe and Haaland:
“They’re competitive monsters. I know Kylian very well and he’s very competitive, just look at Erling how he celebrates goals. I’m sure they’ll have a nice fight. They deserved it too.”

Messi’s family will take the stage, to take a historical photo

Messi: “As long as I can keep playing I will keep playing, that’s what I love. I can’t say retirement date, I’m just thinking about having fun.”

Ballon d’Or winners raised at La Masia
Undoubtedly, today Catalans are lucky for the winners.
So the newspaper director explains it,

Messi continues:
“I was lucky enough to be at the best club in the world and in a strong team to be able to win everything. Also, I never gave up, even in bad times, when I didn’t have it. Luckily everything has changed.”

22:40The impeccable speech of the 8-time Ballon d’Or winner

22:39This was the Ballon d’Or podium.

Messi speaks:
“I would like to thank all my colleagues for this award. Especially those who are in the national team. I would also like to congratulate Haaland and Killian, who had a great year. I see a lot of young people here, and I’m sure I’ll soon have to try this from another side. I want to mention in particular the fact that many people wanted Argentina to be world champion so that I could achieve my dream. I would like to thank my family, especially for being there in the worst moments. Without you this would have been impossible. Finally, I would like to mention Diego, whose birthday falls today. I don’t think there’s a better tribute to him, wherever he is.”

“I’m very nervous, being here is a dream. In the most important awards in football. We’re doing a great job and the results in the last few years speak to the mentality of the team. In Spain we have a very great talent, and that says a lot that we got the Ballon d’Or at home for three years. We are a country that lives in football a lot.”

Aitana: “I am very proud of what we achieve”
“It’s been a great year on a sporting level. Football is a team sport and everything I have achieved will not make sense without my teammates. I dedicate this to all the clubs I’ve played for. Thank you Laporta, for betting on us when no one trusted her. And special thanks to my family and my father. Finally, congratulations to the rest of the winners. Together we must fight for a more equal world.”
