I am at the twilight of my Career, says Messi

Seven-time Balon d’Or winner and Argentina national team captain Lionel Messi has admitted that he has few years left in the game.

Messi’s current contract with French-club Paris Saint-Germain will expire next summer.

Ahead of the World Cup, the 35 year-old spoke with former national teammate Ezequiel Lavezzi for the media saying: “I love soccer, I love playing it and I enjoy it, the only thing I’ve done all my life is play soccer and I’m sure that I will stay connected when I stop, although I don’t know what. I don’t think I’ll play much longer,” he said.

“I don’t know, so many things happen… It was a dream I always had as a child, to be able to play in Argentine soccer. But today it depends on many things, I have my family, three children, I just had a very big change in my life that cost me and my whole family a lot. Today I got over it and we feel spectacular,” he added.
