Despite all the praise surrounding the Argentine, Lionel Messi does not believe that he is 'perfect' just yet.
The Barcelona forward explained that he felt like there remain many ares of his games which still require substantial work, despite the fact that he has performed his miracles yet again this season. Messi has scored 15 goals in just 17 La Liga games with Barcelona currently top of the table, well ahead of archrivals Real Madrid.
"I want to be perfect and yet there are some parts of game I have to improve to reach the maximum level," Messi said in an interview with Serbian newspaper Blic. "Which part? Penalties, I have to practice them more."
Messi also spoke a little about his future, saying that presently he does not see himself becoming a manager, although he left the door open.
"I will probably not be a coach after I retire, but there is enough time, I can still change my mind," he added.
The 30-year-old added that he tried to lead a completely normal life, but that his hordes of fans on the streets complicated things.
“I'm a person like everyone else. I lead a completely normal life with my family. Okay, I wish sometimes that I'm not so familiar and that I can walk freely."
