FC Barcelona and Argentina forward Lionel Messi who played his 500th career game with the Catalans says 2015 has been a spectacular year for him.
With FC Barcelona’s 4–0 victory over Real Betis at Camp Nou, the team ended 2015 in the best way possible, with three points and top spot in La Liga with 38 points
The year 2015 has been a spectacular year for the club with five titles, a feat that Messi says will be difficult to repeat:
“It is difficult to improve on what we have done this season but we want to do it. We have a great team with the ability to try to improve on 2015.
“It was a spectacular year that we wanted to finish with a win. I don’t know anything about the Ballon d’Or.” Messi who is widely expected to win the Ballon d’Or in January told the Barcelona official website.
The Argentine skipper, who scored one of the goals and also played his 500th match in an FC Barcelona shirt, highlighted the difficulties against Betis:
“It was a strange game, complicated. We found it tough to pick up the pace of the game, which is always hard after a few days of vacation. But we did the most important thing, which was to win tonight.” Messi said.
