I see myself as the best footballer in the world. If you don't believe you are the best, then you will never achieve all that you are capable of.
I'm not going to change the world. You're not going to change the world. But we can help - we can all help.
To be honest, there are no problems between me and Messi. People have their own opinions about who they think is the better player. It is what it is, but there is no rivalry beyond games and what happens on the pitch.
