Messi plays down 'world's best' tag

Lionel Messi claims that he is not bothered by being dubbed "the best in the world" and says that wants to be remembered for the titles he has won.

Messi, 24, is favourite to win the 2011 FIFA Ballon d'Or and could become the second player in history to win a consecutive treble after Michel Platini, should he claim the accolade again.

The Argentine international has been compared to legends Pele and Diego Maradona, with many suggesting that he has already surpassed the achievements of the former greats. However, Messi himself is staying grounded over the debate.

"I am not interested in such comparisons and don't play to be the best in the world. I am playing for the good of the team and want to win trophies", he told France Football.

"When I hang up my boots, I want to be remembered as a good player, but I don't care whether I'm the best. I want to be remembered for the titles I won, both with the team and individual trophies."

Pele recently promised to send highlights of his career to Messi after the Barcelona star admitted he had never watched him play.

"I would love to see Pele in action, but he still hasn't sent me the DVD of his goals,'' Messi added. ''Everyone says he was an extraordinary player, but I can't form an opinion without having seen him play.''
