“I’ve done this all of my life; I love playing ball. I enjoy the training, and the day to day, the games. Yeah, there’s a bit of fear that it’s all ending. It’s always there. It was a difficult step leaving Europe to come here [to Miami],” Messi said in an interview with ESPN Argentina on Wednesday.

“The fact we won the World Cup helped, it helped a lot, to see things in another way. But I try not to think about it. I try to enjoy it. I do that more now because I’m aware that there’s not a lot of time left.

“So, I have a good time with the club, being lucky having good teammates and friends at my side. I enjoy my time with the national team, where I also have good friends, too, and a lot.

“I enjoy those small details that I know I’ll miss when I stop playing.”
