FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, but the Argentine insists he still needs to improve one aspect of his game.
The 31-year-old holds the records for most LaLiga goals and assists, while he is the all-time leading scorer for Barca and Argentina.
Messi has won a total of 33 trophies with the Catalan giants and numerous individual honours, but the forward says he still needs to work on taking penalties.
“I would like to be more effective from the penalty spot.,” Messi was quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.
“But it’s difficult to work on penalties. It’s not the same taking them in training as it is in a game. You can have an idea in your head or something you have worked on, but it’s more difficult than it seems.
“The goalkeeper has a lot to do with it, too. If they guess right, they save it. But it’s obvious that I’d like to get better at taking penalties.”
