Messi expressed his willingness to leave the game if he believes he can no longer provide his top performance or get pleasure from playing, regardless of his age.

“I am very self critical of myself, I know when I’m good, when I’m bad, when I play well and when I play badly. When I feel it’s time to take that step, I will take it without thinking about age,” Messi said.
