FC Barcelona forward Lionel Messi says he's evolved to be 'less selfish'

Thibaut Courtois shows the courage to front up after messing up

Thibaut Courtois shows the courage to front up after messing up

"I didn't expect a shot", the Chelsea goalkeeper admitted after the final whistle, looking up at the stands that towered over him.

His current contract at Chelsea will expire in the year 2019, and there have been speculations that he could be on his way to Real Madrid next season.

"Good question, I don't know", the 27-year-old initially says before continuing, "Maybe Thibaut (Courtois) because he talks too much!"

The return match from the first seconds did not go according to the script of "Chelsea" already on the second minute the goalkeeper "the Aristocrats" Thibaut Courtois managed to skip between his legs after hitting the ball Lionel Messi, who threatened the opposition goal from nearly zero angle. In a lot of clubs that might give you an average season in the bag but it seems unlikely the Italian will keep his job if, as expected right now, they miss out on Champions League football for next season.

As the London Evening Standard report, both Real Madrid and PSG have been sniffing around Courtois.

Marcos Alonso says Chelsea have no time to dwell on their Champions League exit and must refocus on domestic duties and securing qualification for the competition next season.

The Blues go to Leicester in Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final and their next Premier League fixture is on April 1 against top-four rivals Tottenham.

"We were a little bit unlucky with the first two goals, we hit the post three times and had so many chances in both games".

A European champion with AC Milan in 2003, the legendary retired Ukranian frontman was mesmerised by Messi's performance against Chelsea in a 3-0 win at Camp Nou - which saw him net twice. We have to improve and, when you lose, you have to train and get better.

Former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko claimed that with Lionel Messi at his best, nobody will stop Barcelona from winning the UEFA Champions League.
