And Xavi believes Barcelona have not done enough to fulfil their own part of the bargain with Messi as he told TV3:

"You have to make sure that Leo is happy, because with a happy and content Leo you have a better chance to win titles.
"Many times he has given me the impression that Leo has not been happy on the field, that he has been sad and it makes me sad as a Cule (Barcelona supporter) that we have not taken advantage of him enough in recent years.
"We had the best footballer in the world and in history and we haven't taken advantage of him enough."
