The Barcelona superstar, who is known for his humble nature, was given the Argentine captaincy by Alejandro Sabella last year and he will lead the team in their crucial upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Uruguay and Chile.
“Wearing the captain’s armband has not changed me. I still do the same things with my team-mates,” Messi told Fox Sports Radio.
He added: “I lived through some sad times with the results. Now that we are winning, everything gets easier.
“I always really enjoy coming to play with Argentina. We are growing as a team, and we are still becoming stronger as a group.”
