"He follows everything, asks questions, and gives me notes when things are not going so well. Yes, yes, I already received a couple of criticisms," he added.

Messi has scored 19 goals and 10 assists in the Spanish League this campaign and he is in contention for major awards at the end of the season.

He will also be hoping to guide Barcelona to another La Liga glory as they currently top the table with 49 points from 21 matches.
