BARCELONA, Spain — Lionel Messi says both he and his Barcelona teammates have learned from mistakes that left them without a major title for the first time in six seasons last year.
Messi admitted Thursday that "last year wasn't a good year for me. I had many problems on and off the pitch. And I want to reverse that situation."
Messi has scored 37 goals in 33 games this season, including 14 to fuel an 11-game winning streak since Barcelona lost at Real Sociedad early January.
The forward said "the change in the team's attitude is very noticeable. We are in a very good dynamic now."
Barcelona is within one point of Spanish league leader Real Madrid and visits Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League round-of-16 tie next week.
