BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP):

Lionel Messi, who has always planned to end his career at Barcelona, is hinting that might not happen.

In an interview published yesterday by sports newspaper Ole, the 27-year-old Argentine says: "While I always said that I would like to stay there (Barcelona) forever, sometimes not everything happens the way you want."

Messi indicated that the club's current situation - with losses on the field and a new coach in Luis Enrique - could change things.

He said: "Barcelona is a very big club. And when you lose two games in a row, problems begin to crop up and critics come out from all sides ... crazy stuff, the same as with the (Argentine) national team."

Barcelona failed to pick up any silverware last season.
