'Messi has to look after himself and no-one else' – Mingueza says Barcelona can have no complaints about contract call

Oscar Mingueza will not be trying to influence Lionel Messi’s contract call at Barcelona in any way, with the Blaugrana defender pointing out that his iconic team-mate has to “look after himself and no-one else”.

As things stand, the six-time Ballon d’Or is due to hit free agency when his current deal expires at the end of the season.

Fresh terms have been mooted, along with a move elsewhere, and Mingueza says the all-time great has earned the right to dictate his own future after all that he has achieved in Catalunya.
