Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi, has said he does not like to be substituted and would rather start the game from the bench.
In the past, Messi has refused to be taken out of a game, even when his team is winning by a big margin.
“I don’t like to be replaced. I prefer to come from the bench and play less than to be taken out.

“I prefer to come in and enjoy it than to leave and miss out on the best,” Messi told TyC SportsHits : 267
