Nearly 16 years on from his arrival in Barcelona, Messi also reflected on the challenge of adjusting to life in a new country as a teenager."It was a complicated time," he recalled. "On the one hand it was nice, because to come and play FIFA UT Coins in Barcelona was something spectacular."On the other hand it was difficult, because I left everything behind."I left my friends, part of my family, my childhood. Arriving in a country where I had nothing, starting practically from zero, was very difficult."
