Messi had to watch from the stands as his team-mates won their second European Cup two years ago in Paris due to injury but, after struggling again at times this season, he is back to full fitness the 20-year-old wants his side to repeat their Paris heroics with him on the pitch.
"It´s true I´ve had a bad time of it in the Champions League," he told Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo. "It was awful for me not being able to play a single minute in the final in Paris. For that reason I now want to win the Champions League with me playing in all the games."
