Barcelona - Barcelona star Lionel Messi has lashed out at a club vice president who said the Argentine didn't deserve an improvement on his contract.

Javier Faus, the vice president in charge of Barcelona's finances, said two weeks ago he didn't see a reason to extend Messi's contract again after the club had already done so last year until 2018.

Messi has responded by telling RAC1 radio that he hasn't asked for another extension, saying "Mr. Faus is a person that doesn't know anything about football and wants to run Barcelona like a business, which it isn't."

Messi adds "Barcelona is the best team in the world and deserves to be represented by the best executives."

Messi is in Argentina recovering from a hamstring injury.
