The Argentine has been flat as Barca have lost consecutive El Clasicos and in the Champions League to AC Milan.
"We are saddened by the recent defeats, but we'll leave this situation," said Messi. "I'm not sad, I do not know who said that.
"We have to give a little more. We know well what were the problems of these defeats, but we will keep them in the locker room."
