German international Muller has played a vital role in Bayern Munich's historic conquest of the treble this season, prompting some to believe that the attacking midfielder would rival Messi in the race for the next edition of the Ballon d'Or.
However, Muller told Bild that such comparisons were of no interest to him.
"That I scored as many Champions League goals as him does not make me as good as Messi, I'm just pleased to see that having the qualities I possess is enough to be successful in the Champions League," he stated.
"I am not one to crave the attention, though. I just want to win titles with the team."
With Messi's former head coach Pep Guardiola set to succeed Jupp Heynckes at the helm of the Bavarian side this summer, Muller fired a warning to Bayern's rivals that the team would look to dominate the European continent for the next few years.
"We have been very successful in Germany, too. And we will be the team to beat both in Europe and domestically. That will be a nice challenge," he said.
"The core of this team can still go on for three to four years and we want to make the most of it."
