Why Messi, Suarez and Neymar combo is phenomenal
There are insinuations in some quarters that Messi’s return to his usual splendid form and his blistering presence will relegate Neymar and Suarez to the background, and will make us lose the outstanding form they displayed during Messi’s absence.
But reacting to this report after taking a glimpse at it, Ancelotti believes that Messi’s presence will relegate Neymar and Suarez to the background but just in terms of media coverage.
Messi suffered a serious knee injury in a Liga game against Las Palmas on September 26 and there were speculations that the Catalan club would struggle without their main guy.
However, Neymar and Suarez have exceled in his absence, with both men scoring 11 times in the 11 games before they had played against AS Roma that they have started without the presence of Messi, although joined later.
Ancelotti said that in his opinion: “Messi’s return is not good news for Roma,” the Italian coach had exclaimed to Goal ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League match at Camp Nou.
“It’s true that Suarez and Neymar are doing very well but clearly Barca with Messi are something else. Messi brings goals, quality. He brings everything!
“He brings enthusiasm to his team-mates, who know that they have by their side a player capable of unlocking any game at any moment.
“It’s obviously better to play a Barca without him. Messi’s presence will only relegate Neymar and Suarez to the background in terms of media coverage, because on the field they do certainly not reside in the background.”
According to Ancelotti, Messi’s amazing on-field rapport with his fellow South Americans was the chief factor in last season’s historic treble victory for Barcelona.
Ancelotti was fired by Real Madrid in the summer after failing to win any sort of major trophies as Barcelona won the treble of UEFA Champions league, La Liga and the Copa Del Rey, helped by the brilliance of Messi, Suarez and Neymar, of course. Be that as it may, it doesn’t take a genius to understand how great the chemistry is between these three, and how, in the long run, it will take Barcelona to a level which will be a legacy that will be nigh impossible to achieve for any other team! Because frankly speaking, it will take a rare trio of Messi, Suarez and Neymar to reach that pinnacle!
