Why MSN is the best trident of Barcelona ever
It is the way MSN compliment each other sincerely that has perhaps contributed most to the phenomenal success of the last year and a half.
In an extensive interview at this weekend Suarez spoke about how his more difficult early matches out on the right with Messi playing as the false nine were not maximizing the potential of either player.
Messi deserves complete credit for giving up that central berth that allowed Suarez to buffer up against rival central defenders and creating space for Messi and Neymar to arrive in off the right and left touchlines and then play off of him.
The telepathic understanding has also been another stand-out feature.
Suarez was not the meant to be recipient of Messi’s penalty assist on Sunday but he definitely was wide-awake to exactly what the Argentine was intending to do and when the weight of the pace and the swiftness and speed and trajectory of his run right into the area meant the ball ended up falling to him and not to Neymar he duly opened his body and then drilled his shot past Sergio Alvarez right in the Celta goal.
Neymar who had already watched Suarez nick one goal from him remarked afterwards: ‘Leo and myself had practiced but Luis was closer and he scored it. Our friendship is the most important thing. It doesn’t matter who scores the goals just that we win the games.’
Speaking to Carragher at the weekend Suarez too said: ‘It’s a natural reaction. It’s not anything forced. People don’t see it but inside the dressing room we laugh and joke a lot so it’s not just for the cameras it’s the way things are off the pitch too.’
These three are so synchronized Barca attacks have now started looking like Red Arrows’ flyovers. And they have reminded supporters in a dedicated manner that even better than watching a great player is actually watching great players play together.
