Barca depends on Messi: Enrique

Football competition is completely depends of teamwork but Spanish giant and current La Liga champion Barcelona coach Enrique ultimately realised that his team mostly depends on the legendary forward Messi. Earlier he stated that if it is told that his team does not depend on Messi then it seems a joke to him. Messi is the current skipper of Argentina who was announced earlier about  his international retirement. But after his announcement, the fans forced him to withdraw his decision and he has come back again.

However, the defending La Liga champion Barcelona is passing somewhat bad time and their performance was not the standard level. They lost against Paris Saint Germain in middle of the last months at PSG’s ground by 4 – 0 where the world’s strongest attacking division was so dim. Later, they played couple of La Liga matches and though in both case they managed victory but they had to struggle a lot. In those two matches, Messi led the team to victory by his amazing goals.

In the first match against Leganes, Barca won by 2 – 1 goals where Messi scored both goals so far. Later in last Sunday against Atletico Madrid, Barca left their opponent’s ground with victory by 2 – 1 and here also Messi made the winning hit in a very crucial moment and his team won. Not in this very season but also since the beginning of the season, Messi started to show his previous form and by his magic, team was saved many times. He saved the midfield along with forward position many times before when team needed him.

However, it seems that in the ongoing season, Messi is unstoppable where he has already scored 35 goals in all competition including highest 20 goals in La Liga. So, getting someone like Messi in the team squad, why his team would not depend on him, Enrique asked. He stated that they depend on the great football player in the world nowadays and if they failed, it would be ridiculous. And also he added that they want to depend on him for more years.

Enrique also stated some more things that he regards Messi more than a forward. Messi used to play as a forward as well as look after the midfield also. It does not matter where he used to play. The most important matter is his form. Now, team barcelona is scheduled to play their next La Liga match against Sporting Gijon and in next they will play against Celta de Vigo. After four days, they will play against PSG which will be a do or die match for his team and most of them will look to their savior this time.
