Reports: Enrique Blames Messi & Neymar For La Liga Failure

Published

on

Luis Enrique’s stint at FC Barcelona ended on the weekend, and he has now apparently blamed Lionel Messi and Neymar for the Blaugrana’s failure to win the La Liga title this season.

The Spaniard’s three-year spell in the Barcelona dugout ended with a 3-1 Copa del Rey final win over Alaves.

He leaves the club with a better win percentage than Pep Guardiola, and with nine trophies too.

However, despite lifting the club’s 29th Copa del Rey title, the 2016/17 campaign will hardly be seen as a success, with Barca’s bitter rivals Real Madrid lifting the La Liga title and Juventus knocking the Blaugrana out of the UEFA Champions League at the quarter-final stage.

According to Diario Gol, Enrique blames two of his biggest superstars for the Catalan giants’ failure to win La Liga in his final season at the Camp Nou.

It has been claimed that Messi and Neymar feel that Enrique should have left the club earlier, with some players apparently even asking for his sacking in January 2015 after a defeat to Real Sociedad.

The 47-year-old ex-coach reportedly believes Barcelona could have lifted the league title this season if he had more backing from the players, particularly Messi and Neymar.

Meanwhile, the club has confirmed former player Ernesto Valverde as their new coach, with the former Athletic Bilbao coach set to be unveiled on Thursday.

I was very nervous, but when Ronaldo scored his goal I knew we were going to win. Five minutes from the final whistle I entered the field, without really getting heated, and I did not touch the ball, but it was one of the best moments of my career.

The second encounter that marked him was the 3-3 against Liverpool in the final of the Champions League in 2005. His club lost when he had three goals in advance, but Kaká was able to draw the positive side of defeat: « That day I realized that in football you can not consider a match as being won in advance. I still do not know how Liverpool could go up and tie in six minutes.

Kaká also mentioned his defeat with Brazil against France at the 2006 World Cup: « I learned a lot of defeats. This Brazilian team was incredible: Cafú, Lucio, Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos … but Zidane was the best that day and on a slip of the road we had to forget the title of world champion.

« Liverpool-Liverpool 2007 was also an incredible match. We arrived with so much motivation, so that the events of 2005 can not be repeated again, we then allowed ourselves no respite. we were winning 2-0 and Kuyt scored. But this time we did not lose. It was wonderful, the best year of my career, « said Kaká.

Finally, the Brazilian recalled the final of the 2007 World Club against Boca: « Although it seems easy, a final of World Club is always complicated. I played it with a shirt that said ‘I belong to Jesus’ and it went around the world. We celebrated the victory like kids and I was named Player of the Match.
