Luis Suarez, not the current Barcelona striker but the 1960 Balon d’Or winner, absolutely blasted this current Blaugrana side.
He stated that his former club does not the right players to win anything this season.
“It has no heart, it has no aggressiveness,” he continued. “It has nothing, other than loose qualities from some great player who has them inside him,” he went on. “And I have to say it because I feel it a lot, a lot, a lot … This team won’t win anything this year. It’s a feeling I have, a lot…,” Suarez confessed.
“If it continues like this … or doesn’t change radically, or if there is nothing that can be done … You tell me. You are watching it. And it is not the only game,” he added.
These comments were passed after Barca’s narrow 2-1 victory over Getafe. Antoine Griezmann and Sergi Roberto helped the side gain all three points and move closer to their rivals, Real Madrid.
Griezmann missed a valuable chance late into the game which could have restored Barcelona’s two-goal cushion. The game was otherwise a reflection of Barca’s transitional phase under Quique Setien. They have already dropped out of the Copa del Rey and are still in the process of returning to their best self.
