Barcelona failed this season after failing to win either the League or the Champions League, the two most important championships it had in the year.
The worst of all was the elimination of the international tournament, as they said goodbye with an 8-2 against Bayern Munich in which they showed the worst version of their defense.
On the present of Barcelona and that meeting, the historic Adolfo el ‘Tren’ Valencia, who played for the Bavarians in the past, put his position on the table.
“I have analyzed and studied Bayern, we all knew that Barcelona was there taking little steps, crawling, but we foresaw the elimination because those shortcomings were shown in the tournament, a team with a 4-point advantage and playing with bad teams. If it were for football, Xavi and Iniesta would be playing, but players like Busquets and Piqué are bad, that’s why there is a crisis there, « he said.
On the Spanish defender he was much more critical and made an analysis of what his last presentations with the culé shirt have been.
“Piqué is worried that Shakira will not see him play and suddenly he can separate, that is how you no longer have legs and there is no speed you have to leave, they are stealing, people who do not score, who do not take a ball to nobody, when they throw them long either, « he released.
The former soccer player has been critical of the Colombian National Team.
Ronald Koeman has already arrived in Barcelona as the team’s new coach and, for the ‘Train’, several footballers will have the door closed due to their low competitive level.
“The coach who arrived (Ronald Koeman) said that he liked the experience, that the team was mixed between youngsters and veterans, but whoever was not well did not get into it. There he is throwing it at them, but since he is a coach they respect, the message is clear, and Messi cannot expect the team to play his way, he was a great player, but in today’s football the speed it’s very important, as Leipzig showed against Atlético ”.
Along these lines, Piqué was not the only one who was criticized by the Train: “I as coach or president of Barça would take four or five boys from Leipzig, because they are young people of 21 or maximum 23 years old, later they would serve him, for at least Jordi Alba is no longer here to play, he is a guy who is injured all the time; Neither does that Frenchman play as a winger and when he goes on the attack he is the broken team, he knows how to attack, but he does not score ”.
Finally he spoke about Lionel Messi and he believes that the Argentine will not move from the culé institution because he feels good, despite the bad times.
« He does not leave because he is comfortable, he can be one of the maximum shareholders, we all know that the Argentine is very clever, the Argentine as long as he has a house a thousand years there they stay. Messi has already stayed in his Barcelona and does not move from there, now he bought a set in Miami Beach and when he has his vacation he goes there ”.
