Barcelona lost this Tuesday to Bayern Munich in what was their first important test after the departure of Messi and Griezmann from the Catalan club. One of the voices authorized to speak about the image given by the team led by Koeman is Luis Suárez Miramontes, the only Spanish Ballon d’Or and commentator for the SER. The former footballer and former coach has gone through the microphones of ‘SER Deportivos’, with Francisco José Delgado and has commented on the sensations after the 0-3 Champions League.
Luis Suárez stressed that the feeling was “very bad” beyond the physical aspect where he gave a “poor impression”. “The thing that impressed me the most is the mental issue, the mentality with which they played the game, the fear of certain situations that they have not faced as a Champions League match,” he explained in SER. “The faces that they reflected when they appeared on television or during the break or during the game were of fearful and untrustworthy people. Naturally it was reflected on the pitch and even above it,” he continued.
“We have been wrong because they have waited in your rival area, when the opponent arrives with the ball under control and making walls without plays and leaving the players in the middle of the field in a numerical minority. They gave me an impression of a team without a soul and reluctantly. They have come out defeated on the pitch. The truth is that in a team like Barcelona I can’t do it. You can lose by three goals, by four or by five, but you have to bite, play, fight and not give that feeling of poverty and things that sometimes not even a small team, “he reflected on the defeat of the Blaugrana. The Spanish Ballon d’Or, formerly of Inter Milan, has also taken the opportunity to talk about the current situation of the Italian club and its match against Real Madrid in the Champions League.
