Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has named the attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, and Neymar as the best attacking line in the world of football.
These superstars were in terrific form during Barcelona’s league game against Villarreal this weekend, wherein Lionel Messi scored a brace, and Luis Suarez bagged a single in the Catalan Giants’ 4-1 victory.
This win ensured Barca kept their La Liga title hopes alive, as they now sit on top of the table with 84 points, but having played a game more than their arch-rivals Real Madrid, who share the same amount of points.
Following the MSN’s performance on Saturday, however, Barcelona boss Luis Enrique was quick to heap praises on his world-class forwards, and even dubbed them as the best attacking lineup in the entire world.
Lucho was quoted as saying (via Everything Barca): “Years ago there was just one crack in a team [in attack] and all we heard was that there was only room for one per side.
“Then Neymar came and there were doubts, people said there would be tension, that you could both have two cracks in the same team… and now look: there are three cracks. Let’s enjoy them. They might just be the best forward line in the world.”
Enrique saved some special praise for Neymar, who may have failed to get on the scoresheet on the night, but managed to impress one and all with his dribbling skills and overall performance.
“Neymar interprets football completely differently to other players, even to other Brazilians,” the Barcelona manager added.
“I barely have enough time to even see the majority of his dribbles. It’s a huge pleasure to watch him. Any football fan has to appreciate what Neymar does, which sometimes seems more like ballet than dribbling. It’s beautiful, it’s effective and it’s spectacular. Time will tell if he can mark an era.”
