Dani Alves says Barcelona stars not good enough to help Lionel Messi. “He is doing it by himself, and he is only human.”
ormer Barcelona defender Dani Alves has launched a scathing attack on his former side, claiming the current team are letting down Lionel Messi.
La Blaugrana saw their slim La Liga title hopes ended in midweek, as they lost at home to Osasuna, and Real Madrid beat Villarreal.
Messi voiced his frustration after the game, claiming the team need to improve significantly if they are to avoid a Champions League defeat against Napoli next month.
“Messi is a born winner. You can see that in the way he plays for Barcelona,” as per an interview with Radio Catalunya, reported via Marca.
“He knows what it takes to win things, and aspire to do more. But he needs to be supported.”
“At Barcelona, Messi is the main man, but he needs players around him. The sensation at the moment is that he is doing it by himself, and he is only human.”
