Arsène Wenger, a legendary former Arsenal coach, commented on FC Barcelona's draw against Slavia Prague and gave his diagnosis for the culé team
Arsène Wenger, mythical ex trainer of the Arsenal during a lot of seasons, always characterised for looking for an attractive football and differential in the Premier League. After the tie of the FC Barcelona against the Slavia Prague in the Camp Nou, the French spoke about the Barcelona and diagnosed a worrisome problem of game although the results do not finish to be bad.
The ex trainer Frenchman did special upsetting in that, in spite of that the Barcelona "are like leaders of the League and like leaders of his group in the League of Champions", show a game "without dynamism, slow and laxo". Something that comes repeating during the parties of the present season, in which maybe the Barça have lost his identity.
Wenger believes, besides, that the problem does not generate only when the balloon has it the Barça, but also when it loses it. "It plays like a team in crisis because the game is too slow, without dynamism and very individualista in the final metres. Besides, every time that loses the ball, can fit a goal in contrataque because they do not achieve to reduce the space to the opponent", said.
Besides, the French technician compared to the Barça of before, with a big collective game, to the of now, much more individualista. "The Barça is an interesting case because has history of a collective game brilliant and in the peak of all was Leo Messi that marked the differences. Today it seems that it plays waiting for Messi. Before, the music was beautiful of a fantastic team expecting the apparition of Messi", manifested.
Finally, Wenger ensured that the Barça has lost the charisma and that maybe the two traced back suffered in Champions League during the last seasons have affected mentally to the group. "Today, they have lost the charisma and it is necessary to ask what has affected them the two last failures in the League of Champions of the last years. From out, it seems that they have lost the charisma", sentenced.
Recover the style of the Barça
The diagnostic of Wenger is clear and, seeing to the team, is logical to think that they have lost some attributes that converted to the Barça in a lethal team and of football very attractive. Players like Frenkie of Jong or Arthur Melo are called to lead a new reconversion to recover what has gone losing in the last seasons.
