See the events from the distance often serves to have a greater perspective, and this is what seems to be happening in the Barça. Some voices authorised, as Carles Puyol, Pep Guardiola or Xavi Hernández have commented in some occasion the Barcelona actuality and in his assessments there have been praises but also critical.

Precisely, a reproach of the midfield player has been answered by Josep Maria Bartomeu in an interview for the 'The New York Times', and is that the leader does not think the same that the one of Terrassa regarding the quarry, since the player affirmed that, in his opinion, his ex team had slept "".

"In general, the Barça has slept . It thought that the ship went only. It is necessary to improve the quarry and his model of game. The young footballer has to suck this form to play so that when it arrive to the first team have all the very learnt concepts", explained Xavi does not do a lot.

"It is very difficult to be acting in a team that has to Xavi, Messi or Iniesta"

But the reflection of the egarense does not share it Bartomeu: "No, the problem are Xavi, Iniesta, and Leo Messi, and these players. It is very difficult to be footballer and have in front of you to Leo Messi or Neymar, or Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Hammered... It is very difficult to be there", retorted, referring to be acting in a team plagado of stars.

"Xavi was in the first team during 15 years. These 15 years mean that 15 boys that played in his position had to abandon the club. Iniesta, now, think that are 16 or 17 years. And Leo Messi? Who goes to be the new Messi? Probably, other players will be cracks, but have to leave our club because it is impossible", argued.

In his speech, Bartomeu explained that the problem is the quality of the generation of footballers that grew in the FC Barcelona: "Xavi said 'go little by little', but the problem is Xavi! He created the problem. And Iniesta and Hammered. They created it".

Slope of Neymar

Another of the points that Josep Maria Bartomeu treated in his interview was the possible course of Neymar, admitting that although the Barça does not want that it leave , the final decision is of the player: "The players decide if they want to go, they can decide, but regarding the Barça, want it and need it".
