In some statements conceded to "Of Morgen", Thomas Vermaelen has defended of the criticisms that have aroused his performances in the two last parties contested by the FC Barcelona, against Málaga and Athletic, in which it did not finish the party by decision of Luis Enrique, being relieved to the rest in The Rosaleda with the excuse that had a yellow card, although it was not making neither much less a good party.

The case is that, to his 30 years, Thomas Vermaelen is conscious that it does not have in the FC Barcelona the weight and the importance that have other footballers like Neymar Jr, Luis Suárez or Leo Messi, but that in spite of this equally plays in "the best team of the world", and can have minutes of game thanks to the rotations that goes making Luis Enrique in defence.

"I am not Messi or Neymar", signals Vermaelen, thinking however that the FC Barcelona "will go back to win the Champions: this is the advantage to have to Leo and Neymar in the changing room". The Belgian head office is conscious that it has not been to his best level during the last appointments.

"I am not the best, but the people forgets that game in the best team of the world and when having rotations, will have occasions to play", comments, explaining besides the differences that sees in the game of the FC Barcelona regarding the that practise other teams, like the selection of Belgium, with which was likely to contest the Eurocopa of France 2016.

"The people expects a lot of us, even see us in the final. There is a lot of talent, but have to go to more, have to control the parties: with the Barcelona takes out the balloon played, whereas with Belgium the goalkeeper takes out in long". Regarding the Eurocopa, Vermaelen thinks that "Hazard, Mertens and Of Bruyne (if it is not drop by injury) will be fundamental" so that Belgium can do a big paper in the tournament, although it will be complicated.

And when they have asked him if in the Premier League produce more injuries by fault of the tightened that is the calendar, Thomas Vermaelen has denied it. "No, it does not have to see with this. With the Barça also contest sixty parties to the year, saves relation with the intensity of the championship. Here even with the colista it is necessary to use all its skill".
