In summer of 2014, the FC Barcelona did with the services of Luis Suárez paying 81 million euros to the Liverpool. The Uruguayan formed a lethal trident beside Leo Messi and Neymar and began occupying the right flank. Robert Moreno, seleccionador of Spain and assistant of Luis Enrique in his stage like technician culé, explained in an interview for El País how 'the gunman' and 'the flea' exchanged positions.
Robert recognised that all was idea of the own Messi in an Ajax-Barça of Champions League. "It explained it Leo. It was in the field of the Ajax, in a party of Champions. Luis Suárez was playing in band and Leo commented him: 'want to put You inside?'. Messi approached to the band and asked him to Luis Enrique if it mattered him. It arose of spontaneous way, accepted and gave us a lot", said.
The seleccionador Spanish explained that they tried to adapt to each crack to the place in which more comfortable could feel . "Leo and Suárez said us where found more to taste, but did a very powerful work. To Leo did not say him put you here and do what want to", commented.
"Luis Suárez was playing in band and Leo commented him: "want to put You inside?"
From here, reordenaron the positions of each player in thefield . "Messi is very intelligent, is permanently looking how are the rivals and always has the capacity to put in the space where he thinks that can receive. As this did not want to it cut, analyse the most usual positions to which went and were four. We took to the rest and said them 'when I Read was here, your here, your here and your here'. We order to the rest so that it could go to these positions and the team no desequilibrara", explained.
Robert Moreno has a big memory of the Argentinian and did not doubt in undoing in praises to him. "The best of the history, did not see to Peeled and to Maradona little. Messi is not only a player estratosférico, extraterrestrial, but already it said it Valdano: it is Maradona every day. Train him is difficult, little can help him", aimed.
Also it spoke on the day in day out with the '10'. "It communicates playing, says the just and necessary. It does not need to speak more. It tries to win in each training, is of the things that are mad about me of him. Therefore it is the best. In any partidillo angers if it does not win Sometimes think: 'Hostia, the day that Read remain without football, do not know what goes him to happen'. It is very demanding with which has around. As it knows that win does not depend only of him, demands that all what are to his around give the highest level", sentenced.
The figure of Neymar
On Neymar, Robert showed totally admired by his quality and his sacrifice. "It is fast, has quality, goal, dribbling… Does the ordinary things to an extraordinary speed, as Leo. With us, that is of what can and have to speak, was incredible how sacrificed in the moment in which we saw that with the 4-1-4-1 did not arrive us, and happen to the 4-4-2. Of the trident was to him to the that touch him put to defend and did it", concluded.
