Leo Messi is becoming a problem for Barça, who gives the feeling of playing worse with him on the pitch. The '10' totally conditions for better and for worse the game of his team, and he showed it again in Cádiz

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Leo Messi is one of the best players of the history, perhaps is the best, but to his 33 years no longer is this total footballer and imparable that went during more than a decade. The '10' is now mortal and like such his level futbolístico no longer is the one who was. In Cádiz was the enésima shows that the rosarino has changed and that no longer is neither the half of decisive of what went in his best times.

The Argentinian keeps on being very good and still can desequilibrar a party almost only, but to which cost? The forward always has conditioned the game of the FC Barcelona, but never had done it as it does it now. Usually, anybody argued that Leo went down to receive to the centre of the field, or that walked, that failed an occasion or that lost a ball, but now all this influences directly in the game of the team.

It gives the feeling that the ones of Ronald Koeman are worse when the one of Rosario is on the field. The dependency of Messi when he plays is almost total and this affects very negatively to the choral game of all the team. Antoine Griezmann, Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembélé... All his mates change, relax and leave him do in place to want to be leading, as for example they went it the French against the Ferencvaros.

Besides, the occupation of spaces with Leo in the field is terrible, since the albiceleste puts of mediocentro when him apetece. This does that the funnel in the centre of the field was greater, that Griezmann remain without spaces or that Frenkie of Jong have to displace and lose importance. In summary, the team does not plant as it would have to neither in attack neither in defence, something that finishes being very hurtful.

Messi, the player that more balloons lost in Cádiz

But the worst with this Messi is that the '10' no longer is decisive. Against the Cádiz lost 29 times the ball, the meeting that more in all the campaign. The forward no longer has the speed of before, costs him more turn without spaces and every time is more imprecise by fault of all this. This data, obviously, affects to all the team, that expects that he decide the parties like antaño, something that this course does not have sucedido hardly ever.

The 'capi' carries 7 goals this year, but 5 of them have been of penalti and the others two were in crashes that already were decided (the 4-0 to Osasuna and the 4-2 to the Betis). They are numbers that say a lot and that leave in evidence the transcendence of Leo in this team. The six times Balloon of Gold conditions it absolutely all and, his effects, at least until the moment, are not being positive for the global operation of the Barça. Ronald Koeman has a lot of work by in front to attain assemble to this Messi with his Barça.
