The ex trainer of the Real Madrid and future technician of the Bayern Munich from the next season 2016-17, Carlo Ancelotti, has conceded an interview to "Sina Sports" in which it has spoken of which would be his strategy to try stop the feet to the excelso FC Barcelona of Luis Enrique, and in concrete to Leo Messi that has purchased an again stellar level since it began the new year 2016. Ancelotti, that suffered to the Barça of Messi when it trained to the PSG and to the Real Madrid, gives some guidelines on how brake him.

"I can give some guidelines like trainer. A defence man to man with him is very complicated, the marker would have to surrender to very high level. The best way to limit to Messi requires of a big effort of all the team, tightening the distance between the lines and avoiding that it contact with the balloon", signals. The pressure of balloon, especially, has to go exerted in the centre of the field, the heart of the FC Barcelona. "It is important to situate to a high number of footballers in this zone to destroy the midfield of the Barça, prevent them play with freedom his football. This also reduces the options of Messi and the probability that it arrive him the balloon, besides moves him away of the positions where more damage does. The team has to be joined, concentrated and not committing any error".

Messi almost always starts from the band and progresses until the centre, desordenando to the rival defence. "We know that it does hollow from the side to arrive to the centre, the midfield players need presionar to interfere and treat to detain him near of the band, because satisfied was approaching to the frontal of the area will find comfortable with his shot with the left", comments Ancelotti. In any case, no all solves stopping to Leo Messi. "Doing all this, can find you with another problem, the Barça has more arms. If you put your attention in Messi and focus all your defence to him, the danger can arrive of other players. As I said, the effort of all the team is vital if you confront you to the Barcelona".

In spite of everything, Ancelotti has launched a big praise to Leo Messi, ensuring that when the Argentinian star of the Barça is to the one hundred by one hundred, is entirely impossible to stop him the feet. "My conclusion is that if Messi is to 100% in the physical appearance, try stop him is impossible, does not matter the trainer, does not matter the tactics neither the defensive strategy. The immense talent of Messi prevents to his opponents anticipate, like this there is not form to control him".
