…..Barcelona Criticised Individual Errors
Tensions continue to escalate in the Barcelona dressing room following Tuesday’s 3-0 loss against Juventus in Turin, with Luis Enrique unhappy with the errors of three players in particular.
On Wednesday morning, the Blaugrana coach held a 30-minute meeting before training to analyse the previous night’s loss against the Italian champions.
In addition, he got across the message his side simply must bounce back but in his press conference after the game, he was also keen to emphasise that his players had made significant errors in terms of their positioning.
According to TV3, the men singled out in that regard were Gerard Pique, Javier Mascherano and Neymar, for various different tactical reasons.
In the case of Pique, he was frustrated with how deep the defensive line sat, something which has crept into the Blaugrana’s recent displays.
A particular error from Mascherano led to exasperation from Luis Enrique, while Neymar was also reproached for coming too deep to receive the ball and nullifying his attacking threat.
