Lionel messi has not been able to score brilliant goals like he has been doing the past few seasons. Since the departure of playmaker including Xavi, Iniesta from the club, the brilliant forward has been finding it very hard to find the back of the net. The only Barcelona teammate that understands Lionel messi very well is Sergio busquets but the defensive midfielder has reached his peak in football and can no longer deliver as he used to in his youth.
Lionel messi has now been sorrounded by young players like Pedri, Ruiqui Puig, Dembele, Oscar Mingueza and other bright stars but none of them can fill Xavi or Iniesta role at the club. Tough defenders like Dani alves, Puyol have made Barcelona formidable and the team needs to find replacement for each of these legends which has now become a very tough task.
Oscar Mingueza and Ronald Araujo together with Sergino Dest are doing everything they can and plays with everything they have got but still needs to improve more if Barcelona still wants to have a shot at the Champions league.
Messi has been struggling these past few seasons and came very close to depart from the club. The newly elected president have promised Lionel messi that they will do everything they can to assist him with the best players available.
Lionel messi often plays deep role and gets deep into the midfield, he's a number 10, a goalscorer not a deep role midfielder. He needs to be inside the oppositions box at all times not playing in deep role.
