In what comes as a shocking piece of information, Lionel Messi has apparently told his friends that Luis Suarez is not really that good at the moment.
Suarez has had his injury woes from the beginning of the season which has caused him great discomfort. The hit man has not been able to find top form yet this season, and it has also been reported that he is putting off surgery because of the ongoing injury troubles to other players at the club.
Messi though is convinced that Suarez has not been the same since Neymar’s departure. Neymar and Messi were very close to Suarez, both on and off the field. The trio were best friends and the Brazilian’s departure was a huge blow to Suarez.
While Messi has still looked in sparkling form, Suarez looks a shadow of his former self. A combination of injuries, absence of Neymar and a gradual slowing down of his physical prowess has contributed in Suarez’s poor output this season.
Messi has told some of his friends that Suarez should become fine after Dembele returns from injury. Barcelona’s huge summer signing injured himself and will be out for a couple of months longer.
The Argentine feels that once Suarez gets back to his physical best, he will be able to form a good partnership with Dembele which would once again propel Barcelona to the top. And with Messi in such form, you would find it hard to argue against the Argentine genius.
