Why Lionel Messi never likes to watches the game again in Television.
Performance analysis is one of the biggest strengths in modern sports. It will help the players to look at their own and opponent’s performance and the staffs will help them based on that regard going into the next game.
However, it looks the five-time Ballon d’Or winner does not need that technology and he does not watch the old games on television or laptop because he is too hard on himself and prefers to leave matters which has happened on the pitch itself, according to his strike partner Luis Suarez.
The Uruguyuan was asked if Messi would study the game before heading into the game, Suarez responded to Sport by saying, “No, but we talk about a lot of situations in matches.
“The good as much as the bad because we’re both self-critical. There are days when the team wins and I feel frustrated because I didn’t perform well.
“And Leo knows I’m in an argumentative mood. The same way I know when he’s angry because he didn’t have a good performance.”
Luis Suarez has been the best striker over the last eight years arguably having produced consistent displays over the same amount of time. The former Liverpool striker decided to move to Nou Camp in a deal which involved 65 million euros during the summer of 2014 after producing some scintillating displays for the Reds by scoring 31 goals in a Premier League campaign.
When Barcelona took on Ajax in the Champions League, Lionel Messi did not have much space to exploit through the middle, hence Suarez asked him to drift through the wide which would automatically enhance their games to the next level.
This move paid off as the Argentine was able to find the back of the net twice in that game which helped the Blaugrana to win the tie 2-0.
Suarez asked in @sport about his famous positional switch with Messi: “In a game v. Ajax, Leo (as a false 9) felt he had no space, and I moved inside… when I was going to switch again, Leo said ‘if you want, stay there'”.

Speaking in the post-match press interview, Barcelona’s number 9 said that they swapped positions during the game which helped the course for the away side.
“They sat really deep and of course, with Leo in that position, he wasn’t finding much space and they put me in there,”
“We made two really good plays and when I was about to go back out wide, Leo said:’If you want, you can stay here.’
“As if he was asking me. I stayed in that position and it was later Luis Enrique who decided, after speaking to all three of us, to stick with it. “Would you like to keep playing that way?” With me as the ‘9’. We all said yes. And that’s how it stayed.”
Lionel Messi once again showed his outrageousness when he scored a couple against Valencia in the La Liga which helped Barcelona to draw the game after trailing the game 2-0 in the first half.
