'Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez & Neymar Overshadow The Bad Things FC Barcelona Are Doing'
The amazing things Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar do have overshadowed all the bad things FC Barcelona have been doing over the past couple of years, according to La Liga expert Guillem Balague.
The Spanish giants have had their fair share of problems in recent times – examples include the tax scandals some of their players are involved in, and when the club was called out by FIFA for signing youth players illegally.
In an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma’s Kurt Buckerfield, Balague was asked if the brilliance of the Catalan club's front trio has covered up some of the bad things going on in the background at the club.
"Yes, I think that the beauty and talent of the front three has overshadowed some of the bad things the club has been doing," Balague answered.
"They've been doing a lot of bad things. They lack leadership, they have been involved in court cases, and they've been doing illegal contracts in the case of Neymar. A lot of bad things.
"They are hiding a lot of the problems the club has. The moment that Messi leaves the club, there will be huge drama and a crisis at Barcelona."
The world-class trio have put in a few stellar performances for the Blaugrana this season, and have scored a total of 81 goals in all competitions so far in this campaign.
