Josep Maria Bartomeu believes Barcelona have the best in the world in Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar. ‘The fans haven’t seen anything like it.’
Bartomeu has been interviewed by the BBC to mark La Blaugrana’s Champions League tie with Arsenal and after talking the financial might of the Premier League and Manchester City’s Catalan influence, was asked about Luis Enrique’s front three.
“Right now, we are happy because we have the best players in the world,” he said.
“Messi is with us, Neymar is an incredible player of the future, but Suarez brought the balance to them. Together, this trident is incredible.
“The fans of Barcelona have never seen players do this.”
Former Liverpool striker Suarez, who nearly joined Arsenal in 2013, has, Bartomeu admits, been a bigger success than anticipated.
“We are very happy with him. We knew he was an incredible player and he has been better than expectations,” he noted of the Uruguayan.
