‘Enrique picked on Pique, Masche, Neymar’

Luis Enrique reportedly focused his post-Juventus criticism on three Barcelona players: Gerard Pique, Javier Mascherano and Neymar.

Mundo Deportivo cites a report from TV3 that claims the Coach’s post-match review with the players complained of Pique’s positioning in the back three, Mascherano’s play in midfield and Neymar’s tendency to come deep.

It’s also claimed Lucho reproached the Barca squad for their attitude in Turin in what was the harshest meeting between players and Coach in the latter’s tenure at the club.

Enrique’s criticism of the team’s attitude centred on the first half of the 3-0 defeat, and also a lack of ambition and a reluctance to take risks of some of the players.
