Gerard Pique statement back in August 14, 2020 is now reverberating all around Camp Nou after Barcelona suffered another humiliating defeat in the Champions league.
This time around, the score wasn’t 8-2 but 4-1 to a PSG team without two of their finest players in Neymar or Di Maria.
But despite their absence, Barcelona just couldn’t Kylian Mbappe who single handily torn them to shreds by scoring a memorable hat trick and exposing how useless the defense and midfield is.
Had Neymar or Di Mari played, PSG would’ve scored 8 or 9 goals against average Blaugrana giants.
As it stands, Barcelona is a mediocre club who depends solely on the creative impetus of the fading Lionel Messi.
Sadly, the 33-year-old no longer posses the incredible ability to beat 3 or 4 men with a single movement neither can he slalom his way towards goal and shoot accurately to goal and score. .
No disrespect to Messi but at his current form, he is holding the club back and now needs to leave so Barcelona can rebuild. Messi along with 3 old guards must just go.
Old Guards like Gerard Pique should leave the club this summer. The 34-year-old no longer posses the pace or physicality to match the best players in the world. His inability to man mark Kylian Mbappe proved he is no longer a top level defender.
Samuel Umtiti is done and dusted. He is no longer useful at Barcelona.
Also, Sergio Busquet should also be leaving the club. He is not good enough to orchestrate Barcelona’s midfield neither is he good enough to break down attacks.
Jordi Alba, 31, should also be leaving the club this summer. The left back has outlived his usefulness and now needs to leave.
