According to reports, Barcelona have entered a new crisis ahead of their Champions League clash against PSG as Luis Enrique seems to have earned the wrath for substituting Neymar in Barcelonaa s 2-2 draw against Sevilla which has given Real Madrid a boost in the title race.
In the run in for the Spanish La Liga, Barcelona dropped two points as they were held to a 2-2 draw against Sevilla where questions were raised after Luis Enrique decided to take off Neymar to bring Xavi into the game. Neymar was later caught on camera as visibly upset at being taken off the game. Luis Enriquea s tactics were further questioned after Barcelonaa s Vice-President publicly expressed doubt over the substitution while conceding that Enrique must have had his reasons to take Neymar off.
“I don’t know why he took Neymar off. He’d had a great game and scored with an outstanding free-kick. Luis Enrique must have had his reasons. We put in a great first half, but it was a tough game and we’re happy to have come away with an away point.a
According to reports, manager Luis Enrique is feeling a undermineda at the club as his request to extend Dani Alvesa contract with the club is not being respected. Dani Alves has the opportunity to leave Barcelona on a free transfer this summer which will leave the manager severely handicapped as he cannot acquire the services of a new right-back due to the transfer ban.
Hence as Barcelona prepare themselves for a gruelling Champions League tie against PSG, it seems that the Catalan club has entered into another a crisisa following Luis Enriquea s bust-up with Lionel Messi.
