Luis Suarez admitted in an interview with Hat Trick Barca on TV3 that this Barcelona side doesn't have "the same punch" as last season's. He also believes that Lionel Messi is "irreplacable" and that "it doesn't make sense" that "they whistle the team" after winning the treble last season and the European Super Cup. The full interview will be broadcast on October 18.
"We don't have the same punch that we had last year, but okay... last season at the start, we won the games and you felt that we were there. The second half, however, was where we were spectacular."
"Obviously with Leo it's a lot easier, bur without him we have to try and make it easy still, and each one should be responsible for their work and doing it in the best way possible. Nobody will want to replace him because he's irreplacable."
I don't like the whistles
"One doesn't like to be whistled for nothing, in any sense. It was wonderful when we won the treble, when we won the European Super Cup, and now, for losing one or two games, they start to judge the team for a few things, I think it makes no sense."
