Messi, Neymar and Suárez are divas, says ex-Chelsea midfielder Ballack
The former Germany skipper is in awe of the Barcelona front three's attacking ability but feels they could do more defensively for their team.
Former Germany captain Michael Ballack has revealed his admiration for Barcelona forwards Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar, but feels their unwillingness to defend could be the undoing of their side in the Champions League final. He was quoted in GOAL: "Of course they have weaknesses. Most obviously in terms of their defence, remember Bayern Munich scored three goals in the semi-final second-leg, so they’re clearly vulnerable. Their biggest strength can also become a weakness. Those three forwards are all superstars. They are a little bit like divas sometimes when you see them, they don’t like to defend. So it will be interesting to see how Juventus can create unhappiness in their game. These kind of players like to have the ball, they want to play, they want to enjoy movements, to pass the ball around."
