New coach, Messi goal

After a start splashed with injuries that prevented him from scoring until day eight against Sevilla, He knew how to chain a phenomenal streak of twelve goals in eight games. Nevertheless, In the last four league games he has only been able to score a goal for Alavés. He dried himself before Real, in the Classic and in the derby against Espanyol.Messi, in fact, has almost impossible to get into the fight to win his seventh Golden Boot. With 13 goals and 26 points, he is seven goals and fourteen points from Ciro Immobile, current leader of the European scorers table ahead of Robert Lewandowski. However, the Argentine yes He has been able to support the first place in the LaLiga scorers table. It’s hard to guess what it will be Messi’s reaction to this change of coach, the fifth He has lived since he was at Barça, where he has been directed by Rijkaard, Guardiola, Tito Vilanova, Tata Martino, Luis Enrique and now Quique Setién. With the latter, the Argentine has made it almost customary to welcome them with goals. Messi scored in the debut with Tito Vilanova. In the Supercopa of 2012 (goal in a 3-2 to Madrid) and in LaLiga (two goals in a 5-1 to Real). With Martino, he made a double in the official debut in LaLiga 2013-14 of the Argentine coach (7-0) to Levante. With Luis Enrique, he scored in the first League match of the 2014-15 campaign (another double in a 3-0 against Elche). Finally also He scored a penalty goal against Madrid in Ernesto Valverde’s first official match at the head of Barça in full depression by the march of Neymar. Messi has been seen smiling in the first training with Setién, that he has dedicated words of admiration from day one, but also assured that he would know how to keep his distance and be in his place when the time came. Messi is not an easy player for technicians. Wanted to Rijkaard more over time than at the time (he was disliked not being in the 2006 Champions League final), he lived from more to less with Guardiola, appreciated Tito, endured Martino and with Luis Enrique He had the strangest relationship. He wanted to force his way out after the Anoeta storm in January 2015 and ended up in a hug with him in goodbye. “It is very close to Guardiola,” he has said on occasion. He was respected by Valverde until the end, but it is true that with the absolute power he has in the club, he did not avoid his dismissal. Maybe because he saw that the team needed a jolt that, wait, Setien gives him. We’ll see if he also receives the Cantabrian with a goal.last_img read more
