Gerard Pique says the key to Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez’s success is the relationship they have with each other, adding that having the three of them makes it easier to win titles.
Messi is currently injured at the moment, but Neymar and Suarez have been more than capable of holding the fort while he’s away.
Between the trio, they scored over 100 goals last season as Barcelona won the treble in Luis Enrique’s first season in charge.
“The key of these three is the relationship that they have – you can see that on the pitch, tt’s magnificent,” Pique said in an interview with The Telegraph.
“For example, when one is scoring a lot and the other is not scoring – Neymar, the other day, he gave the penalty to Luis Suarez.”
The 28-year-old praised the fact none of the South Americans have let their egos come to the fore, despite the fact they would all be the star man at any other club in the world.
“Suarez was the main star in Liverpool, Leo before we had Suarez and Neymar; it was just him. And how they connect – they do not have any ego and this is the most important part,” he added.
“And they are different. Neymar is the best one-on-one. He is unstoppable. You have Leo Messi who is the most complete player in the world – he can attack, defend, he can head the ball even though he is small.
“And then you have Luis Suarez and his first touch in the box is fantastic.
“It’s easier to win titles when you have team-mates like Messi. To have Messi, Neymar and Suarez up-front. It is the best in the world.”
