Barcelona Midfielder Arturo Vidal has called on the club to change its ways saying the club have done things that don’t fit with a team at the top level
The Catalan club have insisted that major changes will be made after the shock 8-2 defeat by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Captain of the side Messi has handed in a transfer request, saying he wants to leave the team and Vidalbelieves the team would have to ring the changes.
“Barcelona have done things that don’t fit with a team at the top level,” Vidal told La Tercera.
“In the end, you realise this when you face an organised team, a team that has a winning mentality, with players that are physically prepared and that has a very strong game plan. That takes its toll when you’re weak in the head and in energy – that happened to us. Barcelona first have to change the way they think because football has evolved a lot.
“DNA is being left behind and other teams are improving in other aspects. Nowadays, football is more physical, more about strength and speed, and technical ability can sometimes come second. Barcelona have to change lots of things. A club, which I think is the best in the world, can’t have 13 professional players and the rest youngsters. He stated.
