Lionel Messi unimpressed with Ernesto Valverde tactics

Barcelona star Lionel Messi is reportedly concerned about the team’s style of play under head coach Ernesto Valverde.

The 53-year-old boss, who has previously managed Valencia and Athletic Bilbao, took over at Camp Nou in the summer following Luis Enrique’s departure.

The Catalan giants have a four-point lead at the top of the La Liga table due to an unbeaten 10-game run.

However, according to Diario Gol, Messi is unimpressed with Valverde’s tactics and is worried that the team will lose their identity due to the lack of free-flowing football.

The report claims that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner does not want Barcelona to play like a Jose Mourinho side, which can be defensive and stifle opponents in order to get the desired result.
