Penalty Execution, Neymar License Previously on Messi
Barcelona – Unusually, Barcelona penalty taken Neymar. Because Lionel Messi is the main executor of the Catalans, Luis Enrique believes that Neymar has permission first in his senior.
Barcelona won 3-1 at home to Villarreal in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final round. Host advantage could accrue penalty if Neymar is not countered goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo.
Neymar as executor in advance of the game invites the question as Messi was still on the field. Messi, as confirmed Enrique, has been selected as the main penalty taker team.
So what happens then?
“We made a list of penalty taker but they (the players) are decided. Leo has always been the executor and Neymar both. I think they’ve talked and I trust completely,” Enrique said after the game.
“I imagine Neymar will first ask the permission of the Leo … they chose. They were both there at the top of the list (the kicker penalty),” said Enrique in the US.
Messi could not hide the look disappointed when seeing Neymar penalty goalkeeper blocked. But the 3-1 victory achieved by not making these failures seems to be a big problem.
