Chile boss Jorge Sampaoli has joked that FIFA should ban FC Barcelona’s attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.
Sampaoli took time to praise the Catalan’s deadly front-three, jokingly stating that football’s governing body should put an end to their excellence.
"FIFA must intervene. The friendship between Leo, Neymar and Suarez is the worst thing that has happened to football," he told El Pais.
"Leo alone can win a game. If, in addition, he empowers Suarez and Neymar, that is invaluable. They should ban it.
The manager then touched on Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, suggesting those three aren’t quite on the level of ‘MSN.’
"The difference with Madrid is that Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema, their trident, do not enhance each other but are neutralised," he added.
"If Ronaldo starts a move it ends with him, if Bale does it's the same. Benzema grabs what he can but does not create anything."
67 goals have been scored between Messi, Suarez and Neymar this season so far, while there have been 60 strikes between Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo in all competitions.
