Messi has credited the friendship Luis Suarez and Neymar enjoy off the pitch for their success on it.
The Barcelona trio; Messi, Suarez and Neymar scored 120 goals between them in a La Liga calendar and broke the record of 118 goals set by Ronaldo, Higuain and Benzema for Madrid in 2011-12 season.
Messi has now chalked the success MSN are enjoying to the friendship they share off the pitch, a friendship that started when Suarez joined from Liverpool.
“We three get along really well, not only on the field but also off it too,” the Argentina international told the Times of India. “I think that if you get along well off the pitch, it makes things easier on the pitch.
“There is an understanding between us which makes it look so easy, but there is a lot of hard work behind it.
“Last year, I had an inconsistent season. I was out for a long time due to injuries and I missed a lot of matches.
“When I returned to the field I never felt right. 2014 was a year I tried to forget quickly and recovered my best form thanks to the joy, hard work and effort that I have always had. Thankfully, now I feel very good.”
