Manchester United Captain Wayne Rooney believes that this crop of Barcelona players are one of the best to come out of Catalyuna.
Barcelona won the champions league twice under Pep Guardiola and also recorded a treble. Barcelona under Luis Enrique has won the UCL and recorded a treble.
Wayne Rooney believes Enrique’s barca can rival that of Pep Guardiola’s way back in 2009.
“Barcelona are a fantastic team,” the Manchester United striker told ESPN. “After Real Madrid winning the Champions League [in 2014], [Barca] wouldn’t have liked that and they’ve come out again and been incredible really.
“I believe they’ve probably been as good as they ever have been over the last 10 years.
“It’s a different way of playing [under Luis Enrique]. They’re defending a little bit deeper and not going and closing down teams the way they did and they’re hurting teams on the counter-attack.
“You can see there’s a change in the way they play but, with the players they have got, obviously [Lionel] Messi, Neymar and [Luis] Suarez, they are a massive threat to anyone.”
