Barcelona star, Lionel Messi insists the club is better since the departure of Neymar, having found stability.
Barcelona lost Neymar to PSG in the off-season, after his release clause of €222 million was activated.
And Messi believes Barcelona, who are still unbeaten in the La Liga and 11 points clear are better without him.
“Without Neymar we are more balanced,” Messi told World Soccer .
“His departure meant a change in our way of playing, we lost a lot of attacking potential, but it helped in the defensive sense.
“We are currently very well armed in the midfield; this makes us stronger in defence.”
