BREAKIING: “Messi, Suarez and Neymar should be banned” – Sampaoli
Chile boss Jorge Sampaoli has joked that world football governing body FIFA must ban Barcelona’s attacking trident of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, as the ‘MSN’ greatly tips the scales in the Catalan’s favour.
The stellar Latin American attacking combination romped to a ridiculous 122 goals last season, and has already netted 67 times this campaign as Luis Enrique’s side look to repeat their sensational treble from lasts season.

Sampaoli believes the friendship between the players is the key, and puts them ahead of
Real Madrid’s attacking trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, the’BBC’.
“Fifa must intervene. The friendship between Leo, Neymar and Suarez is the worst thing that has happened to football,” Sampaoli joked in an interview with Spanish dailyEl Pais.

“Leo alone can win a game. If, in addition, he empowers Suarez and Neymar, that is invaluable. They should ban it.
“The difference with Madrid is that Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema, their trident, do not enhance each other but are neutralised.

“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.”
Argentine-born Sampaoli led Chile to their first international title when the hosted and won last year’s Copa America, and was tipped for the FIFA coach of the year, which was eventually scooped by Barca’s Luis Enrique.
