Vilanova: Who wouldn't depend on Messi?

The 44-year-old Blaugrana coach believes any side would be reliant on a player as good as the Argentine and says he does not care when his men win La Liga

Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova believes that any team in the world would depend on Lionel Messi.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well hes not going to be around for every game. Take Inter for example, they were highly dependent on Ibra and when he left the team started playing more of a team game and won the treble.

Its not good too depend on one player Barcas 1st half against PSG showed that.

I think the problem is they depend too much on him psychologically. But then again who wouldn't.

lol, That is exactly what I was telling people watching the PSG game. Messi didnt do anything in the game it was all psychological. Its like the PSG players got scared when he came on and the Barca players got a morale boost.

Well actually he basically built up a play between him and Villa, which led to Pedro's goal.

Against Bayern, he just wasn't ready physically and mentally, not to mention Barca sometimes narrows its options too much.
