"Trying to replace a player like Messi is impossible"

Luis Enrique talked before the media with a main topic: Leo Messi's injury. The coach knows that it's impossible to replace Leo Messi but he explained that he won't change style for his absence.

In fact, the coach appeared due to this Tuesday's match vs Bayer Leverkusen. After the draw in the first Champions League match, Luis Enrique knows it's key to win the Germans.

Messi's low

"Trying to replace a player like Messi is impossible. We will try to do same things but with different protagonists."

"Neymar will be doing same role, as well as Suárez or Iniesta. They have done it well so far."

"I saw Messi encouraged. He is ok. He is 2 days closer to his comeback."

The squad

"Bravo and Alba are ready. We will see if we include them in the squad list."

"Adriano couldn't train. He got a blow and we will see how he evolves."

Level of play

"There are many improving points. We are in a stage in which every mistake is terrible, so we have to correct them."

Neymar

"Neymar in the middle forward? It's a possibility. We have watched some Brazil matches where he played in this position."
