This Wednesday the journalist Javi Miguel explained at Catalunya Radio one of the things that happened in the locker room at FC Barcelona in one of the hardest moments of the season. After the defeat vs At. Madrid at the Camp Nou, which meant elimination of the Champions League and after defeats against R. Sociedad and Valencia in La Liga.

In a crisis situation, therefore, a member of the squad decided to talk to Neymar, one of the players who demonstrated a worse performance. In a normal management, coach (or even the first captain) should take the step, but considering that the current Barça trio works independently as a sub in the dressing room, it was someone else who took charge of the situation.

Javier Mascherano, captain since last summer, is one of the players with more leadership in the locker room and is more accustomed to conflicts than Iniesta, the first captain. Furthermore, he is the closest player to the three forwards and often acts as liaison between Luis Enrique and them. So after these defeats, he approached Neymar and told him "you should not be so selfish."

Mascherano did not refer only to his performance on the field, but about the social life of the Brazilian off the pitch.

By the way, Javi Miguel also explained that the squad didn't celebrate Luis Enrique's birthday.
