Ernesto Valverde changes Lionel Messi’s position

Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde has changed Lionel Messi’s position in the squad.

The manager said the superstar will play on the right side of the pitch, giving up on his more central role.

“It’s possible – we know his tendency to be drawn to where the ball is,” Valverde told reporters, adding that regardless of where Messi plays on the pitch, the team will gain fruitful results.

“That’s how we’ve started ahead of the new season, we’ll see how he gets on,” Valverde added.

Messi started his Barcelona career as a right-winger, eventually gaining a more central role in Pep Guardiola’s era.

However, in coach Luis Enrique’s era, Messi again shifted to the right side.
