Video Proves 'MSN' Are The Greatest Footballing Trio Of All-Time
Tearing teams apart left right and centre en route to a historic treble win under Luis Enrique in 2015, their accumulative numbers were utterly ridiculous.

In total, prior to the three-piece disbanding when Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record £198 million, they played 450 games together across three seasons and won two La Liga titles, three Copa Del Reys and one Champions League.
The famed MSN triad of #FCBarcelona is finally broken.... now history. Sad, they just played 3 seasons together.

In that time, they racked up 364 goals and 173 assists between them - which just highlights their unbelievable understanding on the pitch.

Without even needing to look, they knew exactly where one another would be and some of their one-touch interplay. Should you need reminding of some of the magic they conjured up, feast your eyes on the following tribute video:
The end of the GREATEST FORWARD TRIO in Football History.

Neymar has gone on to achieve great things at PSG but he has gone on record to state he misses the dynamic with Messi and Suarez on and off the pitch.
"The friendship that we had was something very beautiful. What I miss from Barcelona and about Barcelona is these two, due to the joy we had on a daily basis," he told Zico via Goal back in 2018.
"There was a game where I dribbled several players and then gave a pass.
"Messi dribbled several players in another play and Suarez tried to do the same dribbling and then a backflip pass.
"We started to laugh at him. We were so intimate that we could laugh at each other when one couldn't do things. And then he arrives at the locker room and says: 'Well, I saw you dribbling and I tried to do the same!'"
Messi, despite his best efforts to leave in the summer, remains the last man standing from the trio and looks set to continue carrying the burden under new boss Ronald Koeman.
