Johan Cruyff: 'Luis Suarez signing could be a problem'

Former Netherlands international Johan Cruyff is unsure whether Luis Suarez will fit into a front three alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar at Barcelona next season.

Former Netherlands international Johan Cruyff believes that Luis Suarez could struggle to fit into a front three alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar at Barcelona next season.

When Suarez returns from a four-month ban, the Uruguayan is expected to be deployed in what will be one of the most exiting forward trios in European football.

However, Cruyff is worried that the focus at the Catalan outfit has become "too individual".

"I can't see how Barca intends to continue playing the same way, with a keen focus on team play if Messi, Neymar and Luis Suárez are in the side," he told De Telegraaf.

"The three of them are too individual. In signing him, the club are showing a preference for individual genius over a team that plays great football."

Suarez moved to Barcelona from Liverpool this summer.
