The FC Barcelona has put his project in hands of Quique Setién, that will calibrate his options in LaLiga and the Glass of Rey. The technician is decided to begin to improve to his team while they go happening the parties, and looks askance to a Champions League that will return in February with the crosses of eighth. In a week of premières, the Cantabrian has important news on a footballer that is under his radar.

Ronald Araujo will not be able to participate in the tournament of the 'KO' after being sanctioned in the filial, in which it will fulfil cycle of cautions after seeing a yellow cardboard against the Nàstic of Tarragona. The one of Rivera protested to the referee during the defeat of his in the Nou Estadi and won a punishment that will affect him in the Group III of the Second Division B, but also with the 'greater', that meditan his promotion in case of need.

Before being able to play with the first team, the Uruguayan would have to fulfil the penalty in the competition in which it was received, a marked restriction by the rule. This involves that until happened the Sunday 26, in which there is an appointment against the Ejea, will not be available, and will not be able to help to his mates but neither to Leo Messi and company, neither against the Ibiza the Wednesday 22 neither neither the Saturday 25 in front of Valencia.

The Catalans know well the lesson after the controversial 'case Chumi', that ready was to cost them a discontent does hardly some months. The central Galician was called for a commitment copero taking advantage of that it could not play with the Barça B, and after a stir formed by the means, the Committee of Competition warned that only they rid to be deleted because the claim of the Raise arrived out of term.

This setback will limit the rotations that Setién will be able to do in the saga, in which, after the exit of Jean-Clair Todibo, only remain Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti. The charrúa is one of the footballers of the filial that more likes to the technicians, that equally could throw hand of the own Chumi or of Óscar Mingueza, since Jorge Cuenca, another of his possible alternative, is of drop by injury.

The restrictions of the Glass of Rey

This will not be the only question that Setién will have to take into account, since the fixed Glass a minimum number of players of the first team that have to be on the lawn not to incur in undue alignment. At least seven 'veteran' have to be at the same time in the field, what, for example Ernesto Valverde compensated putting to eight to avoid some fright in case of injuries or expulsions that could affect to his. The rest leaves space for the members of the filial, that could have an expected opportunity in Can Misses.
