The trainer of Barça, Ernesto Valverde, faces his third season at the head of an apparently improved team. After two courses of a lot of triumphs but also of doubts, arrives the decisive course
To Ernesto Valverde has arrived him the hour of the truth. The trainer of the FC Barcelona faces his third season at the head of a team that has reinforced actively in the market of signings. The new incorporations of footballers would have to go up the level of the group, and give this plus that has been missing in the two years precedents. The 'Txingurri' also has to correspond, from the bench, to the unconditional confidence of the directive in his work.
Will have the clear aim, once again, to heave the Champions League. The League and the Glass obviously also are important, but the maximum continental competition is the object of common wish. For the team, but also for the technician, that has lived with enormous disappointment his two consecutive failures. In his first year, in Rome; and in his second, in Liverpool. The obsession of Valverde is resarcirse of these two terrible varapalos, and reign finally in Europe.
The trainer extremeño is conscious that it has to him a lot to Bartomeu and his board, since what the majority expected is that it was ceased after the disaster of Anfield. This new opportunity that has been him awarded presents like a reválida: in his third season, and with reinforcements of level 'top', the team would have to show like a solid and solid block. Especially in the big European appointments, the pending subject of the 'was Valverde'.
Valverde Goes to have to his disposal to a group of authentic luxury. Of Jong and Griezmann arrive to be determinants and improve the centre of the field and the forward respectively. The Net Brazilian goalkeeper, in principle acting of Ter Stegen but ambitious in his first statements, aspires to put him the difficult things to his technician to the hour to choose to the guardameta.
Of Jong, Griezmann, Net... And what remains for arriving
To these three novelties expects that a some name more, especially in the left side and in the forward if it goes out any of the current attackers. It seems that the one who more numbers has in this tessitura is Malcom Oliveira, with important offers of the big Leagues of Europe. But it does not be necessary descartar exits of greater weight, as the one of Coutinho or even of Dembélé.
The main for Valverde in his third season is that it goes to be followed having the hard core of the staff (Messi, Luis Suárez, Busquets, Arthur, Hammered, Jordi Alba or Ter Stegen), more the arrival of the new signings. That is the bet culé: keep the structure and reinforce it with 'cracks' contrasted. Like this it will try the 'Txingurri' not failing. And, this time, without waistcoat anti-bullets.
