In the middle of a crisis by the injuries, Ronald Koeman has received a good news in the last training of the Barcelona: Umtit and Araújo are smart to go back
The injuries have been the worst enemy of the FC Barcelona and Ronald Koeman in the beginning of campaign. After not being able to fichar in the summer to Eric García, the Dutch trainer has seen lesionarse to the majority of his defenders and has found in a very critical situation. First it was Jordi Alba, afterwards Ronald Araújo, until arriving to the ones of Gerard Hammered and Sergi Roberto, those who will be drop by a few months. The axis of the defensive saga has been the most affected zone and Koeman has had to contrive a new system. It has delayed to Frenkie of Jong of his position in some occasions and has thrown of the quarry, with Óscar Mingueza, to substitute the absences.
The good news for the technician blaugrana is that it will recover to Samuel Umtiti and Ronald Araújo for the next commitments of the Barcelona, in LaLiga, in front of the Cádiz, and the Champions League, in front of the Juventus. The central trained with normality this Thursday in the Sportive City in the back session to the victory 0-3 in Budapest and the feelings, up to now, are very good.
It is necessary to remember that Ronald Araújo lesionó during the second date of the phase of groups of the League of Champions, in front of the Vechia Signora, when it was forced to abandon the terrain of game in the second part of the party with samples of pain. Afterwards, the Barcelona confirmed that the French defender was touched of the biceps femoral of his right leg. It has been drop from recently more than a month but already would be very near to go back.
By his part, Samuel Umtiti found recovering of his last injury of knee, that suffered during the month of May. The French has seen in free fall his performance, to consequence of the problems that drags in his knee and his decision of not going through the operating theatre, but seems to be to 100%. The Wednesday, while the first team goleaba to the Ferencváros, Umtiti played 60 minutes with the filial and left good feelings.
Koeman Great new variables for the defence
From this Saturday, Koeman will have to his disposal to four natural head offices: Clément Lenglet, headline insdicutible, Samuel Umtiti, Ronald Araújo and Oscar Minguenza, the one who has fulfilled -almost- to perfection in the three parties that has contested with the T-shirt of the first team blaugrana. The player of the Barça B has showed to have character and the results have been positive. When it has been headline, the culés have won and did not fit goals.
Mingueza Is a bet for the present and future. The Dutch technician already has warned him that has some appearances that improve, but that his performances have been very good. Now, with Araújo and Umtiti available, the most likely is that it was the Uruguayan the one who accompany to Lenglet and was the first option to substitute to Gerard Hammered, although for the moment Koeman does not want to risk him.
