Junior Firpo will play the next five seasons at FC Barcelona. The player is one of the left sides with more projection in Europe and his verticality and physical power could be very important for Barça
The FC Barcelona already has to his longed for left side. The culés have announced this Sunday the signing of Junior Firpo, already ex carrilero left-handed of the Real Betis. The born player in the Dominican Republic has cost 18 million fixed euros more other 12 in variables and will sign by the next five years, until June of 2024.
The blaugranas fichan to a player that promises a lot and that is considered one of the projects of left sides more interesting of the European continent. The international sub-21 Spanish carries only a year being headline in First, but in this time has given him spare time to show all what has inside.
Definitely, the physicist is what more stands out at first sight in Junior. The Hispanic-dominican has a privileged physicist and in career with the balloon controlled is almost imparable. His stride is enormous and in attack with spaces can be decisive. In the Camp Nou shattered to Sergi Roberto in the gone of League of the past season and even marked a goal with a powerful shot.
His offensive qualities do him be a very interesting value for a Barça that needs offensive sides that can add from backwards. Junior is perfect for a system of game like this and his society with Messi seems that it could be more than interesting. Besides, with Quique Setién has showed that it is more than able to take out the balloon controlled from backwards, something that in Can Barça is indispensable.
Technically, without being brilliant, is a good player and does not put nervous with the balloon. It stands out to a large extent his capacity to arrive to background line with power yet still have the tranquility and the skill to put good centres to the area. Still it has to grow in almost all the appearances of his game, but with 22 years already seems a player with experience and quality to play in the Barça.
Defensivamente Has to improve
In attack can be decisive and in the future probably was it even more, but in defence still has some disconnections that have to concern him. The international Spanish has to improve in defensive tasks to be able to reach his potential maximum. In the Barça will attack him less than in the Betis and his errors will be even more evident, with what will have to loan more attention. If all goes out well, Junior could finish turning into one of the best of the world in his position, but will have to work a lot to achieve it.
