In the Barcelona changing room, as we comment recently here in 'FCBN', seems to have a sector that does not agree with the management of Xavi Hernández, the trainer of the club. According to several informative sources, one of these names would be the right extreme Raphinha, the one who would not be very satisfied with his paper in the staff and would express the need to have more continuity in the eleven of the egarense, since it is used to to be relieved with frequency.

Now it has arisen new information that could reinforce the idea that the relation between the one of Terrassa and the one of Carry Cheerful does not go through his best moment. According to aseveró the journalist Gerard Romero, there was an altercation between the '11' and the technical director Catalan during the commitment between the FC Barcelona and Valencia CF of the day 33 of LaLiga EA Sports, which could have trastocado a bit more his relation.

According to Romero, during the 'bump' between the 'chés' and the culés, the exjugador of the Leeds showed his dissatisfaction when being substituted to the 66' by Joãor Félix, and abused to Óscar Hernández, second trainer of the bench culé and brother of Xavi. This would not have seated at all well to the technical director, the one who would have said him the following: "Calm, that will not play against the Girona".

This assertion did not go in vain, since against the cast 'Gironí', Raphinha was not to title. In his place, Fermín López occupied the position of false left extreme-fourth midfield player. It did not go until the minute 69 that Hernández gave him the opportunity to 'Rapha' of ingresar to the field. This could consider like a call of attention for the right extreme, the one who previously had been headline against the Real Madrid and Valencia CF, and afterwards of this 'banquillazo' against the gerundenses, contested the 90 minutes in the clash against the Real Sociedad.

It is necessary to stand out that this is not the first incident that rumorea that it has occurred between Xavi Hernández and Raphinha. To beginnings of year, during the commitment between the UD The Palms and the FC Barcelona, the '11' received a catchword quite airado by part of Xavi (with included insults, as it informed 'SPORT'), to what the player went back to the trainer and even approached to the sideline to give him explanations, concluding with a "can not do at all more".
