After the course of Dani Alves, and without a signing of guarantees that him supliera, there was the fear -intelligible in good measure- that the right side remained orphan. The Brazilian player had left the very high slat, as much as to be considered the best right side of the history of the Barcelona.

But Luis Enrique knew to find in Sergi Roberto to his substitute. No natural, but yes effective. "Only a player with the intelligence of Sergi can surrender to a so high level in a position that is not his", explained the Asturian technician two years ago, in September of 2015, when the Catalan player exerted for the first time of carrilero. "The one who have come to the Camp Nou today and have not seen him play will think that it is lateral of all the life", apuntilló. Roberto had signed a remarkable meeting in front of the Málaga.

"Only a player like Sergi can surrender to a so high level in a position that is not his"

Although the first reaction of Sergi Roberto when being informed that his position would finish delaying of the centre of the field until the side was negative -or at least, reacia-, the Catalan was learning mechanisms and entering defensive tactical appearances in his game -placing, avoid offside, coordination with the left side…- until feeling , even, comfortable. "Never it had played in this position but the football evolves and it is necessary to know adapt. Now I know that I also can hurt from further back, taking advantage of the factor surprise", confessed Roberto recently.

This season his transcendence in the team already has been total. Of the 45 parties that has played to date, in 38 occasions has done it like titling. Figures very couples to the ones of his ancestor, Dani Alves, that did two assistances more in his last season like Barcelona (8, by 6 of Roberto until the moment). Comparing the statistical -table of down- of this course (remain three parties) and the ones of antaño, the player formed in the Farm surpasses already to Alves in finish and goals -the unforgettable that marked to the PSG in the extention to classify to the Barça to the quarter-finals of the Champions-. An interesting facet, perhaps the one who more to defensive level, is that Roberto has recovered 20 balloons less than Alves (remain three parties)… but has lost 84 less than the Brazilian, more aventurado in attack.

It is evident, then , that Roberto has fulfilled with grow in a position that is not his. It has suffered in front of rivals of entity, but his general line leaves him in very good note. And it is that the Camp Nou has not missed to Dani Alves.
