The Barcelona technician is taking advantage of this pre-season to make proofs. One of them was the one of Sergi Roberto like defensive pivote, something that has left to Samper in the bench -until the last five minutes-. And it has fulfilled with note
It does weeks that comes commenting in the media the possibility to incorporate a player for the centre of the field. Even Robert Fernández explained does some days that had to be a polyvalent player that could surrender in the three positions of the medullary. Paulinho And Verratti are, a priori, the two candidates, but both seem far of the Barça to day of today.
This Wednesday, in front of the United, Valverde has tested with Sergi Roberto in the position of defensive pivote, doing of Busquets -what did Samper in front of the Juventus-. And the Catalan has happened the examination with very good note, showing his physical capacity, his tactical intelligence and a remarkable skill to take out the balloon with long drivings, no so much with passes in short.
An alternative that requires of a lot of technician and physical bottom, something that Roberto has between his aptitudes. The canterano has controlled the tempo of the crash and has turned off the fires that left, especially, Burn Turan by the left band. Reliable until it has been substituted in the minute 85 by physical annoyances.
Fichar To Verratti would be fantastic, but Paulinho chirriaría too much. By age, price and because it would need an adaptation. It is really better that Roberto? Sergi is polyvalent, knows the club, has the level and always surrenders. It would be odd to bring him a player that can cut him his progression.
Valverde Values his party
The Barcelona technician is taking advantage of this pre-season to make proofs. One of them was the one of Sergi Roberto like defensive pivote, something that has left to Samper in the bench -until the last five minutes-. And as we have commented previously, it has fulfilled. Also it believes it Valverde.
"He is an interior but today wanted to do a proof with him to see if it can help us like mediocentro. It has been well. It is not the same because he has tendency to drive but can help us in both positions. Had in mind when I arrived to test it in these two positions", aimed.
