The injury that suffered Jordi Alba in front of Seville, that besides had it moved away of the terrains of game until the Classical past in front of the Real Madrid, did that Ronald Koeman had to question if it used to Sergiño Dest, although his original profile is the right, or if it gave him the opportunity to the irregular Junior Firpo, the one who also was recovering of an ailment, to occupy the square of the ex Gimnastic of Tarragona. At the end, both footballers had his quota of time in the left side of the defence, but is difficult not imagining that the replacement of Alba could have had other names like options.

And, for more intensity when thinking on this idea, fits recalcar that the alternatives to left side that could have had the Barcelona had formed part of the staff without cost any, since all catered of the quarry. It treats of the youngsters Marc Cucurella, Juan Miranda and Alejandro Grimaldo, those who no longer find in the club due to the fact that two of them were sold and one finds yielded.

The first in leaving was Grimaldo, the one who was sold to the Benfica in January of 2016 in return of so alone 2,1 million euros and, from that then, has gone back one of the figures of the Portuguese group. During the last four years, the canterano Barcelona has contested 165 parties, in which it has marked 12 goals and has delivered 32 assistances, according to the portal Transfermarkt.

Later, Cucurella left the Catalan ship, in pricipio to face cessions to the Eibar and to the Getafe, but, after his stood out performance in the Madrilenian picture, the same speeded up the purchase of the born footballer in Alella, the one who is one of the maximum figures of the picture "azulón". Regarding Miranda, afterwards of a pasantía little successful by the Schalke 04, finds to loan in the Betis, where neither is having a lot of opportunities.

 

Three examples of the discredit to La Masia

Miranda, Grimaldo and Cucurella are alone three of the a lot of cases of players from the quarry of the Barcelona, that have not had too many opportunities in the first team and that, therefore, had to abandon his dream to be headlines in the Barcelona picture to be able to have regularity. The example of more renown is, definitely, Thiago Alcántara, the one who went to the Bayern Munich in 2013 and at present plays in the Liverpool of Jurgen Klopp.

It is very interesting to think in what would be of the Barcelona, so much economic like deportivamente speaking, if this type of things did not occur with so much frequency and the canteranos had more opportunities, as it happened does years when Puyol, Iniesta, Xavi and the same Messi won , thanks to the chances that had and to his talent, the titularity in the first team. The rest of the sucedido while these footballers went through the club, is history.
