The Twitter official of LaLiga has published this Monday a beautiful video vintage of the connection that had Pep Guardiola and Romario, two key members in the period of the Dream Team. The midfield player planted them perfect and the Brazilian defined like anybody
While they finish to plough the signings and the exits that the FC Barcelona plans -or pretend-, always is interesting to throw the sight backwards and rememorar unforgettable moments. Today we want to speak of this tandem that formed Guardiola and Romario in the Dream Team of Johan Cruyff. The Camp Nou enjoyed, during several years, of an almost perfect connection that in the contemporary period would attribute it to the same level that the one of Xavi and Messi.
The first memory, imborrable. 5 September 1993. The Real Sociedad visits the Camp Nou. The coliseo Barcelona was prepared to see the debut of Romario, a Brazilian forward of 27 years that came to mark 135 goals in 166 parties with the PSV Eindhoven. The "hype" was evident. And the best presagios fulfilled .
The Barça goleó 3-0 to the team donostiarra with three goals of Romario and three assistances feelings of Pep Guardiola, that then had 22 years and already began to direct the orchestra. The public hallucinated, logically. The eyes of the more than 70.000 people that were in the etemplo culé witnessed the start of something big.
Romario Did not go to defraud and finish this season with a total of 30 targets. A pichichi that besides could celebrate in style, winning LaLiga -thank you obviously to the famous penalti of Djukic in Tenerife-. The Brazilian only would be two seasons in Barcelona, marking 51 goals in 76 parties and leaving a common feeling: "Never anybody defined like him".
Romario Was a predatory infalible inside the area. Avispado, pícaro, lethal. It did not forgive almost any. And Pep was able to find spaces with an astounding ease. The first touch was a signal of identity of both. The rapidity. The imprevisibilidad. The football turned into art. An eternal luxury.
Do easy the difficult
Thanks to the video that has published the Twitter official of LaLiga this Monday can enjoy of some played that carried the inconfundible signature of Romario and Guardiola. By moments, as if it treated of an exact science or teledirigida. But it was not the Playstation neither imaginations, was the pure reality. And it was wonderful.
