Ernesto Valverde follows being in the eye of the hurricane when the things do not work, especially for taking some odd decisions that happen unobserved when the team wins, but no when sucede something resembled the of this Saturday. Some of them generate doubts and confusion to the barcelonismo.

It asks to Griezmann and does not find him place

Ernesto Valverde always prioritised the signing of Antoine Griezmann for his FC Barcelona and now is not able to give with the key to take out him his best performance. The Frenchman triumphed in the Athletic and with France like mediapunta, but the 'Txingurri' has condemned him to play like extreme, where feels less comfortable.

Valverde Knew in advance that his diagram is the 4-3-3 and that the Barça would pay 120 millions for fichar to a footballer that plays a position that in the system of the Barça does not exist. Leo Messi enjoys of total freedom to move by this zone of the field, by what Griezmann has to look for other positions to appear. In other words the Txingurri asked a Ferrari to visit the dunes of the desert.

It asks to Junior Firpo and does not put it

In summer, Valverde, disconforme with the paper of Juan Miranda in the left side, asked to a player to compete with Jordi Alba by the place and fichó to Junior Firpo, that fit in the profile that he wanted to. Against the Raise, the Txingurri wanted to rotar to Jordi Alba not to overload him of minutes and, in place to bet by the player that he same asked and that it is specialist in the position, decided to reconvert to Semedo to left-handed side and to Sergi Roberto to right-handed side. The result, nefasto.

His convicts

Valverde Already has showed in numerous occasions that can be a fearsome technician when it puts him the cross to somebody. Aleñá Did not convince him against the Athletic, cross and ostracism. Junior Firpo Is adapting , cross and ostracism. Rakitic... The of the Croat no longer has logical explanation, but cross and ostracism. Besides, the absence of Dembélé against the Raise, unless there is some episode of indiscipline no known, does not understand after going back of sanction. Cruz and ostracism?

The management of the youngsters

The management that is having Valverde with the youngsters also generates a lot of doubts. Had a month and half to Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez without playing and without leaving them go with the filial; it preferred to put to Samuel Umtiti without being to the one hundred by one hundred that to Todibo, that came to play well against the Seville; Aleñá and Wagué neither have minutes... And if we trace us back to the past campaign, asked the signing of two medianías like Murillo or Boateng before that give the alternative to players of the Masia.
