Xavi Hernández has 'lost' to three defenders for the next weeks: Jules Koundé, Héctor Bellerín and Ronald Araújo that aims to be a good time in the infirmary after going through the operating theatre.

Although has the alternative of Sergi Roberto (recovered of his annoyances, but with hardly shooting), to reconvert to Eric García to central as it already did the past course or change to a system of three head offices, Xavi wants to cover the backs and have alternatives in the bench, reason by which has 'fichado' to Marc Casadó, of the Barça Atlètic, so that it work in dynamics of the first team thinking in the next clashes.

In fact, in the first party of pre-season against the Olot, played in this position during the second half of the party.

In front of a big opportunity

It is a footballer that likes a lot to Xavi Hernández, reason by which carried it to him to turns it of pre-season in United States.
