FC Barcelona has started the season at a very low level and has already lost three games so far this year. Valverde is closing ranks before the problem and is only counting on players with a few players from the second culé unit
The beginning of season of the FC Barcelona is being nefasto in a lot of senses and there is few culés satisfied with the performance that is giving the team. With the defeat against the Raise, the Barça great already three in what it goes of course in League, in addition to a tie and another equalised in League of Champions.
There are a lot of factors that can explain the reason by which the blaugrana are not giving the level and one of them could be the management that is having Ernesto Valverde with his staff. The extremeño has closed rows in front of the crisis and is having 13-14 footballers of his plantel of usual way. The rest, or is not having minutes by technical decision, by injuries or by both things.
Ousmane Dembélé, Junior Firpo and Samuel Umtiti are the players of this list that is not playing as much as would owe by physical problems and by decision of the own technician. Jean-Clair Todibo, Carles Aleñá, Ivan Rakitic and Moussa Wagué are not explaining because the one of Viandar of the Edge is preferring to other men for the place.
In the case of Dembélé, the alone French has contested five parties in what it goes of campaign by fault of the injuries. Also it lost two crashes by his expulsion against the Seville. But the problem is that when it has been well, the 'Txingurri' has not given him so many opportunities as it fit to expect. Against the Raise, for example, did not have he and left him out of the list. It seems that it is by behind Ansu Fati and to the pair that Carles Pérez. The talent of the Frenchman is too big as so that Valverde him of a paper like this.
With which is not explaining and does not go to explain is with Ivan Rakitic, that only has played 9 parties and 233 minutes in what it goes of campaign. The Croat is the fifth midfield player of the team and only is by in front of Carles Aleñá. The extremeño has not given any explanation on what has been able to suceder so that the Balkan have happened to be indisputable to not explaining. It seems that it will go out in January if his situation does not change, although it is a waste have to somebody of his level permanently in the bench.
The less used by Valverde
The case of Todibo and Aleñá is similar, since it seems that Valverde does not finish to trust any of the two. The alone French has played by obligation when Lenglet or Hammered could not play and Umtiti was not available. The one of Mataró, on the other hand, only contested the first 45 minutes of the debut in Bilbao and since practically not even has gone in in the announcements. Everything aims that it will leave yielded so that his progression do not see truncated.
With Umtiti there is an exceptional case, since the Frenchman has happened lesionado good part of this beginning of campaign. When it has been, nevertheless, it has been the acting of Lenglet and Hammered and only has been able to contest a crash. If it recovers , it expects that the 'Txingurri' him of more opportunities to give him rest to the defenders titled and so that it can recover his best level.
Junior Firpo also has been lesionado several meetings, but when it has been available hardly has explained. Only it carries four meetings and extrañó a lot not to see him in Raise by Jordi Alba, that rested. It seems that Valverde trusts more in Semedo to leg changed that in the Hispanic-dominican. It is a signing of future, but would have to begin to have more minutes from already.
Finally, Moussa Wagué is unpublished and has not played neither an alone minute this season. The Senegalese would have to have been this course the acting of Semedo, but Valverde no fía of him and is opting for following betting by Sergi Roberto when the luso does not play. In the club trusted that this year the African gave a jump in his career, but without an alone opportunity is impossible that do it.
