Sergi Palencia will be one of the five players of the filial that will do pre-season with the first team beside Ortolà, Vitinho, Marlon and Cucurella. Waiting for renewing his agreement -expires the next course-, the right side wants to show him this summer to Ernesto Valverde that it can have a gap in the first staff.
Palencia has showed to have the necessary aptitudes to occupy the right lane, although it has not had any opportunity in the first team. Neither so at least when there was not lateral healthy rights or were sanctioned. In the filial always has surrendered to big level and was a fundamental player for Gerard López. To his 21 years deserves a bet in firm.
It surprises that up to now there have not been minutes for him. Because from the year 2012 -with the juvenile B- has surrendered to a level more than remarkable. Has arrival, good shot, centres well and backwards is used to to be very positioned not to lose the back -although sometimes the emotion to go up him pilla 'nude' backwards-.
It measures 1,68m and was one of the artífices of that Youth Champions League that won the juvenile of the Barça in 2014. Those that know him well know that his dream is to triumph in the Camp Nou and that works hard for this. Now it will have the opportunity to show him to the new technician culé that it can go in in his quinielas when it creates it timely.
Oriol Domènech wrote of him in 2013 in "Sportive World" that has reasonable similarities with the already withdrawn Philippe Lahm. "A side that stands out in defence by his placing and in attack by his capacity to associate and his good criterion to choose his offensive adventures", defines him.
Give opportunity to the people of house
It does some days explained it Sergi Roberto. "I think that the Barça has to have always to the best, but also needs give minutes to the people of the house". And seeing that the signing of Héctor Bellerín can turn into an impossible dream -until has explained this Wednesday that the Barça there would be it descartado-, would be well not spending millions in a crazy way in unknown players and bet by people of the house. And if it goes out bad? At least you will have risked with a player that have formed you.
Palencia is a fantastic option. At least, try it. Give him minutes in parties of less requirement and little by little go curtiéndole. It is an alike case to the of Cucurella, already renewed and that paints of wonder for the left lane. Surely his height is a hándicap for parties of Champions, but anybody asks that it was still a first sword. Little by little but with convencimiento. Palencia has the level.
