Of face to this stop of selections of November, Luis Enrique was faithful to his ideas of not wanting to have Jordi Alba in his list for the parties against the selections of Low Countries (played this Wednesday with 1-1 final), Switzerland (Basilea, the Saturday 14) and Germany (the Tuesday 17, in Seville). A decision that can understand, partly, by the big quality of the two elected: José Luis Gayá (Valencia) and Sergio Reguilón (Tottenham).

However, the valencianista has lesionado, by what Luis Enrique needed to have another left side and everything aimed that it could throw of Jordi Alba. Incomprensiblemente, the Getafe has announced that has been Marc Cucurella the elected to substitute to José Luis Gayà, although it does practically three seasons that the Catalan acts like left side.

Marc Cucurella increased his performance when playing like left interior in the Eibar and is thus that, in the Getafe, José Bordalás also bets by him in positions advanced. However, Luis Enrique has bet pro he like substitute for the left side leaving again to Jordi Alba was. A decision that is hardly intelligible if only we encircle us to sportive subjects.

In the present season, Jordi Alba is one of the mainstays of the team of Ronald Koeman and, in spite of that the past season was toneless, in this has gone up a lot the level. There are not doubts that José Luis Gayá, Sergio Reguilón and Marc Cucurella deserve to be in the selection. The question is: they deserve It more than the Barcelona if only we fix us in his sportive performance? It costs to think that was like this...

Bad relation of Luis Enrique with Jordi Alba?

It is possible that the reason by which Luis Enrique is so contrary to summon to Jordi Alba was extradeportivo. It is necessary to remember that the relation between both began to be complicated in the final stretch of the last season of the technician in the bench of the FC Barcelona. The Asturian changed the system of game happening to play with a 3-4-3 to add a midfield player more without subtracting a forward, and the one of L'Hospitalet was the big sacrificed.

The side of the FC Barcelona left to fall in several occasions his unrest by not explaining for Luis Enrique in this period (in spite of that it was intocable in the selection) and, when Ernesto Valverde substituted to the Asturian, was conclusive: "it Is clear that now will go me better". Luis enrique put headed by the selection and Jordi Alba began to reduce his leadership, since only it went in in the announcements of intermittent form. Now, it seems to have disappeared completely of the plans of the seleccionador.
