Calendar of FC Barcelona

Nélson Semedo Has left of the FC Barcelona three years after his arrival without having achieved triumph as Barcelona. The Portuguese has finished surrendering and has accepted the offer of a Wolverhampton in which it will not have the pressure that has in Can Barça. The culés will receive 30 million euros and other 10 in variables by the right side, by what will recover his investment.

The exit of the ex of the Benfica is not too surprising by his performance and by the rumours that have planted him far of the Camp Nou from the past course. The past summer said that the luso wanted to earn much more and that was not happy with his minutes, but the club did not want to sell him and remained . This course, Sergi Roberto went back to be more important that he for Ernesto Valverde, although with Quique Setién obtained prominence and settled in the eleven initial.

Nélson Semedo Already is player of the Wolverhampton

But the course of the santanderino and the arrival of Ronald Koeman have finished for moving away to Semedo of the Barcelona, since the Dutch has preferred to the of Reus during all the pre-season. The club, by his side, needed to do box, by what has opted for accepting the proposal of the Wolves and bet by Roberto and by the side that arrive. Sergiño Dest, is the favourite and would be almost fichado, but Max Aarons is in the recámara like alternative.

The stage of the of Green Cape in the Barça has been full of altibajos since it arrived. It landed in the City Condal to be the replacement of Dani Alves, the best carrilero right of the history of the club and one of the best of the history of the football. This losa always was too weighed for the ex of the Benfica, that in any moment approached to the performance of the Brazilian. It arrived like an offensive side, very fast and that it could be decisive in the contrary area, but in the Camp Nou remained always half and never knew or could show it.

Sergi Roberto stole him leadership

Sergi Roberto stole him leadership in his first campaign and finished playing practically the same that he in the right-handed side of the defence. In his second season, Semedo would have to have taken a step forward and show that it was qualified to be indisputable, but did not go like this. It played more than Sergi in the side and was more important that in the course of his debut, but followed very far of the level that expected of him when it arrived. This same occurred him also this year happened, in which it began like titularísimo to the orders of Valverde and finish again alternating with the one of Reus.

With Setién had more leadership and left probably his best parties with the T-shirt of the Barça. It felt important and in several crashes left destellos of the footballer that aimed to be when it played in the Benfica. It took advantage of his tremenda speed to go up with danger, with balloon had more tranquility to play, in defence saw him something better and showed that technically it was much more player of what had showed to be to date.

The problem is that this improvement remained in at all when the day of the truth, the one of the Bayern of Munich, finish in the photo of the golazo of Kimmich after the jugadón of Alphonso Davies. The Canadian portrayed to Semedo in which it already can say that it was his last party with the T-shirt of the Barcelona. A sad farewell for a footballer with some spectacular conditions to play of side, but with an alarming fault of intelligence, character and football in the widest sense of the word.
