The FC Barcelona prepares to give him start to the tuned of his players, but Xavi Hernández only will be able to have his complete staff some days before the first party post-stop. The trainings in the club started the past 5 December, but will be the next week when the egarense have to his disposal to the majority of the footballers.

In this sense, several members of the first team will have a new opportunity of 'claim' in front of the eyes of his trainer. During the first stretch of this season, a series of footballers left a lot that wish, already was for having few opportunities or by a far performance to the expected. Such is the case of the Raphinha, Ferran Torres, Héctor Bellerín, Ansu Fati or Franck Kessie, pieces that Xavi needs that they take a step forward to help to the square in the 'tightened' calendar that is for coming.

Ferran Torres

The Valencian was a regulate for Luis Enrique during the step of the Spanish Selection in Qatar. However, and to the equal that the rest of the 'Red', his performance was of more to less and left in evidence his fault of confidence. In spite of seeing well in the collective work and no escatimar efforts in helping to the team and does not achieve to be differential and contribute from the statistics. With Lewandowski sanctioned, surely will be important for Xavi.


It landed of foot in the City Condal and aimed to be 'indisputable' in the Barcelona square. Nevertheless, the irregularity has characterised his first months dressing the Barcelona T-shirt. Although it is true that has been more headline that acting, the feeling is that the Brazilian does not finish to convince to Xavi Hernández. In Qatar did not have a participation 'brilliant' in spite of being headline in four of the five parties of Brazil, and now is forced to 'claim' in his turn to Barcelona.

Franck Kessié

It arrived to the Spotify Camp Nou to contribute a different profile to the half of the field, but to the costamarfileño is costing him join up in demasía to the new diagram of his team. After happening the last seasons in the AC Milan, the new system has delayed his adaptation. Now, after recovering totally of his injury, the footballer will look for to convince to his trainer with his physical qualities and his capacity to surrender of big way in ámbas areas.

Ansu Fati

Very punished by the constant injuries of knee in the last years, the bisauguineano does not achieve to recover the version that filled of illusion to all the barcelonismo. Lacking of confidence, without 'spark' and without power in the driving and started, Ansu does not attain to reach the level that presented him like one of the greater irruptions of the decade in the City Condal. Now, and after managing without 'penalty neither glory' by Qatar, will look for to win a place in the team. The next months will be keys.

Héctor Bellerín

The Catalan incorporated to the Barcelona rows on the 'horn' during the past market estival. Nevertheless, his provision have not convinced in Can Barça. It signed agreement by a year and expected to win the extension of the same on the terrain of game, but his problem with the injuries and the 'toneless' performance showed every time qur had an opportunity on the lawn invite to think that will abandon the club once expire his bond. In the meantime, it will work to win a place in the square in the months for coming.
