Ronald Koeman didn't want to risk with the physical state of one of his defenders, Óscar Mingueza, and substituted him in the second half because of some muscular annoyances
Nowadays, Mingueza is central of the first team. And we do not say it we, but Ronald Koeman. The Dutch technician, that elogió to the young defender of the filial before and after the party in front of the Real Sociedad, has full confidence deposited in him in spite of being conscious that it still has to follow progressing and puliendo details, logical thing to his 21 years.
The case is that Mingueza was to title this Wednesday in the Camp Nou, and surrendered wonderfully forming couple with Ronald Araújo in front of the current colíder of LaLiga Santander 2020-21. The dorsal '28' of the Barça was attentive to all launch them of the game, very hit in the theft of balloon, in the coverages, in the aerial game and without errors neither in the exit of balloon, one of his big virtues.
It played with a tranquility and improper fineness for somebody that carries so few parties with the first team, and showed fully integrated in the gear culé, one of these pieces that fit to perfection from the beginning. Only it had a grave error, in the second time, when it was soft in the conflict by a balloon and allowed a contragolpe of the Real that had to save between Ter Stegen and Pedri, this last carrying a golpetazo against the stick.
Further of this played punctual, the party of Mingueza was perfect. At least, all the minutes that played. Because the canterano could not finalise the meeting by fault of some muscular annoyances, that to fault of medical proofs aim to one overloads in the twins. It does not seem a grave injury, but a 'prick' that suffered during a launch of the game, and of the that warned to the zone of bench not to aggravate it more.
Mingueza, with a brilliant future
Mingueza Is conscious that for the time being it is useful in this Barça, and does not want that an inopportune injury prevent him enjoy of more opportunities in the next appointments of the first team. Conscious that they had spares in the bench, did not doubt in warning to Koeman and this entered in the field to Lenglet, to the one who had given rest, by the renqueante but satisfied Mingueza. Aim fulfilled, victory and another dose 'cum laude' of experience.
If it continues accumulating participations so successful like the one of this Wednesday, Mingueza will have spare ballots to remain in the first team during what subtracts of season 2020-21. And, it is possible, also sign an agreement that link him definitively to the first team of face to the next campaigns. To his 21 years, has a brilliant future that has to take advantage of.
