During the last seasons, after the course of Dani Alves of the FC Barcelona​, Sergi Roberto has seen forced to play like right side, a position in which it had not played in the inferior categories but to which adapted well, with professionalism and giving firm guarantees with his performance.

Nevertheless, this next season, Ernesto Valverde will have two right sides pure: Nélson Semedo, of the that expects that it assault the titularity definitively, and the youngster Moussa Wagué, that carries time despuntando in the filial and in the Senegalese selection. Thus, Sergi Roberto will be able to go back to the centre of the field, although it will not leave to be the big joker of the team, being able to occupy until four positions to full performance.

Right side

His quality, his physicist and his tactical discipline allow him the fact to be able to occupy the right side in spite of not being too fast. It is the position that more has occupied in the last seasons and gives virtues to the team so much in defence as in his incorporations in attack. The only but in this position is that it suffers in front of fast extremes and with desborde.


As we have commented, it is a footballer very aseado and disciplined tácticamente, something that allows him read well the played to recover balloons. Besides, has quality to help in the exit of the balloon and physicist to be warrior in the medullary. It will be able to be alternative to Sergio Busquets and, in fact, the one of mediocentro can that it was the ideal position for the one of Reus.


The physicist of fondista combined with the capacity to give fluidity to the game are good attributes so that Sergi Roberto can be a good option like interior. Besides it offers a lot of defensive work, what does that it was a complete footballer to play of interior, since it covers a lot of field. His problem is that it does not have the same arrival to the area that some of his mates.

Right extreme

Maybe it was the oddest position for Sergi Roberto, but in some occasions has showed that it can be an effective player in the band. Especially because it is a player balanced, that fulfils in all the facets and is an option that likes to Ernesto Valverde when it wants to contain attacks by the side. It will be little usual to see him here but, to defend a result, can be a good alternative.
