During the past season, the defensive saga of the FC Barcelona was in pictures and Ronald Koeman had to 'fish' in the filial, achieving to two stars to reinforce to his team: Ronald Araújo and Òscar Mingueza. Both showed an impressive maturity during his first course with the first team and won the respect of his trainer and mates in the changing room. Now, they are to the door of his second year with the 'big'.

In the concrete case of the charrúa, the feelings have been very good because it arrived to 'replace' to Gerard Hammered in the terrain, no only in his position, but also in the leadership in front of his mates. In different opportunities saw him ordering to the rest of players in the played to unemployed balloon or arguing them in some concrete error. In definite, quickly won a space in the approach of the first team and of there that from the offices want to extend his stay in the Camp Nou further of the summer of 2022.

The central also keeps the illusion to follow adding opportunities under the orders of Ronald Koeman, by what has been working 'of more' during the summer to win, definitively, his battle with the physical problems. Already in the past course was low during a time by an injury in the left ankle. In concrete, in a party in front of the Betis, in February, suffered a sprain and from this moment dragged more problems, a factor that 'braked' his growth.

With his selection, Uruguay, also added a few physical problems that forced him to lose the dispute of the Glass America of this summer. It could not contest neither a minute and went with a bitter flavour on holiday. Nevertheless, it devoted the free time before returning to the City Condal to work in his physicist to leave backwards any ailment that can prejudice his performance in the season 2021-2022.

The fight by a place

The intention of Araújo is to litigate by a place. It will not be, in any case, a simple task because the Barça has 'overbooking' of head offices. For the moment, in addition to the Uruguayan, Koeman has the right-handed Gerard Hammered, Óscar Mingueza and Eric García, in addition to the left-handed Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti. A total of six head offices that, save to surprise, will be in the staff and will cause a headache for the trainer in his attempt to decide to the headlines.

It is true that 'Big Sam' could abandon the Camp Nou this summer, but up to now the club has not found him an exit (and paints to be impossible). Of cualquir form, the requirement will be maximum and all will have to 'litigate' to achieve a place like titling. It will remain to see how the Dutch delivers the minutes, but has face to be a situation complicated.
