Ronald Araújo goes way to turn into one of the players disclosure of this season in LaLiga and can that in Europe. Pedri, that does not leave to grow party to party, has won the right to this nickname of "player disclosure", but the Uruguayan is not remaining backwards in the his. In the last party, against the Cornellà, the defender went back to be excelso and insuperable at all times.

The Uruguayan is giving the feeling to be a species of Raphael Varane when the French burst into in the Real Madrid with alone 19 years. Both with a height above the 1,90, very fast to the crossing, with a big vertical jump and with an improper maturity for his age. In this case, the Barcelona is perhaps something less fast, something stronger physically and is 2 years old more than this version of Varane, but the two are cut by the same pattern.

In front of the Cornellà in these dieciseisavos of final of Glass of Rey, Ronald went surely the best of the Barça. Although the covers carried them to him Ousmane Dembélé by his golazo and his verticality since it jumped to the field in the rest, went the charrúa the one who braked one and again the attempts of tackled of the Catalans. It was flawless to the crossing at all times, by high carried it to him everything, caused a penalti and did not allow that it went him any rival in the one against one

But the performance of the defender against the ones of the Baix Llobregat carries repeating already in a lot of parties since it is indisputable headline. In fact, of the last 10 meetings, to the de Rivera have not dribbled him in any occasion. But going even more there, fits to say that in all the crashes that has contested this course, that have been 15, only have him desbordado once against the Juventus of Turín.

In the one against one, Araújo seems insuperable for a lot of forwards in LaLiga and in Europe. His combination of height, strength, agility and speed in career do of him a central tremendously complicated to surpass so much to open field as in short distances. Besides, it combines these virtues with a lot of character, personality and coolness to the hour to choose when go in and when hold.

Araújo, allocated to be the relief of Hammered

Although it can be prompt to say it, everything indicates that the Barcelona has found at last to the successor of Gerard Hammered that they have looked for during so many years. Defensivamente, the Uruguayan is almost perfect, as it is showing, and the only in what for real it has to improve of face to the future is in his exit of balloon. His trip of ball in long is deficient and needs to work it to be able to become to what by conditions has to aspire, that is not another thing that to turn into one of the best head offices of the world.
