LaLiga Did not begin well for the FC Barcelona, that did not do a good party in the first day in which it had to visit Saint Mamés, a stage in which the Athletic Club is strong. Ernesto Valverde experienced in the eleven headline and formed the centre of the field with Frenkie of Jong, flamante signing, and the canteranos Sergi Roberto and Carles Aleñá.

In the first time, at all had gone like the Txingurri had planned and in the rest, east took a drastic decision: substitute to the midfield player of Mataró, to the that had arrived to abroncar by some played in the first time, by Ivan Rakitic. Aleñá Had paid the dishes broken of a first part to forget and, by what seems, Valverde follows punishing to the canterano by his bad performance.

From this first part of the party against the Athletic Club, Aleñá has not gone summoned in any of the four following meetings. It was not in the Camp Nou to play against the Real Betis, neither in Pamplona to do it against Osasuna, neither against Valencia the past weekend, neither much less in the bench of the Signal Iduna Park. Valverde Seems that it has put him the cross.

Thus, Aleñá will have to work a lot to go back to win the confidence of the trainer extremeño. The centre of the field of the FC Barcelona is extremely populated and the canterano will not have it easy to add minutes because of the presence of the ones of Jong, Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Arthur Melo or Sergi Roberto.

But we are speaking of a canterano with a lot of talent and projection that explains for Valverde since it went up to the first team. Players like Vidal or Rakitic have been in the ramp of exit, but Aleñá never has been an option to abandon to the club since so much the directive like the technical body trust he. At least, this left clear during the period of traspasos.

The centre of the field of Valverde

By the moment, Ernesto Valverde is trusting a lot in Frenkie of Jong and Arthur Melo, two 'peloteros' youngsters of which expects a lot so much in the present season as in the following. Sergio Busquets also has done with his place and expects that Ivan Rakitic and Sergi Roberto recover leadership. Arturo Vidal also explains, by what supposes another obstacle for Aleñá.
