Junior Firpo goes to fulfil to finals of August 23 years and is considered one of the projects of left sides more interesting of LaLiga and probably also of Europe. This is one of the reasons by which the FC Barcelona has decided to incorporate him to his rows this summer.

The ex carrilero left-handed of the Real Betis completed a big past season and had stretches of very good football. His exhibition in the Camp Nou in front of the own Barça is one of the most remembered of the course and went also one of the reasons by which Ernesto Valverde was so interested in doing with his services.

The Hispanic-dominican always has stood out by his physicist and his power. It trains hard and is from the physicist where marks the difference when it adds to the attack. In career is very difficult to stop him and therefore his margin of improvement is so big. But if it has grown so much in so little time in LaLiga is because there was a person in the Betis that incidió in that it worked more his technical section.

Sportive world affirms that José Juan Romero, ex technician of the filial bético and ex trainer of Junior, convinced to Quique Setién so that the side trained more his technician. This was in the second half of the past season and the growth of Junior was very evident. The plan for Junior was to strengthen him physically, but from this moment changed completely and became much more technical and futbolístico.

Junior had also a change of mentality and with this new training improved a lot in his centres to the area. That was one of the sections that more trained in this last stretch of course and in the Barcelona could be of big utility his left-handed when it wins background line. Leo Messi could take advantage of of his speed and of his pass backwards, as it does with Jordi Alba in the already mythical played between both.

A spare of luxury for Alba

By 18 millions and other 12 in variables, the ex verdiblanco is a reinforcement of luxury for the plantel of Ernesto Valverde. Other similar sides to him have cost much more (Ferland Mendy to the Real Madrid, for example) and the Barça has to be very satisfied by the operation. Alba will have an acting of luxury that aims to title in a pair of years if his progression follows as until the moment.
