FC Barcelona starts LaLiga in a week, and Ernesto Valverde will have to make decisions about the players he wants to call. The manager's list has turned into an authentic puzzle, because he will have to leave some stars out of the match
It does some weeks that started the pre-season, but after turn them and the preparation of the course, the FC Barcelona premières his official calendar in a week. In spite of the constant disputes between LaLiga and the Federation, the Catalans already know that his visit to Saint Mamés will take place the Friday 16 August (21:00 peninsular schedule Spanish), and already explain the days for an appointment surrounded of subjects very important.
A question that seems simple but will not be it neither of far is the first announcement, that has turned into a puzzle difficult to resolve. It is evident that Ernesto Valverde has a blessed problem with all the footballers of quality that coexist in the changing room, but will be necessary an effort in the management of the staff to attain that all this prime matter can activate in the fight by the titles, and that to the group do not consummate it the tensions and the desmotivación of those that play less or find in the wheel of the rotations.
The team explains for the time being with 23 players, but in the bench only fit 18 and it will be necessary descartar to five. In the last times this has been a relatively simple proof, because further of lesionados and sanctioned, always there have been some links more debiles in the chain. For putting an example, to anybody surprised him when Thomas Vermaelen went to the terracing, and although escociera, was intelligible that also did it Malcom with the leading brilliants that possess the culés.
But now, there is few or practically any that have the poster of prescindibles, means it that each day there will be some stars that will remain without options to contest at least a minute, and this without taking into account that from time to time it will be necessary to look for opportunities to start with to film to the youngsters of the filial, that in these circumstances hardly will appear -with more justification that never- in the Glass of Rey or in LaLiga when it was resolved.
It choose to the one who choose, the list of Valverde goes to have meaning and a lot of interpretations, something with what will touch to have care. Be was does not have because give to that the trainer has put him the cross to one of his pupilos, since they exist a lot of conditionings to the hour to take decisions. The technician will have to multiply to give explanations and his footballers to understand them, because at the end what explains is that the community follow the winning series.
The possible 'excuses' for the first descartes of the Barça
Although in some weeks the election will be even more difficult, for the moment there is some 'excuses' that facilitate the election of Valverde. Explaining that they travel two goalkeepers, in defence there are players with a lower adaptation, and the logical would be that I Hammered them, Umtiti, Lenglet, Semedo and Jordi Alba were above Wagué, Todibo and Junior Firpo, that still have to pulir his candidatures. Of the same form, in the medullary could fall Coutinho and Arturo Vidal, still lacking of rhythm, or Rafinha, that could leave to Valencia prompt. In the forward there is an only doubt, and is if Leo Messi will be to 100% or will opt for reserving him after the injury that left him out of turns it American.
