Three players that still had not had minutes in pre-season, Arthur, Arturo Vidal and Coutinho, had them against Napoli this Saturday. Messi is the only that has not been able to participate
They were four the players that had not contested still any minute in the pre-season 2019, and finally Leo Messi has remained only in this statistics. Ernesto Valverde put in the field in front of the Napoli to Coutinho, Arthur and Arturo Vidal in the second time, allowing so they had of some minutes of shooting after having been the last players in arriving of his holidays, together with Luis Suárez and Leo Messi.
His participation in the Glass America 2019 caused that they were the last in arriving of his holidays, and the imminent beginning of LaLiga Santander 2019-20 has prevented that they can have of more opportunities to recover the competitive rhythm. Already it does a week that train beside the rest of his mates and will be difficult that have minutes in front of the Athletic, but in question of few days will be in plenitud of conditions.
Two of them, Arturo Vidal and Coutinho, find in the list of players transferibles and no descarta that the FC Barcelona can traspasarles if they arrive good offers in the market of signings, or for fraguar the complicated arrival of Neymar Jr. The Barça could use them like part of a business with the PSG that, to day of today, is very far.
What is clear is that, if they remain in the staff, so much Coutinho like Arturo Vidal will have it very difficult to play with regularity. Messi, Griezmann, Luis Suárez and Dembélé are by in front of the Brazilian, whereas the Chilean midfield player will have to lidiar with the competition of Busquets, Rakitic, Arthur, Frenkie of Jong, Sergi Roberto, Carles Aleñá and Rafinha, that says prompt.
The Barça, with 'overbooking' of half field upwards
True is that Rafinha and Rakitic also have options to go out, like the own Arturo Vidal, but for the time being all are integral of the staff of the FC Barcelona and, therefore, competitors by the minutes that can concede them the trainer. "Coutinho, Arthur and Arturo Vidal will have to put in shape and struggle by his place", commented the 'Txingurri' in press conference.
It does not be missing him reason, as long as the three finish remaining in the team. If they do it, the FC Barcelona will have of a full staff of alternatives, very deep and of a tremenda quality in all the lines. The hándicap, this yes, will be to manage the egos when the big players with fewer minutes begin to put bad expensive. Here it is where will go in the work of Valverde and his 'staff'.
