In the Benfica has not contested neither a minute since he arrived, and the possibilities to see him in action with the Portuguese club of face to the second half of the season are scarce
The cession of the player of guyanese origin Jean-Clair Todibo, to the Portuguese club Benfica, saw like a new opportunity to give a jump in his professional career, but has turned into a hell. To the beginning had annoyances in the sinew of Achilles, what has not allowed him exercise to the maximum with his mates afterwards of three months of his arrival.
By his part, the experienced Jorge Jesus does not have him the necessary confidence to have he in the Benfica. In a statement left to see between lines that "Todibo does not have the physical conditions neither tactical", and that the club wanted to give back to the central Frenchman, but the Barça is not in conditions to renounce neither a cent of the two million euros of the cession.
The extensive recess of Gerard Hammered by an injury, in group with the annoyances that accumulate Araujo and Lenglet, could take like a good excuse so that the Catalan technician Ronald Koeman saw with good eyes repescarlo. But still like this the conditions of cession are clear and the Barça is not had to renounce to the cession.
Likewise, in the month of August Todibo gave positive by coronavirus, without still step the lawn of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper. They were around three weeks in that the guyanese could not return to the trainings until having the medical permission. While this occurred, Koeman arrived to Barcelona to take the control of the centre of Barcelona operations.
The technician of the Catalan club sustained meetings with Leo Messi and Luis Suárez to take decisions, between them leave clear that did not have Jean-Clair. The club wanted that it was in shape of traspaso to do box, but to the central did not like him the offers that arrived of the Premier League (Fulham) and everything complicated quickly.
A year 2020 for the forget
In spite of being a player with a very long career by in front, will not be him easy to Todibo forget a 2020 that does not leave him a positive balance of the all at least from the futbolístico. His exit meant, at least in the paper, a played sung for the arrival of Eric García, something that finally neither finished happening, because it did not arrive to an economic agreement in his club, the Manchester City.
Given the circumstances that went, his cession to the Portuguese picture of Jorge Mendes supposed the entry of two million euros to the Catalan group, as well as an opportunity for orn player that with utmost difficulty had been able to show his value in the FC Barcelona and that, said was in passing, truncated it the pandemia in front of what seemed an imminent evolution in the Schalke 04.
