Ronald Koeman is not very fond of rotations and is showing that he only trusts 15 or 16 players on his squad. There are several footballers with whom he does not have and to whom he is not giving almost minutes
Ronald Koeman is doing a remarkable work in the FC Barcelona from his arrival. The Dutch, in spite of his defeats against Getafe and Real Madrid, and his tie in front of the Seville, is transforming to the Barça in a modern team, physicist and mobile. These changes require time, patience and a lot of work, by what the results will arrive little by little. The meeting in front of the Juventus of Turín was a sample of which can be the final result if the Dutch follows as up to now.
The one of Zaandam has arrived stepping strong with his ideas and with a system of distinct game to the classical 4-3-3. The Barcelona plays now with a 4-2-3-1 that for the míster is immovable, something that on a long-term basis could be very positive. Besides, the trainer barcelonista is using a short rotation in which it has not explained usually with more than 16 or 17 players, excluding to the lesionados.
Removing to Net, that up to now has been headline by the injury of Marc-André ter Stegen, Koeman has used specifically a total of 16 footballers with assiduity. The ex seleccionador of Holland, therefore, has excluded to four culés of his rotation type. It treats of Junior Firpo, Carles Aleñá, Riqui Puig and Marti Braithwaite. Of them, the only that has surpassed the 15 minutes is the left-handed side, that played 28 against the Ferencvaros and one against the Juve.
Nevertheless, in spite of his 29 minutes, Junior is to day of today the acting of Sergiño Dest, that has erigido in the main alternative to Jordi Alba in the left. It seems that if it is missing the Catalan, Sergi Roberto will play in the right and the North American in the left-handed side, something that speaks a lot of the little confidence that has Ronald in the Hispanic-dominican.
But if the technician trusts little in Firpo, less trusts Aleñá and in Riqui. The one of Mataró not even has debuted this course and does not seem that it go to do it próximamente. By his part, the one of Matadepera only contested three minutes in front of the Getafe, and not even has gone in in the announcement for the crash of this Saturday in front of the Alavés. The feeling is that Koeman does not believe too much in the potential of both jewels and that this season go to explain very little unless there are injuries.
Braithwaite Only is a solution of emergency
Finally, Braithwaite has played three crashes, but between all hardly has added 13 minutes in total. It contested 10 against the Getafe, three in front of the Real Madrid and one in front of the Juve. In two of them went in by need, since his team went losing and he is the only '9' of the staff, whereas against the Italians did it like prize. It surprises that it do not explain more, since there is not another pure tip in the plantel, but the trainer blaugrana considers that the Danish alone is a solution of emergency.
