Gavi is being a perfect example that age has nothing to do with the personality and 'seniority' that a player can show on the pitch. The Barça player shone with Spain once again
No by at all Luis Enrique commented in press conference that Gavi is a "beast parda". The midfield player, of 17 years, has turned into a fixed in the Spanish selection, as it is it in the FC Barcelona and does not weigh him the poster that it is his first year in the football of elite. His personality and capacity to be 'mandón' and force that all the balloons go through his boots is being the big novelty of a Spain that tight with very little, but that has found a player that can be diferenciador from the medullary.
Gavi Was, probably, the most stood out footballer of 'The Red' against Sweden, in a very dense party of the ones of Luis Enrique in which the doubts were greater that the certainties. His statistical are rompedoras and speak of a player that wants to step strong in the Spanish football and to the that does not matter him, in no case, that was the more 'boy' of his changing room (and probably of the field, to be honest). His registers and staged follow giving that speak and in the decisive duel against the Swedish did not happen careless.
92% of tarpaulin in the pass, five dribblings completed of eight tried, and ten of fifteen duels won summary the party of Gavi in The Cartuja, the one who went back to show that it does not hide in the field and that goes to the 'war' every time that it was necessary. It did not scare in front of Ekdal, neither in front of Olsson. It went back to be figure and justifies his announcements (and titularities) as better knows in the field.
His performance did not happen unobserved, in no case, and had his reward. It finished the party melted and Luis Enrique decided to substitute him in the minute 89 and received a surprise deserved. The Cartuja joined for corear a "Gavi, Gavi" that for him has been historical. Has a lot of route still and still too much for showing, to be fair, but his projection is increasingly positive and has showed that it wants to assume the challenge. It can go to Catar with 18 years and every time seems more logical that like this was.
Gavi, a 'break' for the Barça
Although it is true that in the Spanish selection is winning whole to be one of the most stood out players, in the FC Barcelona the histora is exactly equal. In pre-season impressed to all the technical body of Ronald Koeman and the Dutch decided to turn it into a 'fixed' in the announcements of the first team. Little by little it turned into headline and now will be difficult that can go back to the bench, although it will be necessary to see which are the plans of the new Barcelona trainer, Xavi Hernández.
In the middle of his explosion and 'experience' showed with Spain, from Can Barça work for the extension of his agreement. Gavi Will not be a juvenile more, but one of the key pieces of the Barcelona group in his way of 'reconstruction'. From the Camp Nou do not want surprises regarding the future of one of the players that aims to be one of the stars of the future, but also a differential player in the actuality.
