Calendar of FC Barcelona

Although fortunately it could continue playing some minutes more, Gerard Hammered starred the fright of the night against the Leganés. It ran the minute 56 of game when the central Catalan suffered a strong entrance of a contrary player, Assalé, that nailed him the swearwords in the tibia. The entrance could have broken the shin pad, since the images of the transmission showed how sangraba the wound of the Catalan defender.

It remained some minutes tended on the lawn, hurting, and afterwards went out to the band to be attended by the doctors of the Barça, that him vendaron as it is had to. It decided to test and it continued playing some minutes more, until the 72, when Quique Setién took the decision to substitute him by Samuel Umtiti. It does not foresee that I Hammered it suffer any grave injury, and probably everything will remain in a contusión.

However, it is possible that do not arrive in plenitud of physical conditions to play next Friday against the Seville, in the Sánchez Pizjuán. This would be a big problem, since Samuel Umtiti will be sanctioned by accumulation of cards, and if I Hammered is not to 100% the mate of saga of Lenglet will have to be Ronald Araújo, still am missing of experience in big parties in spite of the good feelings that transmits.

As we say, in any case, the most likely is that I Hammered do not have problems to play the commitment in the Nervión. This yes, the fright goes back to leave clear that the FC Barcelona has to give rest progressively to the Catalan player in the next parties, as long as it want that it arrive 'whole' to the decisive stretch of the season.

Gerard Hammered, very important for the Barça

No in vain I Hammered it is the player of field with more minutes accumulated in the present campaign, only surpassed by the goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen. The central great 2.382 minutes in the 27 parties that has contested of the 29 possible. So only it lost two, owing to accumulation of yellow cardboards, since it adds 11 in what we carry of course.

An indisputable pillar for Quique Setién, to the that will have to take care if it wants that it follow offering the excelso performance showed up to now. Ronald Araújo, in this sense, will follow receiving opportunities in the weeks to come... And it goes back to remain patent the need of fichar this summer to another young head office and of guarantees, with the aim to ensure the present and future in the defensive axis culé.
