Ronald Koeman seems to have decided that it does not want that Riqui Puig​ form part of the first staff of the FC Barcelona this season. The Dutch has seen to the of Matadepera during all the pre-season and in the friendly, and has arrived to the conclusion that it does not have place in his new Barça. The news has pillado to all the world by surprise, even to the own player, that did not expect this.

It seems that the Dutch is not convinced with what can contribute the Catalan in the centre of the field and prefers that it go out so that have the minutes that does not go to give him he. This movement could do that the trainer of Zaandam explain more with other players that were called to be less important that the canterano. Carles Aleñá, Pedri and Francisco Trincao could win weight in the rotation of the Dutch.

Riqui Puig, with talent to be still in the Barça

In the case of the Canarian, has shined in pre-season and has been of the best news of the Barça. His talent is indisputable and is what has enamoured to Koeman, that has used him enough. The mediapunta will be au zone of action and everything aims that it could be the big alternative for Philippe Coutinho, that could split of start by in front of the double pivote. The ex of The Palms adapts perfectly to this position and seems that it has gone in him more by the eyes to Ronald that Riqui.

Another of the footballers that could have more minutes if Puig goes is Aleñá, that went back this summer of his cession to the Betis. The one of Mataró is an interior with route that could adapt better to the double pivote that the one of Matadepera, at least as it thinks the technician. Physically it is stronger and is more fact, and besides his conditions, in principle, adapt better to the place of mediocentro pure like alternative to Sergio Busquets, Frenkie of Jong and Miralem Pjanic.

On the other hand, although Trincao aims to the right extreme to take advantage of his dribbling and speed, also could have options in the mediapunta. Without Riqui, the Portuguese, that already has played here in the Sporting of Knickers, could be an alternative to Coutinho, Pedri and even Leo Messi, that also could split from here. The luso has stood out in pre-season, has showed his quality and desborde and will remain in the first team.

The 4-2-3-1 of Koeman prejudices to Riqui

Riqui Keeps on being one of the greater young talents that there is in the Barcelona, but his physicist still leaves doubts. Besides, for the 4-2-3-1 of Koeman does not fit too well, since he is an interior of manual and does not square for the double pivote. Playing by in front yes would have hollow and could adapt, but the trainer barcelonista thinks that other footballers give him more than him in this zone of the terrain of game.
