He has been at FC Barcelona for six months, but he is already beginning to leave his mark: Jules Koundé has become an indispensable resource in Xavi Hernández's plans this season
The irruption of Jules Koundé in the FC Barcelona is being brutal. It arrived recently more than six months, from the Seville at a rate of 50 million euros, and has showed an impressive capacity of adaptation to start with to shine with the picture of the City Condal, until turning into a player insistituible that already marks the difference.
Against the Villarreal went back to leave a big party, splitting like right side and supporting in the coverages to Ronald Araújo, with the one who has created a society infalible in the defensive saga. Koundé Is increasingly comfortable in this position, although in different oprtunidades has manifested that where more likes him play is in the axis of the defence.
To date, it has contested ten parties in the right-handed band of the Barcelona and the statistics begin to be more than positive, because in eight parties the Barça did not fit goals, and in other two received three. One of them, curiously, annotated it he in own door. The others, arrived in the derrrota against the Bayern of Munich in the phase of groups of the Champions League (2-0).
The others parties (Valladolid, Seville, Elche, Athletic, Real Sociedad, Girona, again Seville and Villarreal), the Barça kept his fence in zero. Koundé Has been one of the protagonists, because it has played it practically everything, with special quotation in this 2023 in which it has been insustituible for Xavi Hernández.
The solidest defence of LaLiga
The walk of the Barça in LaLiga is being perfect, especially by the big defensive solidity that is showing the team. Up to now, in 21 days contested, the Barcelona only have fit seven goals (one against the Real Sociedad, Osasuna, Betis and Espanyol) and other three in the visit to Santiago Bernabéu by the Classical against the Real Madrid.
