Something that means that it does not fear in giving minutes to the youngsters, and in sight is that Pedri, Sergiño Dest or Ansu Fati -this last after his injury- are important players.

Neither it is necessary to despise the leadership of other footballers like Ronald Araújo or Francisco Trincao, whose apparitions have been less constant that in the previous cases but also have been present. Besides, the filial is an important option and Ronald Koeman already medita seriously have Konrad de la Fuente -that plays in the same position of Ansu Fati and has a big potential- or Alejandro Baldé, left side of big projection that will go up to the first team if it goes Junior Firpo.
