The signing of Jules Koundé during the market veraniego has been one of the most hit by the new sportive direction. The French recaló in the club in return of 50 million euros, a figure that remains short by the big season that is concretising on the lawn of the Spotify Camp Nou. To his 24 years, is a referent of present and future that has adapted to perfection to the philosophy of Barcelona game.

Xavi Hernández is loved with his qualities and characteristic, since it can work in different positions of the field leaving always good feelings. Although it is true that his main role since salio of the Burdeos is the one of head office, the true is that the technician has used him like marker by the right side in different defensive diagrams.

The side has been the feeble link of the Barça during the course due to the fact that Héctor Bellerín has not fulfilled the expectations and has been Sergi Roberto the 'covered' when the trainer needs him by band. However, Koundé has been the 'ace under the sleeve' in the parties of greater importance and his good association with Ousmane Dembélé in the desborde offensive have turned him into a fixed in the alignments.

This also is due to that Ronald Araújo and Andreas Christensen are two absolute guarantees in the axis of the saga, what allows to the egarense can rotar to his pieces deep down. In fact, the Frenchman also has accompanied to the Uruguayan in the central pair and also to the Danish, being the 'charrúa' the one who occupy the right side.

His numbers

Of all they, only has been acting in front of the Cádiz by the local tournament and in front of the AD Ceuta in Glass of Rey. It has delivered four assistances and has kept on the terrain of game by 1431' minutes, being one of the indisputable footballers of the staff.
