Sergi Roberto was one of the protagonists of the FC Barcelona-Athletic Club when reappearing of his injury more than two months afterwards. The one of Reus fell lesionado to finals of November of 2020 and up to now has been working to return what before. Until the Sunday, carried already more than a week training to the same rhythm of his mates and therefore Ronald Koeman decided to give him minutes in the crash.

The Catalan went in to the field to fault of 23 minutes for the end of the meeting, but did not do it in the right side, as it comes being usual. The Dutch trainer preferred to have the canterano in the centre of the field and took him out like interior by Miralem Pjanic, that went back to lose another opportunity to stand out. An interesting decision by part of the technician, that could begin to have he like a half more from now.

It is curious that Koeman decided to bet by Sergi like mediocampista, his place of origin, since up to now only had had he like carrilero. In all the parties that had contested Roberto with the Dutch until the Sunday had gone out in defence, by what surprised this change. It will be necessary to see if the preparador of Zaandam gives him continuity to the Catalan in the half or only has been a mere probatura.

In the more than 20 minutes that was on the lawn, the '20' gave a good level and no noticed him too much the inactivity. Still it is far of his best version, but left good feelings and no desentonó in comparison to the rest of his mates. From now, it is missing to see which role occupies in the rotation of his trainer and especially in which place of the field finish playing, since this will affect directly in the minutes of Óscar Mingueza and of Sergiño Dest in the side, and of Riqui Puig and Miralem Pjanic in the centre of the field.

Like carrilero, the polyvalent footballer always has had some lacks that has attained to amend each season to base of work, effort and personality. As half, is far to be of the best, but can contribute work, arrival, good deal of balloon and physicist. It will be mission of Koeman decide in which position needs him more the team and where can be more useful he in these moments.

Sergi, happy for having gone back to play

After the duel, the one of Reus spoke in front of the camera of 'Movistar' on his return. In the personal, Sergi Roberto showed loved to be able to have gone back to play and mentioned the complicated that has been this unemployed time.
