Riqui Puig went back to be the revulsivo of the FC Barcelona in the final of the Supercopa of Spain against the Athletic Club, but by his quality deserves to have more leadership

Calendar of FC Barcelona

In the final of the Supercopa of Spain in which the FC Barcelona fell defeated against the Athletic Club of Bilbao (3-2), Ronald Koeman went back to show that Riqui Puig is, for him, a simple revulsivo for when the things go bad. The canterano went in to the terrain of game in the extention, when Iñaki Williams already had marked the definite goal that converted to the Basques in champions.

Riqui Puig had little time on the terrain of game, but showed again that it is a player to take into account much more of what Ronald Koeman does it. The canterano went back to give oxygen to the FC Barcelona thanks to the speed that prints him to the circulation of balloon, in addition to his deployment and his fast and vertical drivings. Virtudes that the Barcelona team is not exploding in the measure that could do it.

Since Ronald Koeman arrived to the bench of the FC Barcelona, the leadership of Riqui Puig has been very scarce. The canterano has had minutes in dropper and, in spite of the injury of Philippe Coutinho and to the exit of Carles Aleñá as yielded to the Getafe, the canterano has kept on being exactly the same for the Dutch technician: a revulsivo for parties in which the marker is against.

In spite of that Riqui Puig adds very few minutes this season, in all the parties that has contested has left the feeling to be a player very aprovechable and that it would have to have options to litigate by the titularity. It is a midfield player with one hundred by one hundred 'DNA Barça' and squanders talent to piles, in addition to some qualities in the pass and the circulation that could benefit a lot to the forwards.

Riqui Puig is a footballer that could join to others of his same cut like Pedri González or Frenkie of Jong, but that by any odd reason does not have the attention of Ronald Koeman. If the results accompanied to the FC Barcelona, could understand the attitude of the Dutch technician but, by the irregularity of the team, does not understand that it do not give more ball to a player with talent for exploding.

From some media ensured that Ronald Koeman had an important rifirrefe with Riqui Puig at the beginning of season, since it considered him a filtrador of information. Given the evident talent and service that the canterano can offer him to the team, the grudge of the Dutch seems can be the only logical explanation so that this do not have more minutes.

Riqui Puig, in an ideal system for him

In the last parties, Ronald Koeman has recovered the 4-3-3 classical in the FC Barcelona, the one who employs two interiors. Riqui Puig feels especially comfortable in this role, since it is the natural position that has occupied in the inferior categories. It will be necessary to see if, with the irregularity of results, the technician culé gives his arm to twist with the young midfield player.
