The experience is a degree, and even more in the world of the football. From here that Samuel Umtiti, with several years of bagaje and successes in the selection of France, split with advantage by in front of Clément Lenglet like left-handed head office of the 'bleus', as it has confirmed in the last hours the seleccionador Frenchman Didier Deschamps.

"He (Samuel Umtiti) was stopped a lot of months, had problems before and during the World-wide", has remembered the technician. "After this complicated him (by the problems in the knee), paid a bit this effort. Now it has gone back and there is not problem", has signalled.

Deschamps Recognises that Lenglet has been upper this season to Umtiti to level of clubs, taking into account that 'Big Sam' happened half season in the infirmary and, afterwards, had to lidiar with the suplencias because of the good state of form of the ex of the Seville. In France the things are distinct and Umtiti will have more minutes -a priori-, but this does not mean that Lenglet can not assault also the titularity.

"There is competition to be between the 23 of the list, and both are here. And when they are in the list, there is a logical and natural competition to form part of the eleven initial", has commented Deschamps. "Samuel Umtiti carries years with us and has played several competitions (Eurocopa and World-wide), in comparison with Lenglet, that premières ".

In this sense, Deschamps will not forget to the hour to make the alignments what can contribute him Umtiti. "I do not go to sweep what did Umtiti. There are two appearances, but this does not mean that we have to sweep at the same time a series of internacionalidades, parties accumulated with automatisms and habits and knowledge of the selection".

Blessed dilemma for Ernesto Valverde

It play one or another, the question is that the FC Barcelona will be the benefited. The minutes can go of perlas to Samuel Umtiti to recover progressively the level that lució during his two first seasons in the Barça, whereas Lenglet will purchase an international experience that, to his 23 years, also will serve for curtirle and develop his potentialities.

In principle both will be still in the FC Barcelona the next season 2019-20, and will go back to lidiar -although this time of zero- by a place in the eleven of Ernesto Valverde. If Umtiti recovers the level of antaño and Lenglet keeps the one of this last course, the 'Txingurri' will have a blessed dilemma.
