Quique Setién is using Sergi Roberto as a wild card and is giving him very different roles since he arrived at Barça. That of Reus, who was side this Saturday against Getafe, played in previous clashes of central, indoor or even extreme
Sergi Roberto already was being the joker of Ernesto Valverde during the beginning of this season, but the arrival of Quique Setién to the Barcelona bench has caused that the Catalan was more multipurpose that never. Against the Getafe this past Saturday played of right side, a position to which already is adapted fully, but in previous split had split from other entirely distinct places.
The one of Reus has played in question of weeks in a total of four entirely different places between himself. Against the Valency in Mestalla, for example, went out of head office by the right in the defence of three that used the trainer culé in his first crashes with the Barça. In front of the Granada also was in the centre of the saga, the same that against the Ibiza in Glass of Rey. It did not surrender badly and it helped in the exit of balloon, but the blaugrana did not adapt to this system and the Cantabrian finished changing it.
Against the Raise, Sergi was acting but had minutes in the second part. For surprise of all, Setién decided to take it out of right extreme to occupy a lane that until this moment did not have owner. In the chambers of Glass against the Athletic Club went back to repeat in right band in a commitment that the Catalans finished losing. The Barça was deleted of the tournament copero by the bilbaínos and in the following meeting the technician santanderino went back to change of place to Roberto.
Against the Betis, with a 4-4-2 very marked with Antoine Griezmann and Leo Messi up, the canterano played of right interior with a lot of tarpaulin. In his years in the Barça has showed to be a solvent side, but does not be necessary to forget that the centre of the field is the place in which it stood out in the Masia. Have to a footballer like him has to be a pleasure for any trainer and now is Setién the one who is enjoying of the variants that allows him have Roberto.
It marked the second goal in League of his career
Against the Getafe, the drop by illness of Nélson Semedo forced to the ex of the Betis to put to the of Reus in the right-handed side. As almost always, it surrendered well and even it did something that had not done from August of 2017. Sergi marked the 2-0 in front of the azulones and annotated the second so much in League of his career. From this 2017, in the first day, the canterano had not marked an alone goal in the domestic championship.
Semedo Is every time better and carries a pair of weeks to big level, by what the normal is that Setién bet by him in the side when it was recovered. This will do that Roberto go back to be the multipurpose that has been up to now for the Cantabrian. In what it subtracts of course, anybody doubts that it will go back to play of carrilero, of interior, of extreme or of what put him. It is the joker of the FC Barcelona and look forward to to be important in the achievement of some title.
