Sergi Roberto is one of these players that suppose an enjoyed for the trainers, since they can plant him in practically any position and always surrender well. The midfield player of Reus is key so much in the Spanish selection as in the Barça
Sergi Roberto is the clear example of player of the Masia that knew to have confidence without losing the patience and expect his opportunity in the first team of the FC Barcelona. On the contrary that a lot of canteranos, that leave at first to another team, the one of Reus remained in the team culé until it could win the place.
In spite of being midfield player, Luis Enrique bet him like right side and worked wonderfully. It turned into a very interesting joker, since it learnt to play so much of lateral as of extreme, adding that the positions of interior and of mediocentro already knew them for being those that occupied usually in the quarry. His paper did not vary with Ernesto Valverde.
Julen Lopetegui did not summon him to play with the Spanish selection but, after the arrival of Luis Enrique, goes back to be a fixed in the 'Red'. In a recent interview with the country, recognised that the fact to be so polyvalent has opened him a lot of doors: "To me play in several positions has given me the opportunity to be an important player in the Barça".
Sergi Roberto knows that his big virtue is the one to be versatile and play well in any position, by what does not complain put him where put him: "The only time that have played with Luis in the selection, in Wembley, did it in the midfield. In the entrenos also plants me in the half. I am to play where he think that can help more".
Also they asked him on if it is him easier play in the band or in the centre, with a curious answer: "When have the balloon and are in the band, know that behind you do not have to anybody because you are in the line and see it everything more than face. You see better where are the spaces and the rivals. In the half, in teams like the Barça and the selection, the rivals close you a lot backwards and there is very little space. This forces you to think a lot before receiving. It is more complicated to see to the rivals. You can not distract you neither half second. In the band this is simpler".
Sergi Roberto, the complete player
Sergi Roberto debuted in the first team of the hand of Pep Guardiola and, in spite of that took in finding his place in the first team, finish doing indispensable. Now it is a total footballer, able to give good performance in a lot of positions. At the end, it seems that the players that have patience finish seeing recompensados.
