One of the first decisions that seemed to take Quique Setién in the FC Barcelona was to go up to Riqui Puig definitively to the first team. The young Catalan midfield player did not explain for Ernesto Valverde, but gave the impression that to the Cantabrian liked him and that would have opportunities with him. In his première with the Barça, in fact, the santanderino summoned to Riqui and took him out in the second part against the Granada.

The one of Matadepera completed a good performance in front of the Andalusians and was key in the Barcelona victory when stealing the balloon that finish turning into the so much of the victory of Leo Messi. These minutes raised the spirits of a lot of fans, that ilusionaron when seeing the new paper that could have the jewel of the filial. Several weeks afterwards this flame of illusion is turning off, at least of momentary way.

Riqui Was to title for the first time this course in the Ibiza-Barcelona of Glass of Rey and did not have his day. The canterano had good part of fault of the so much of the ibicencos by not going with the sufficient strength to the balloon and had a very grey meeting, as the majority of his mates. Setién Decided to substitute him in the second half and saw from the bench like Antoine Griezmann traced back the eliminatory and classified to the Barça for the eighth of final.

After this crash, an illness separated him of the list of summoned against Valencia and the trainer barcelonista decided to throw of another of the promises of the B. Álex Hill was called to rows and even had some minutes in the final stretch of the party when the Barcelona looked for the traced back. The blaugrana could not give him the turn to the marker and finish falling against the valencianistas, but the one of Sabadell left good feelings in the few balloons that touched.

These good feelings and the bad that left Riqui against the Ibiza have caused that Setién decide to follow having he and leave was to the mediocampista in front of the Leganés. Hill yes went in in the list of the Cantabrian, whereas Puig, already recovered of his illness, will see the Glass from the terracing. The exit of Carles Pérez, that has left to the Rome traspasado, also causes that the santanderino need more an extreme or mediapunta that a midfield player.

They complicate the things for Riqui

With Arthur Melo already recovered and with Ivan Rakitic confirmed until final of campaign, Riqui could go back to have problems to play regularly even with Setién in the bench. For the moment, the ex bético already has left him went against the Leganés and it will be necessary to see which sucede in front of the Raise this weekend. Hill, by his part, seems that will have options until Ousmane Dembélé recover , since Setién does not have a lot where choose.
