Junior Firpo came to be the relief relief that was demanded for Alba, but so far he has barely counted. In the club they are somewhat upset with their situation and do not understand that Valverde, who approved the signing, does not give him more minutes
The FC Barcelona suffered the past season in the left-handed side by the absence of a player that could substitute with guarantees to Jordi Alba. Juan Miranda left to explain very soon for Ernesto Valverde and was Nélson Semedo the one who occupied the left lane when the one of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat had to ausentarse.
East was the reason that carried to the club in summer to work untiringly in the signing of a side that could relieve to Alba when it did lacking. The elected by his potential and his offensive style was Junior Firpo, settled already in the Real Betis with Quique Setién. The Hispanic-dominican had the seen well of a Valverde that had to the footballer in his radar from did time.
The taste of the 'Txingurri by the footballer is precisely the reason by which from the Barça do not understand why the technician is not him giving more opportunities. In what it goes of campaign, the ex of the Betis has had only four occasions to show his football. It played 9 minutes against his ex, 45 against the Granada and the complete parties against Villarreal and Getafe, where besides marked his only goal like culé.
It is necessary to signal that it has had a pair of injuries that have done him lose a pair of meetings, but if it has not played more has been only by decision of Valverde. The trainer barcelonista has not trusted Junior when Alba has not been available and is preferring to throw of Semedo, that already has contested several crashes to leg changed.
In the changing room and in club are hallucinated by the power that has the canterano verdiblanco and think that can be very important for the team. Has defensive and tactical lacks, and east would be the reason by which Valverde goes calmly with him, but in the Barça understand that the side deserves play more. If they spent 18 million euros more 12 in variables was so that it play whenever Alba was not, something that, for the moment, has not occurred.
Valverde Could trust at last in Junior
It seems that, now that the Catalan has gone back to lesionar, the ex of the Athletic could trust at last in Junior. The carrilero aims to title against the Celtic of Vigo and, from here, could have continuity to give him confidence. A young footballer and of his characteristics, needs to feel backed to give his best version. In the club think that is his moment and Valverde has to show that it trusts he for the place.
There are few sides in the world with the power, the speed and the stride of Junior, and this is something that the 'Txingurri' has to take advantage of and improve. For the moment, it has preferred to reserve him, but already it goes being time to give him opportunities so that it follow progressing. Has conditions to be the future carrilero left-handed culé, but to arrive to this, before has to consolidate and show that it is a good alternative to Alba.
