With the exit of Junior Firpo and the difficulty to go out to the market, the Barça has remained with only a natural left-handed side, but already have a plan for 'cover' the position
The FC Barcelona begins to prepare the season 2021-2022 and are many the decisions that has to take Ronald Koeman to arm a highly competitive team that can litigate by the titles during the next course, that starts on 15 August with the debut in LaLiga in front of the Real Sociedad, in the Camp Nou.
One of the subjects that concern to the club is the left side. With the exit of Junior Firpo, with destination to the Leeds United, the Barça explains only with Jordi Alba to cover the left band. The Spanish has showed that it is a player with a lot of quality and impossible to surpass in his position, but the culés have to cover the backs by a possible injury of the footballer of 32 years.
Without being able to go out the market, by the difficult economic situation of the club, Koeman has to resolve with what has in his staff and fish, if necessary, in the filial. From the sportive direction kept the confidence in Alejandro Bade, but after a meeting with the trainer, the canterano will follow 'preparing' in the Barça B. With this panorama, the Barcelona group remains with two options: Sergiño Dest and Sergi Roberto.
The Dutch trainer has left clear to the club that needs two players by position and between the North American and the Catalan 'rotarán' in case that Alba was not available. Already in the beginning of the course 20-21, Koeman tested to Dest like left-handed side and, although it is not his ideal place, fulfilled with the requirements of the team.
With Sergi Roberto there are options, because the canterano is very polyvalent and the Barça considers it like an alternative to cover the 'hollow' in the centre of the field, but also by the left band if it becomes necessary. With this panorama, everything indicates to that the one of Reus, that has been in the ramp of exit of the Camp Nou from does time, will follow dressing the elastic Barcelona and that finally the club will renew it until 2023.
Emerson... Fixed in the right-handed side?
Emerson Royal arrives to the Barça with the poster to title. The Brazilian, that was key so that the Real Betis put in European places in the past course, presents like a player in which Ronald Koeman goes to trust from the beginning, considering besides the doubts that Dest and Roberto left in the end of season.
