Sergi Roberto was one of the 'worst' FC Barcelona players in the Spanish Super Cup final. He did not connect or feel comfortable with the role that Xavi Hernández gave him and it may be a factor that conditions his future

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The final of the Supercopa of Spain has left very touched to the FC Barcelona-, by a lot of reasons. They are varied the players that have remained 'signalled' and of which expected much more against the Real Madrid, although it has been more a structural failure and of approach that individual errors. The true is that, even like this, is a party that can seed a precedent for a lot of players whose future is at stake of face to the season 2024/2025.

One of those is Sergi Roberto. It repeated titularity and completed the system of four midfield players with a role that did not know how assume and that moved him away of the regular version that came offering in the last weeks. The captain was 'throwing' of the ship and increasing his importance in spite of the little prominence that was adding in this season. The Classical, especially to him, has left him quite touched: it Completed less passes that Iñaki Crag (25 vs 26) and went the only player in all the lawn that was not able to recover a balloon.

Situation complicated for Roberto

It has been a vase of cold water and that, surely, will go in at stake when it begin to argue the possibility that it renew. Xavi Hernández had asked it publicly in the previous of the debut in the Glass of Rey: "it would recommend to the club that renewed to Sergi Roberto. Already they know it. It is important, can play in a lot of positions. Have to explain him very little. It knows what is the Barça, what represents. Footballer very criticised, but always gives the level. Delighted", commented the egarense recently more than a week.

The history can give a dump, if the dynamics keeps . And it is that if there is something tacit in this Barça is that the performance measures in the nights 'big', in which more it is necessary to show and in which it needs that the character and leadership impose . The one of Reus did not achieve to be to the height and it will be necessary to see how many great opportunities from now, especially because hardly it repeat the approach of four midfield players and everything seems to indicate to that the indisputable headlines will be Frenkie of Jong, Ílkay Gündogan and Pedri González.

The Barça has not moved index card by Sergi Roberto

In any case, is worth it to remember that, in spite of the wish that has showed Xavi in that the Barça renew to Roberto, still have not moved pieces to negotiate with the first captain. There are not negotiations on the table and the club could expect to that it finish the season to decide yes, finally, will have the midfield player a new season or if, by the contrary, will leave him go out like free agent.
