Calendar of FC Barcelona

If there is something true is that the FC Barcelona has head offices for a lot of years, a very different situation to which lived Ronald Koeman to his arrival to the City Condal, when it explained only with Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti (lesionado in this moment). The culés did not achieve to reinforce the defensive saga with Eric García by economic questions and, punished by the injuries, had to 'fish' in the quarry; something that went out him very well to the Dutch technician.

First it was Ronald Araújo and afterwards Óscar Mingueza. The two canteranos showed an incomprehensible maturity by his short age, when the Barça more needed it. Both dressed of leaders, rotaron and went the replacement for a Hammered that it happened half season lesionado and Clément Lenglet whose performance was very irregular, leaving backwards to Samuel Umtiti, with the one who Koeman has not explained. The true is that they turned into key players for his trainer and 'fixed' in the defence, assuming also the role of right side, in the case of Mingueza, when Dest or Sergi Roberto were not available.

They were two big 'signings' to cost zero for the Barça of Koeman in the past season and, although in this course the competition by a place will be maximum to consequence of the 'overbooking' of zageros that there is, surely will find a gap in the plans of the Hero of Wembley, because they have won it to him to base of work and a lot of effort. Ronald Araújo, in concrete, has a point 'extra' in favour and is his leadership in the field, a factor that the one of Zaandam values undoubtedly.

In a lot of moments saw him order he same to his mates in the played to unemployed balloon or argue them in moments of disconnection, retorting a bit the paper that has Gerard Hammered for the Barça the one who, in addition to being one of the best head offices of the Barcelona history, also is one of the big leaders of the team in the field and changing room, being the one who heaves the voice in the most difficult moments.

The next Barcelona leader

To fault to renew his agreement with the Barça, that wins in the summer of 2022, Araújo has all paints it to turn into one of the Barcelona referents in the low zone of the field on a long-term basis. His big talent with hardly 22 years and the good performances that has cuajado under the orders of Koeman are the certainty that the culés have achieved a central of guarantees that commits very few errors and that, besides, adds to the attack and marks goals.
