Since Ronald Koeman arrived to the FC Barcelona does more than a hundred of days, had clear that make signings to reinforce the central axis of the defence would be an appearance prioritario so that the team was competitive to all the levels. The Dutch technician, on the same line of what wished the club, gave the seen well to the signing of Eric García (Manchester City), that finish frustrating in spite of that everything aims to that it will be culé in June of 2021.

At all more arrive, Ronald Koeman transmitted him his confidence to Gerard Hammered so that it was again the leader of a defence that would have in Clément Lenglet to his indisputable couple. By behind them it would be Ronald Araújo that, thanks to his performances with the filial -also sporadic with the first team- won the confidence of the technical area. Instead, Samuel Umtiti did not go in in the plans of the Dutch.

The frank-Cameroonian, with an astronomical wage and some chronic physical problems that rack him from 2018, was one of the descartes of Ronald Koeman that the FC Barcelona considered transferible, but finally any team was had to pay his high index card. His situation seemed that it was condemned to the ostracism, although in the last days has opened him a door.

"Samuel Umtiti is a central that carries quite time lesionado and our plan with him is that it put in conditions to play, ojalá, in two weeks. It is training well, it is doing what does the group. It carries long without playing", said.

In spite of the escepticisamo medical and according to the informations of the newspaper 'Sport', the own Samuel Umtiti feels optimistic on the mejoría of his injury in the left knee and thinks that will be able to recover an alike level to the that carried him to be considered one of the best head offices of the world. Without Gerard Hammered opens him an important door to play, although the apparition of Óscar Mingueza or the possible signing of Eric García are serious threats for him. Anyway, it will follow working to return.
