Samuel Umtiti is beginning to have an acceptable performance and, from does weeks, does not suffer physical problems. A big advantage for the FC Barcelona
Samuel Umtiti went back to be headline against the Elche after have not played neither an alone minute in the Supercopa of Spain neither in Glass of Rey. Fortunately for the FC Barcelona, his performance was equal of good that the one who had had against the Granada in his last titularity at the beginning of year, showing concentration and a good physical tone that launches increasingly optimism surroundings his figure.
The most positive in the case of Samuel Umtiti is that it already does a lot of weeks that does not appear in the list of drops by injury. His problems in the knees have remitted in the last times and, in spite of the scepticism that always there has been in the medical services of the FC Barcelona, in the present season seems to be holding well the physical tone to be an option in the eleven every time that Ronald Koeman requires it.
That Samuel Umtiti do not have problems in the knees is more important of what can seem in a first moment. In the first place, because the FC Barcelona will not have Eric García to reinforce the central axis of the defence until summer, by what need resources in a position in which it lost to Gerard Hammered by an injury of long length.
Ronald Araújo is fully consecrated in the central axis, but Clément Lenglet and Óscar Mingueza do not finish to have a line of performance so reliable like the one of the Uruguayan. It is thus that it is very interesting that Samuel Umtiti surrender to good level, because to day of today Ronald Koeman does not finish of fiar of anybody like couple of the 'charrúa' and because until it do not go back Gerard Hammered or arrive Eric García, the frank-Cameroonian will have options to play.
That Samuel Umtiti go accumulating minutes and was to a good level no only will be positive to sportive level, but also economic. In time of financial collapse by the pandemia, undo of a so high wage like the one of the international French -reaches the 12 million gross euros- would be very positive, and this only will be possible if has continuity in the FC Barcelona, since only like this will interest by him other teams.
In this sense, the plan traced by the FC Barcelona with Samuel Umtiti will be clear: take advantage of of here to final of season his good qualities like head office and, from summer, traspasarle by the most decent offer that arrive to rid of his index card. However, stop this, will be necessary three premises: that Ronald Koeman give him opportunities, that the player take advantage of them and, the most important, that the injuries respect him.
