Junior Firpo arrived to the FC Barcelona the past summer on request expresses of Ernesto Valverde. The technician extremeño asked a left side to compete with Jordi Alba and the Hispanic-dominican, because of his offensive profile, his physicist portentoso and his knowledge of LaLiga after his go through the Real Betis, went the elected in consensus between sportive direction and technical body.

However, the Txingurri every time is leaving clearer that does not have he. While Jordi Alba was lesionado, Junior Firpo became to title in some party and even marked a goal in front of the Getafe, but at all of this seems to convince to the technician extremeño to unblock his fault of opportunities.

In it Raise, it lived an odd situation and inexplicable. Valverde Had decided to give him rest to Jordi Alba, one of the mainstays of the team so much in attack as in defence. Junior Firpo is, together with the Catalan, the only specialist in the place of left side, by what the Ciutat of València could be a good stage to give him minutes and confidence. But it did not go like this.

The Txingurri preferred to contrive a puzzle formed by 'patches' before that give him the alternative to the ex bético. It moved to Nélson Semedo of the right side to the left, went back to delay to Sergi Roberto to the right-handed lane of the defence and Junior Firpo, that had travelled until Valencia, remained finally in the terracing, being Jordi Alba the one who remained in the bench.

Another experiment more than a Valverde that lately is taking odd decisions and that, for more inri, are not him working. Finally, the party of Raise finish being an absolute disaster, especially in a second time in which the defence did waters. Stranger is what had happened if the pieces had not moved and each player had played in his usual place, but known was what happened in Valencia.

The reaction of Junior Firpo

The cameras of The Day After Movistar + attracted the exact moment in which Jon Aspiazu communicated him to Junior Firpo that, after travelling to Valencia, had been descartado by Ernesto Valverde and would see the party from the terracing. The face of few friends of the side in his back talk with his ex mate Sergio León says it everything.
