In summer of 2016, arrived to the FC Barcelona Samuel Umtiti, a promising central of the Olympique of Lyon by which the Barcelona club paid 25 million euros. The frank-Cameroonian did not take too much in surprising with his spectacular performance and, little by little, was displacing to Javier Mascherano of the titularity to do a place like indisputable at the side of Gerard Hammered.

The harp, the physical power and the quality of Umtiti enamoraron in the Camp Nou, that began to see reflected in him a profile of similar defence to the of the legendary Carles Puyol. But something twisted at the beginning of 2018: the physical problems originated in his knee began to cebarse with him and, in spite of that they allowed him play in a principle, went down his level.

Umtiti descartó Operate of his annoyances since it did not want to lose the World-wide of Russia, in which his French selection proclaimed champion. But, after this, the career of the central Frenchman was slope down: it initiated the championship lesionado, went back in the seventh day to play in Wanda Metropolitan against the Athletic of Madrid and went back to remain in the dry dam.

It is true that finish recovering, but his performance did not go back to be the same and saw run over by Clément Lenglet that it commanded him to the bench. In the start of the present season, more than the same: it began being acting of his compatriot and still complicated him more the existence after a fissure with hematoma in a foot.

It has rained a lot since it saw the last relentless party of Umtiti, but the level that showed in his first season and average does that the barcelonismo sigh for seeing him again in his best physical condition.
