Samuel Umtiti was one of the biggest doubts that had the surroundings of the FC Barcelona at the beginning of the present season. His physical problems no only moved it away of the terrains of game, since also they kept it far of his best version like footballer, situation that carried it to be between the options of exits that the club culé analysed to relieve the economic crisis.

However, since it went back to be available to play, at the beginning of December, Umtiti has gone advancing and winning the confidence of Ronald Koeman, what has awarded him a quota of leadership that grows paulatinamente. The French arrived in a moment critic for the defence culé, given the drops that faced said demarcation, by what his high has served to do effective rotations and avoid new injuries.

Included, Umtiti has an interesting factor that has repeated in four of the five commitments that has contested, for now, in the present campaign. The tendency dictates that, when the exfutbolista of the Olympique of Lyon sees minutes with the Barcelona, the team attains to keep his arch in zero, something that has been quite difficult this season.

No sucedió in his debut of the campaign, in front of the Juventus, since this party finished with a reverse of 0-3 for the Barcelona. However, in the other parties that has played Umtiti, the picture culé has been solvent regarding the goals received, since neither the Raise (1-0), neither the Valladolid (0-3), neither the Granada (0-4) neither the Elche (0-2), could penetrate the arch of the Catalans.

Umtiti, still with a lot for improving

Samuel Umtiti follows being far of his best level, that that showed between 2016 and 2018, before an operation in his knee, afterwards of the Glass of the World of Russia 2018, conditioned it. Little by little, the French will go restarting the good competitive rhythm, but, for now, still have noticed him some sewings, like the desentendimiento that had with Mingueza in front of the Elche and that, of not being by Ter Stegen, had meant a goal received.

Although for now it has been the "talisman antigoles" of the Barcelona, neither the same Umtiti neither the club culé have to trust of the all with the actuality that can have the player, since it has to play a lot still to restart the level that expects of him. This, as long as the injuries, his eternal punishment, respect it the sufficient.
