Calendar of FC Barcelona

After the exit of Lionel Messi, the FC Barcelona has begun to work in the spare generacional that will take the reins of the team in the years for coming. Players like Pedri, Gavi and Ansu Fati begin to consecrate like the 'stars' of the future of a staff that expects to go back to the highest of the hand of Xavi Hernández, leader of the sportive project of the Barcelona institution. Nevertheless, said spare has gone relegando to the ostracism to several of the 'holy cows' of the square, and one of them has lost his place for this season.

Such is the case of Gerard Hammered, to the one who the trainer of the Catalans has him communicated during the pre-season that does not have he and does not see him like titling during this campaign. The egarense gathered with the central does several weeks to expose him his expensive decision to face in a conversation where exchanged opinions regarding the situation of the '3'. As diverse informations, the decision of the technician would have been based owed "to his high wage, his reiterated injuries and his permanent distractions".

This unknown stage for the defender, indisputable headline from the season 2009-2010, wanted to be taken advantage of by a big of Europe. The Juventus of Turín, whose defence saw weakened after the game of Matthijs of Ligt with destination to the Bayern of Munich, interested in the Catalan defender to occupy the place of the Dutch in the alignment, as it has informed the portal 'OneFootball'. However, Gerard does not want to dress another T-shirt in the old continent that was not the blaugrana, by what refused the offer.

And it is that the legendary defender blaugrana has an alone aim, which is to show him to Xavi that it makes a mistake when happening it to a flat second and leave in evidence that it is the best head office of the Catalan group. I hammered it has manifested them in reiterated occasions so much to his trainer as to Joan Laporta that will put all his efforts in achieving the titularity in the square of the egarense, and the refusal to the 'bianconeri' does not do more than reinforcing his promise. Now, in his hands is to show that it still has the level to be the leader of the defence culé.

The 'éxamen' more difficult of his career

This season will be one of the most difficult proofs in the career of the player, the one who expects to visit a different way to the that transitaron Xavi, Puyol and Iniesta. The three legends blaugranas saw like the age and the physicist happened them bill, doing them lose his place in hands of young figures. The case of Hammered is distinct, since it feels in full conditions to compete of you to you with the others members of the staff, by what in his hands will remain to achieve a gap in the eleven initial or assume that his stage in Can Barça begins to arrive to his final.

With it looks it in the MLS

Of the same way, the champion of the world in the 2010 has put to the Major League Soccer like his last 'unemployed' before 'hang the booties'. The defender does not pretend to play in another team that was not the FC Barcelona while it seats apt for the elite, but when it consider that it can not contribute at all to the team, United States will be his destination. As 'OneFootball', the Catalan already has an offer of Los Angeles Galaxy, by what in North America are had to expect by him.
