After a year nefasto in how much to the performance of the signings -except Umtiti-, Robert expects that Deulofeu and Semedo can show his cost in the Barça. His philosophy is very clear, bet by young people and with projection to half-long term

In the world of the football needs a point of luck to be able to triumph. From the trainers to the players going through the sportive directors. There are so many factors that can finish happening bill and changing it everything... And this knows it Robert Fernández, conscious that this summer needs to hit yes or yes or his place could peligrar.

It is evident that neither Alcácer, neither Gomes neither so at least Digne went out too well the past course. The first finish well thanks to his smell goleador and to the good do of Messi, but cost him adapt; the Portuguese has been very apathetic and without confidence, far of that elegant version in Valencia; and the French has fulfilled his role without too many alardes.

The three have in common a thing, the age. All are been born in 1993. Curiously of the same year that Semedo, and one less than Deulofeu, of the 94. This shows that the philosophy of Robert is very clear: it is necessary to rejuvenate the staff. Because improve it, to global level, is complicated. They need pulir details. And those go through young people with projection.

Samuel Umtiti, the mirror in which they can look all these players, also is of the 93. And it is the only that has adapted to perfection and has surrendered to the level that requires the Barça. Robert looks for with quite a lot of criterion and index card international players with his respective selections. Youngsters and with route, an idea more than hit. Now it needs this point of luck so that they can explode in the Camp Nou.

What could not tolerate is to sign veteran players by a quantity of money injustificable. Mathieu was a good example -20 millions-. The strategic plan is well, now is missing that these players surrender to the level expected. If they achieve it, Robert will have ensured the future of the club to half term. 

6 players above the 30

A good sample of the youth of the current Barcelona staff is the average of age. With the signings of the past year and the incorporations of Deulofeu and Semedo, only there are six players that surpass the 30 years of age: Messi, Suárez, Hammered, Burn, Iniesta and Mascherano. The four first are of the 87, whereas the manchego and the Argentinian were born in the 84. That is to say, there is not any player that surpass the 33 years of age. 

It will be necessary to expect if the new incorporations, and those that will begin his second campaign in the Camp Nou, stand out. To be like this, there will be a lot of reasons to dream with this staff. But already they know it, this is not the Playstation and win is not easy.
