During the last days, Samuel Umtiti has turned into one of the pleasant surprises for the FC Barcelona. After a year and half consecutive without being able to do it, the French defence achieved to play three parties followed and the true is that, in addition to showing a physical tone quite good, in the last against the Borussia Dortmund was especially hit substituting to Gerard Hammered.

The frank-Senegalese, therefore, is giving symptoms to be able to go back to be this brilliant head office that was before the injuries began to punish him, especially on his knees. However, to day of today, the couple title in the central axis culé keeps on being the formed by Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet, something that situates to Umtiti like third head office.

In a recent interview to Futbolmanía TV that collects Europe Press, Umtiti recognised that it would love him finish his career in the Barça, but that for this wants to be an important player. "Never it knows , it can be, I do not know it. It would love me, it would like me finish my career here in the Barça but well, am young, eh?

The partidazo that did against the Borussia Dortmund in Champions League​ gives hopes of face to recover his best performance and, in case that this suceda, Hammered and Lenglet will have of what concern. 'Big Sam' is not in Barcelona to be in the bench and the true is that the best Umtiti is able to seat to any one. Thus, his exit foresees unfeasible.
