Calendar of FC Barcelona

The worst forecasts fulfilled and seems sure that Samuel Umtiti will be an approximate period of two months moved away of the terrains of game owing to a grave muscular injury. The central lastimó in a career with Iago Sails in the party of the fourteenth day of LaLiga Santander that the FC Barcelona contested in front of the Celtic of Vigo.

Samuel Umtiti had turned into the new leader of the defence of the FC Barcelona. His big performance in the present season had been one of the big bazas of the FC Barcelona to be the team less goleado of the competition. However, Valverde will not be able to range him, possibly, until the month of February.

A situation complicated in the defence that adds to the injury of Javier Mascherano and that does that Gerard Hammered and the almost unpublished Thomas Vermaelen are the only central of the first staff of the FC Barcelona. 

The fault of effective in defence could carry to the technical office of the FC Barcelona to take letters in the subject and put hands to the work to bring a new reinforcement for the central axis in the market of signings of January. Two months without a so important man like Umtiti is long, by what would be risked that the Barcelona group did not do any movement in this appearance.

Valverde Already asked it

Ernesto Valverde tried, at the beginning of season, that the FC Barcelona fichase to Iñigo Martínez, head office of the Real Sociedad. The Barcelona technician asked a central to reinforce the axis of the defence and, when the operation by the central Basque already was almost enclosed, the Barcelona club gave course backwards. Finally, Valverde remained without his piece in the defence.
