Along the history there have been players that could not settle in Barcelona, already was by a reason or another. Estrrllas Frustrated, youngsters that did not explode... And it is that it is not at all simple to stand out in the Barcelona club, of maximum requirement

Calendar of FC Barcelona

In the Barça always looks for the excellence. It is not at all simple to surrender in a club that requires of a talent and of a high daily work. Of at all it serves to do two parties of high level if the three following are toneless or mediocre. The Camp Nou does not forgive and always asks the maximum. By tradition, by aims. By everything. And clear, some players that landed in the city condal did not work.

In this article pretend to enumerate the most recent cases of players that did not work or were very underneath of the performance expected. The most recurrent, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swedish cost 80 millions and never was able to settle in the team of Guardiola, headed clearly by Messi.

In the last years have seen signings of a poor level like Hleb, Cáceres, Chigrinski, Douglas, Vermaelen... Some by fault of opportunities, others by youth, others by fault of talent... But never cuajaron and finish leaving -or have the hours explained as it is the case of the Belgian-. Bad money invested and without any type of sense.

In the current first team there are three players that have cost 110 millions and that surely will go proximamente. We refer us to Turan, Alcácer and Gomes. The Portuguese is the one who more play although his performance is far of the that has to him ask to a Barcelona player. The bets have to be much more in firm that these, more paying such price.

If we trace us back to further back we find names like Riquelme -irregular talent-, Sorín, Bogarde, Petit, Amunike... Historically always it has there have been difficult errors to amend.

The importance of the quarry

These examples allow us reflexionar about a thing: the quarry. It is fundamental that there are players that go out of The Farm. In the first place because there is an investment in shape of minutes and daily work so that they arrive to the first team. Second because they feel the colours and always will give the callus. Sometimes we look it was what already have home. They are difficult failures to understand. And of which it is necessary to learn. Ojalá Aleña Have, like minimum, the opportunity to show that it serves.
