The defeat of the FC Barcelona in front of the Seville the past Wednesday, by 2-0, left clear several things that the club and the trainer of the same, Ronald Koeman, have to take in account. In this sense, one of the situations that remained extremely evidenciada, went that the group culé if it needed the arrival of Eric García in January, by more delicate that it was the economic situation.

The defence of the Barcelona has while being a headache and in front of the Seville, said situation noticed deeply. Samuel Umtiti starred a disastrous party, remaining portrayed in the two goals of the Andalusian group and Óscar Mingueza, the another central defender that was ranged by Koeman in the crash, does not have the sufficient experience as to face crashes of high range, as it reflects it a report of the technical office of the club.

To this it is necessary to add him that Koeman had to resort to Juniro Firpo, player that does not have the confidence of the Dutch, to play in a profile that is not his, since it acted like right side. All this disaster in the formula defensia of the Barcelona is the clearest evidence that Eric García had to arrive in January and that his "no signing" weighs now more than ever, given the drops of Hammered, Araújo, Dest and Sergi Roberto.

The signing of the player formed in The Farm only had cost three million euros and had been an enormous impulse in the defence culé regarding quality and, especially, regarding the handle of options by part of Ronald Koeman. Putting the case of the party in front of the Seville like example, if Eric García had been fichado in January, had been able to play like couple of Umtiti and cushion better his errors, as well as it had given freedom so that Mingueza went situated in the right side and did not suffer as much as central, collaborating this also with the absence of an uncomfortable Junior Firpo in the side diesto.

Eric García, compulsory signing in June

The arrival of Eric García is a compulsory task for the FC Barcelona, once the player finish his agreement with the Manchester City, in June of this year. With a new president already elect and with the immediate possibility to sell and yield players to obtain bottoms in when to budget of signings and elasticity salarial, no longer there are valid excuses so that the leaders culés do not concretise the turn of the Spanish.

Between other zones that the club has to look for improve, the central defence is perhaps the most important, given the fault of performance that have presented Umtiti and Lenglet, the fault of experience of Mingueza and the injuries of Hammered and Araújo. The same 30 June, when Eric García finalise his agreement, has to be being contacted by the Barcelona to close, once and for all, his signing by the Catalan club.
