Riqui Puig knocks on the door again

The young canterano shone again in the friendly Cartagena, but it does not seem that at the moment he will have a place in the first team.


Riqui Puig is not resigned to his fate and keeps knocking on the door of the first team. The young midfielder of Matadepera (20 years old) was the most outstanding player of Barcelona in the friendly match for the benefit of those affected by the floods of last September in Cartagena that Barça played on Wednesday against the local team at the stadium of Cartagonova.

However, it does not seem that today the player is going to experience a significant change in his status, which at the moment is in the subsidiary playing in Second B, a category that for many is too small.

Riqui Puig himself has changed his mind regarding the start of the season, when he was offered to leave on loan (Zaragoza was his strongest option) and two weeks ago I affirm that if I cannot "go up, I will have to consider the future". With these words Riqui was already beginning to seriously consider a transfer in the winter market.

In addition, the player has repeatedly complained about the kicks and tickets he suffers in Second B, where he has already had to go out on the field stretcher a couple of times. Some statements that incidentally raised controversy in the category and were answered by some former players in an open letter or on social networks.

Last season Riqui Puig played in the subsidiary but was in training dynamics of the first team. He made more preparatory sessions at the orders of Valverde than under the command of García Pimienta and it was with the goalkeeper Iñaki Peña the B player who did more training with the majors.

This year, however, the situation has changed and it is less common to see him train with the first team, which has an overpopulation of midfielders. There are seven players (Sergi Roberto, Sergio Busquets, Rakitic, Aleñá, De Jong, Arturo Vidal and Arthur) to play three places in the starting lineup.

Before this situation, both Rakitic and Aleñá, the main victims of the overcrowding in this area of the countryside, could go out in the winter market and that could give some hope to the canterano that every time the debate can increase with actions like the one had on Wednesday in Cartagena
