Put in the closet since the start of the season, Samuel Umtiti, the French central defender, could find playing time with FC Barcelona.
The tricolor world champion has not made any appearance since the start of the current sporting exercise. Having long suffered from physical problems repeatedly since 2018, Samuel umtiti seems to have regained shape. Having invested a lot in the preparation for the offseason to return to his best level, the Frenchman could benefit from the change of coach in Barcelona.
According to information from the Spanish media AS, Xavi, the replacement of Ronald Koeman on the Catalan bench, would have been impressed by Samuel Umtiti’s performance in training. The Spanish technician made it known to the first concerned in front of the whole group. Good news for the French international who could certainly take advantage of the half-hearted performances of his competitors to save playing time in championship.
