Yesterday at noon, the coach of Barcelona, Xavi Hernández, was convinced that the Frenchman Jules Koundé would be registered in LaLiga and could enter the call-up for the match that his team will play today (7:30 p.m.) against Valladolid in the Spotify Camp Nou. The coach’s premonition was good and, in the afternoon, the league announced that the Frenchman had been registered, and therefore, he will be able to make his debut in the official match against Valladolid.
The Spanish football governing body gave the green light to the documentation presented by Barça, which has generated ‘fair play’ after the transfer of Samuel Umtiti to Lecce and the decision for Pablo Torre to play with the club’s card, and Koundé is now officially eligible for the league In this sense, he denied that Barça is adulterating the competition with the registration of the Frenchman.
Barça face the last days of the summer market, which will end next September 1, with some files still open. Faced with this situation, the coach of the Barcelona team pointed out that “all scenarios are possible”, although he acknowledged that the signing of Bernardo Silva “will be complicated”. The Blaugrana priority is to incorporate a right-back in front of a left-back.” Seeing Balde’s projection, we have the left-back position well covered, on the right-back we have Sergi (Roberto) and Dest, but he (the American player ) already knows the club’s situation and my stance towards him,” he added. Regarding the situation of Gerard Piqué, unpublished in an official match: “I already spoke with him just before the holidays. I was clear to him, I told him that there would be a lot of competition and that it would not be easy. We have two games, not yet we’re in the month of March. He’s a player who can help us, possibly in another role, and we’ll see how he goes.”
