crazy ball – Former Barcelona B coach Gerard Lopez assesses the stagnation of Riqui Puig’s career due to the mistakes of the Spanish League giants themselves.
Riqui Puig is a product of the Barcelona academy. The footballer who is now 22 years old started his career with the Catalan club from under-16 until finally breaking into the first team.
It is predicted that he will be able to find a future midfielder for the Spanish League giants. Ernesto Valverde’s withdrawal left him stunned. Unfortunately, Puig now even has trouble getting playing minutes with Barcelona from the Ronald Koeman era to Xavi Hernandez. In the 2021/202 season, the midfielder played just 17 games in all competitions.
Unfortunately, most of the time when playing came from the bench. Because Riqui Puig does not continue to be a bench warmer, he leaves the Blugrana.
Among the news doing the rounds, Riqui Puig has the potential to continue his football career to LA Galaxy. Signs he will leave Barcelona and pursue a career in the United States after being cleared to train Tuesday (9/8) night WIB.
Despite this, Gerard Lopez reckons that Riqui Puig’s failure to play in the giants’ first team is not entirely the player’s fault.
Speaking to Radio Catalunya as reported by Spanish footballGerard Lopez said Puig did not shine because of the lack of opportunities offered by the Barcelona first team.
Gerard Lopez said that in the era of Ronald Koeman and Xavi Hernandez, the player was rarely played. But, he reminded Riqui Puig is a footballer who is actually suitable for Barca. He also disagrees that he plays little, but the player often receives criticism.
Riqui Puig has one more year under contract with Barcelona. If he joins the LA Galaxy, then maybe the time is right for him to prove himself that he really deserves to play at Camp Nou.
