A Barcelona this national team break could not have fallen in a better way. The team of Ronald Koeman He had enough time to rest and wait for the spirits inside the institution to calm down after the hard start to the season they had. In LaLiga they are in ninth position and in Champions League they still don’t know about victories.
The days without activity have also allowed two footballers who have not yet been able to be used by the Dutch coach to get physically well and are getting closer and closer to making their debut. We talk about Sergio Agüero and Ousmane Dembélé.
The Argentine was announced as one of the Barça team’s brand-new reinforcements for this season, but a tendon injury in the inner calf of his right leg before the Joan Gamper Trophy has not allowed him to play. His return was scheduled for November, although he could be ready earlier.
For his part, Dembélé was injured last Euro with France, in the game against Hungary, in a right knee that seems to be almost recovered, as the winger has been doing field work for days, alone, on the grass of the Ciutat Esportiva.
For now, two of the reinforcements that Ronald Koeman expects for his difficult forward may be close to arriving, and before the winter transfer market. It will be necessary to see who of them receives the medical discharge and if it will be to receive Valencia.
El Barza has a new brand director
Sergi Ricart, who has worked for Nike for the last 18 years, is chosen for the position of brand director of Barcelona, which was empty since president Joan Laporta decided to do without Guillem Graell.
This was announced this Monday by ‘2Playbook’, who also explained that one of the things that was most valued when betting on him was his knowledge of the Barça club, since for years he was the link of the North American multinational with Barça.
Until last week, Ricart was the marketing director for Nike’s sports performance and lifestyle divisions for Southern Europe.
The next step should be to appoint Barça’s new commercial director after Jordi Camps decided to step aside. It will be the fourth that the entity will have in 2021 after the resignations of Xavier Asensi, Cinto Ajram and Camps himself.
