The Frenchman will be able to debut this Sunday against Valladolid
BARCELONA, 27 Ago. (EUROPA PRESS) –
FC Barcelona was able to register the French central defender Jules Koundé in LaLiga this Saturday, the Barça signing that has been waiting for two weeks to make his debut as a ‘culé’, so he will be able to count on minutes this Sunday on matchday three against Valladolid .
After being unable to play against Rayo Vallecano and Real Sociedad, the defender got the long-awaited registration that allows him to be lined up by Xavi Hernández. A wait due to the regulation of the Catalan team with the ‘fair play’, although finally it has not been necessary for a player to leave to allow him to register.
On August 12, the Catalan team signed up all their signings plus the renewed Sergi Roberto and Ousmane Dembélé except for Koundé, a storm operation in his league debut. Thus, Lewandowski, Kessie, Raphinha, Christensen were available in the first LaLiga match against Rayo.
Xavi showed his conviction in the press conference prior to the match to have the central defender for the third league game. “We are convinced that Koundé will be registered and will be able to play to help us win the game. We are never going to adulterate the competition and less so in the situation we are in. It has been very difficult to register players and it is now,” he explained.
And now it’s your turn, so you’ve already been registered on the competition page. For this reason, once the priority objective of the technical secretariat has been achieved, Barça does not consider the squad closed.
The club hopes to hire some more reinforcements, mainly on the right side, since Xavi does not have Sergiño Dest. A busy market for the Catalans, who finalize their options in the market with five days to go before it closes.
