The preseason of Sevilla is throwing a clear nod to the potential of its quarry. One of the names that focuses many focuses is José Ángel Carmona, who started the last stakes against PSG and Roma and left pleasant sensations to expose his candidacy to Julen Lopetegui. There are defensive needs in the current Nervionense plan and for now the youth squad wants to be bold and aspire to have a place in the first team. His incentives are there: he is brave on the pitch, he can play as a center-back and as a right-back and his game bases convince the coach, who did not hesitate to give him opportunities due to the lack of pieces.
Your tests are proving excellent to measure your conditions. Tall rivals and a three-back system so you can reflect your potential. He accompanied Gudelj and Rekik in the last two dates, leaving only that lack of understanding in the last gasp of the clash against the Parisians. Lopetegui is using a system conditioned by absences, especially in his left-handed lane, although it is a formula that he already implemented during some games last season. The Basque wants to measure the potential of his defenders of the quarry before any setback of this beginning of campaign: Koundé is negotiating his departure, Diego Carlos is still in the Olympic Games, Sergi Gómez left and Gnagnon does not have confidence from the coaching staff. José Ángel wants to take advantage of this scenario of doubts to make a place for himself.

Lopetegui has already warned on other occasions that he will not hesitate to give more playing time to any youth squad that shows merits for it. He had a plan for Bryan Gil, but Tottenham's offer minimized any other context for the footballer's future and the club's growth. The coach looks askance at Monchi, who will bring reinforcements in the coming weeks and will make the panorama regarding his defense clearer, with Koundé in the center of the spotlight. But meanwhile, José Ángel wants his place.
