Some Barcelona fans wans Pablo Torre to start against Valencia – even though Xavi has not let him play against less serious opponents either. The 19-year-old has so far received only 30 minutes of first-team playing time across all competitions.
Here’s how the fans explain their choiсe:
Mister Bee: “Pablo Torre. Let’s see what he’s made of. Let him start, we want to see his progress. No bringing him on when game is either lost or won”.
Osman de Rosky: “Pablo Torre”.
‘Ansu Fati’ was also a fairly common reply.
AjibadeAjayiGoal: “Ansu Fati, of course! Xavi has deprived him too much of playing time. He needs to play more to gain confidence and experience. If we say we are doing a rebuilding project, we should encourage our young players to improve”.
Abeeb Bolaji: “I want to see Fati start tomorrow cos they guy needs game time to recover”.
Hopefully, amid the news of Ansu’s possible departure for lack of playing time, the gaffer will reconsider his stance on the La Masia product.
