Edgar, from guest to untouchable

Only Nabil Fekir plays more minutes than Edgar in this Betis. That reflects the weight taken by the youth squad since last summer, when he returned from his assignment in Oviedo and became an emergency center for Manuel Pellegrini. He did it first before the delay in signing a replacement for Aissa Mandi. Later due to the physical setbacks of Marc Bartra and after that due to the injury of Víctor Ruiz. A whole host of circumstances that the defender knew how to take advantage of to show that he has resources to spare to be important in Heliópolis. His performance, for the moment, is not inferior to that of his competitors for a position in the rear despite having played in recent seasons as a center midfielder. And Pellegrini sticks to his conditions to put plasters on the edges present in the last planning.

Edgar is already one of the center-backs of the first squad. He earned that right with minutes and sacrifice and without making too many mistakes despite the logical shortcomings of his game. Pellegrini wants to take advantage of this dynamic to make it important, especially because of Bartra’s physical irregularity and the need to distribute minutes to his centrals. In addition, Pezzella’s performance also leaves some grays on the scene that open questions about the plan executed in the Verdiblanca defense this past summer.

For Pellegrini, the central zone of his defense is the most important aspect in relation to the need to take a step of growth. He knows that some of the most important defects of his team are there and he intends to recover the reliability thread that was exposed in the past season during several games, especially when the squad managed to make a qualitative leap at the defensive level in the first months 2021. Edgar already served as a makeshift pivot with Rubi at the helm two seasons ago. Today, he has a place in Pellegrini’s plan and does not intend to get off a train that can lead him to his definitive confirmation in the LaLiga elite.
