The reason why Riqui Puig does not play for Barça

The situation of Riqui Puig at FC Barcelona It has not changed since Quique Setién’s stage ended in the 2019/20 season. We all thought that, with the departure of ronald koeman and the arrival of Xavi Hernandez to the Camp Nou bench, he would begin to be an important piece in the first team rotation, to the point of being able to fight for a position to be a starter in the midfield area. But the scenario remains the same, one could even say that it has worsened in various factors.

The young midfielder has barely played 292 minutes so far this season since the arrival of Xavi Hernández to the Barça team, numbers lower than those he had with Ronald Koeman:

2021/22 with Koeman: 4 games played with 72 minutes on the pitch, with the context that the relationship between both parties did not seem to be the best.

Although it is no secret to anyone that Riqui Puig’s relationship with the Dutch coach was not the best, Xavi has not given him the continuity that everyone expected to see his quality in the first team. And the main reason this happens isn’t a secret to anyone either: He’s no better than the players he’s competing with for position.

Gavi, Nico Gonzalez (who are younger) and Frankie de Jong they are better players than him, which has been seen in the games these three have played this season. Despite the hype generated by his figure, due to the fact that he is one of the youth players who made the most difference in FC Barcelona’s lower teams, his performance in the first team has never been the best.

It is a soccer profile that does not quite fit into the position game that the current coaching staff advocates, so it seems complicated that it could be an important piece in the remainder of the season and its departure seems to be imminent in the next market of summer signings
