At FC Barcelona it seems that there is already a problem with Riqui Puig given that, as with Ronald Koeman , he is not entering into Xavi Hernández's plans either . It was expected that the return of the Catalan coach would give some air to the career of the young Barça squad, but it seems that nothing changes in his sports career and he still has very few minutes to show how good a player he promised to be.

Nothing has changed for the young squad with the change of coach at Barça. They were promised very happy when they fired Koeman to bet on Xavi, a man of the house and who, a priori, has the young people of La Masía, however, the Catalan has only put Riqui Puig on the pitch in 12 minutes, an amount of time that is too low, far from what the player and his environment expected. He is one of the least used players in the squad, he only accumulates 135 minutes, spread over seven official matches.

Riqui Puig should sit down with his agents and do a reflection exercise after not being indisputable neither with Ernesto Valverde, nor with Quique Setién, nor with Ronald Koeman nor in Xavi's first games. The only viable way out to 'save' his sports career and not be stagnant is to leave FC Barcelona in the next markets, either as an assignment or sold with some future buyback option. The young player cannot continue like this since he needs minutes to show his quality.
