This summer window, Eric Garcia and Depay failed to join Barcelona. The inability to sign the 19-year-old Manchester City defender Garcia means that Barcelona coach Koeman currently has only three reliable defenders.
At present, Koeman only trusts the three central defenders of Pique, Langley and Araujo. However, the Uruguayan has just been promoted to the first team and still lacks enough experience. As the main central defender partners, Pique and Langley have won the trust of Koman. Once the two are injured or suspended, how should the Barcelona coach choose?
If not bothered by injuries, Umtiti would have been an ideal partner for Pique. The two have complementary characteristics and were once regarded as one of Europe's best central defenders. However, after winning the 2018 World Cup, Umtiti encountered a bottleneck in his career, gaining weight after a knee injury, which prevented him from returning to his best condition.
Last season, Umtiti not only was unable to regain the fitness and form to play the game, but it was even difficult to regularly participate in training and was unable to return to his best form. At present, Umtiti has not resumed training with his teammates, and it is still unknown when to resume training. Therefore, it may be difficult for Koeman to give him a chance to play.
2. Ramos Mingo
In February 2019, Barça’s B team technical secretary Bakro signed Mingo, and at Xia Chuang, Barcelona had hoped to loan him out. However, Koeman's assistant Schroeder watched the Barcelona B game and believed that Mingo, who came off the bench, was performing well, so he was recruited into the first team for training. Mingo's performance in training impressed Koman, and Mingo was on the squad in the first two games of the season.
3. Frankie Dejon
The central defender is not the most suitable for De Jong, but when he played for Ajax, De Jong also played this position. As an offensive midfielder, De Jong is not good at defensively, but even if he changes to play central defender, he will frequently appear in the midfield and help two midfielders to control the game.
Busquets has made many cameo central defenders in his career. When Guardiola coached, Busquets played the central defender position, but Guardiola eventually transformed Mascherano into a central defender. Although not fast enough and not very good at marking people, Busquets' excellent positional sense makes Busquets competent for this position. Earlier, after Langley left the field, Busquets had a cameo as a central defender. Busquets doesn't like playing central defender, but in an emergency, he may change to central defender again.
When coaching Betis, Setien used to use three central defenders, and Philpo served as central defender in 12 games. After switching to Barcelona, Fierbo once served as a central defender against Ibiza in the Copa del Rey. Due to the strong position of Alba's main force, it is difficult for Filpo to get a chance to play in Barcelona, and after Koman coached, Filpo could not get the chance to prove himself. In the 4231 formation, Fierbo is also not suitable for playing central defender.
Relying on the characteristics of being competent in multiple positions, Roberto was able to gain a foothold in Barcelona. As a defensive midfielder, Roberto's most often played position is right back, and against Granada, Roberto has also played central back. Enrique once said, "Roberto can even play as a center, except for goalkeeper, he can play all positions." After Durst joins, Roberto can return to the position of the midfielder, and even go to the center back.
While playing for Twente, Oriol Busquets played 23 times, including 22 starts. After returning to Barcelona, Oriol Busquets played with the first team in the preseason, but then returned to the B team. Because he played for Twente, Koeman is very familiar with the characteristics of Auriol, but whether he will get a chance to play in the first team is still unknown.
8. Mingesa, komas
Mingeza and Comas are the main center-back partners of the Barcelona B team. The former is regarded as the successor of Pique and has been recruited into the Spanish U19 youth team. After Cuenca left, Mingeza became the main force of the B team. In addition, Mingesa has also been training with the first team, Setien has been on the roster when coaching. Komas has excellent physical conditions and passing skills, can be competent for central defenders and defensive midfielders, but he is currently difficult to enter the first team.
