Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, confirmed in the press conference that Sergi Roberto is facing the final part of his recovery from injury.
The Spaniard will fight with Sergiño Dest for the RB spot, although he could return to the centre of the park, his natural position.
Barcelona had bad luck at the end of November. The bad results in La Liga were made evident and the injuries didn’t stop growing. Sergi Roberto got injured then, who still hasn’t returned to the group.
But the Barcelona manager, Ronald Koeman, revealed in the press conference that the Spaniard is approximately two weeks from returning, so he is facing the final stretch of his recovery from a thigh injury.
Sergi Roberto, until the moment of his injury, played at RB, but the good moment of Sergiño Dest could contribute to the Dutch manager maintaining his confidence in the American defender.
And then what happens with him? He could return to the Barca midfield again, like he usually did before he played in defence. The exit of Carles Aleñá is in his favour.
In any case, the little rest between matches and the versatility of Sergi Roberto becomes a magnificent gift for Koeman, who could use him in any of the positions that he plays, and above all, fulfills.
