Much Ado at Nou Camp
Messi is not here anymore! That is the sad news for all Catalonians and hardcore Barca supporters. But Barca used to be a great club before Messi’s arrival and it will remain legendary and successful after his departure as well. In fact, the leaving of Messi could have a positive impact on the performance of the players. Now they should take more responsibility in order to cover the void left by the Argentinians. The squad of Barcelona looks solid. Perhaps with the recovery of Dembele and Aguero, Barca will be a team able to compete for the title in La Liga.
Barcelona has already signed Emerson Royal from Betis. The Brazilian made two decent seasons at Betis and now is ready to compete with Sergino Dest at the right-back position. Erik Garcia will bring some stability at the back. Memphis Depay is expected to be the lethal force on the left wing. Sergio Aguero should deliver the goals along with Martin Braithwaite and Antoine Greizmann. The former is expected to be the leader of the team along with Frenki de Jong and Sergio Busquets.
Everything at Barca seems to be a huge mess right now. But Barcelona needed that restart. The club had not been properly managed during the last decade and the consequences now are vivid. The greatest player of the club had to leave, the new signings have been not registered yet. Anyway, that is Barca and the club will find a solution. The team played well against Juventus and that is a promising start of the season, although the game was not an official one.
