Xavi Hernandez took charge of the Barcelona training session for the first time, the Spanish manager will be looking forward to the next game after the international break, though he met with some of the players who failed to join their teams on international duty this month. In this article, I will be showing you the 2 players that might become a regular starter under Xavi Hernandez.
1. Samuel Umtiti (Defender)
You could notice that Samuel Umtiti is struggling at Barcelona after he returned back from his injury, Umtiti is one of the top performers in the World Cup 2018, Ronald Koeman prefer to start Eric Garcia or Araujo ahead of him, despite that he is fully fit to play. Xavi Hernandez took charge of the Barcelona training today and he met with Samuel Umtiti, you could see the smile on his face. In my own opinion, Xavi Hernandez will give him the chance to prove himself because Gerard Pique is not getting any younger, Samuel Umtiti has a lot to offer and I believe that he will become a regular starter under Xavi Hernandez.
2. Riqui Puig (Midfielder)
I would say that Riqui Puig is not lucky under Ronald Koeman, the Spanish youngster is a top talent, but Koeman snubbed him and pick Gavi and Nico ahead of him. Not that Puig is not playing, but he is not a regular starter. Puig could have left Barcelona on a loan deal, but he decided to stay and fight for his place, I think that Xavi Hernandez will make him a better player and he might become a regular starter. He is only 22 years old and he has a lot to offer.
