MORIBA'S APPEARANCES FOR LEIPZIG?
It must be stated that Moriba, who was a Barcelona B player, was liked by Ronald Koeman. Moriba even played ahead of Riqui Puig, which indicates that he was trusted and highly rated at Barcelona. However, his current situation at RP Leipzig isn't a pleasant one. Note that he wasn't in the match squad during Leipzig's games against Bayern Munich & FC Koln. Furthermore, he was on the bench during the game between Hertha Berlin and Manchester City.
