a little more than two years, in the city of sports of Borussia Moenchengladbach, the club played a meeting of the league of the Youth League ended by defeat (1-3). In the crowd were a large part of the sports area and a small entourage of the directive, enraptured by the personality and delivery on the left side, Marc Cucurella (Alella, Barcelona, spain; 20 years), footballer who played in combustion and with the radio on because there was no who will shut up on the lawn. “What have you seen? That kid will go far, is very good," noted a manager before joining the fellowship meal sponsored by the UEFA to make the youth of both sets after the conclusion of the duel; "what has it all to finish in the first team”. The words of a few and the feelings conveyed Cucu [as he is known in the locker room] is echoed in the club, so that the technical secretariat does not quickly improve the contract. “It was a way of saying that he wanted at home, that we were outstanding in their evolution to see if he gave the definitive step”, pointing from the offices of the Camp Nou; “but I knew that it also included the option to yield to progress as it was if you had no chances with the first team”. And not the had. But yes in Eibar and with that he reached to tear apart this Saturday to Madrid, every time that he gave two of the three goals, and led the other with a center that was resolved in the rejection.MORE INFORMATION The Eibar abuses to the Madrid Solari: “The Eibar he scored two balls; we were not to the height”
earlier this summer, Cucurella should pass the test of the cotton with the first barca team during the preseason. “The entity asked him to wait because they had doubts about his future and it was decided that at the end of the american tour, would take a decision”, explained from the environment of the player; “and Cucu accepted because his intention always was to succeed at Barcelona”. It Asyabahis happened, however, that Valverde chose Miranda as a possible replacement for Jordi Alba, a decision in line with the claims of the new direction of the sport, which meant that the side had to take a leap to be able to exploit. Neither protested Cucurella, who had asked that he be allowed out of the club if not take the step, every time, refused to compete again on the Second B and had offers from Germany, Italy and Spain, all teams of the First that would have guaranteed him square and minutes. “Chose the Eibar, last minute offer, because he thought that his football could marry with the proposal of the technical Mendilibar”, glide from the inner circle of the player. He, himself, stated in his presentation in society: “the club Is established and with a team that sticks with my features. Intense, with possession on the attack... I Hope I can help and continue to grow here,” she said upon arrival. Something that is not doubted in Ipurua because the technical secretariat had been seen 16 times live prior to the formal offer of cession —assuming all of the payment of the tab— and pocketing a purchase option at the end of the season, for more than Cucu remaining two years of contract with Barca and has a termination clause of 30 million.
“Play from left-back at the club, it is very difficult to” admit from the city sports club; “and to achieve this, you have to be able to generate a danger once it crosses the middle of the field and improve on their technical performance”. Something that got in front of the Madrid, although he acted of left midfielder ahead of Jose Angel and not as a carrilero. “Is that you have more vocation offensive defensive”, pointing from the club. As well, paired with Odriozola, ate his band. Started with a center that ended up on the feet of Escalante after a rejection and then to goal. He followed with a steal in the field opposite, raised his head and put the ball to Sergi Enrich, who shot to Courtois. And ended with a centre from the bottom line that finished off Kike García. “You have all been to a tremendous height, but perhaps the least known to the people is the youngest, a Cucu, which is surprising. Has never played as an end and is giving us much,” agreed Mendilibar at the end of the shock, proud to no end. Two assists and a half in six centres, four chances created —more than any other—, seven recoveries and 90 minutes for the second time in the League, now that it has already added two consecutive matches of holder. “We are thrilled with its evolution”, welcome from the Barcelona in reference to the player that you sisaron at Espanyol in 2012, and has passed through all the categories of the Spanish national team up to under-19. And more if you are removing to Madrid.
