The lack of strikers, with the injuries of Luis Suarez Y I trembled, and the lack of reinforcement that can accompany Messi and Griezmann in the next matches he has forced Quique Setién to pull Barça B, even if it is not from a youth player.
Among the 18 summoned by the Cantabrian coach to play against the Getafe of his ‘intimate enemy’ Jose Bordalás is the amazing King Manaj, newcomer to the Blaugrana entity.
So newcomer that not even a month ago you saw the elastic blaugrana. Manaj, Albanian (first in a call of the Blaugrana club in its history) of 22 years, he signed for Barça from Albacete on January 20 for 700,000 euros. Behind him, 41 games with the Manchego entity and 10 goals, although it was usual substitute for Roman Zozulya. In his only two games with Barça B, a somewhat irregular balance: a goal and an expulsion.
“We still do not know everything well because it takes a short time and is in a period of adaptation, but its precision is extraordinary and sure it can help us,” Setién explained at a press conference. Manaj will be the only striker on the culé bench.
The complete call consists of: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Piqué, Rakitic, Busquets, Arthur, Messi, Neto, Griezmann, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, De Jong, Vidal, Umtiti, Junior, Ansu Fati, Araujo and Manaj.
