Five worst Barcelona players this season in 2021/22
While the whole Barcelona squad have been poor this season, there are a few notable exceptions. Aubameyang, as usual, has been brilliant this season but apart from him there are only players like Depay who have been somewhat good. Let us take a look at five worst Barcelona players this season.
5. Eric Garcia
Eric Garcia was brought in from Manchester City and he joined Barcelona in the summer of 2021. He made his debut against Real Sociedad. Barca thought Garcia would add spark to the squad but he failed to deliver.
The centre-back has been so since his arrival at Camp Nou. He looked completely out of his depth. He has been a weak defender and not good in possession either.
He received eight yellow cards and been sent off twice in 36 starts in all competitions. Opponent players regularly target him with runs and balls in behind.
4. Sergino Dest
Sergino Dest was signed from the Dutch club Ajax for an initial €21 million fee plus a further €5 million.
Dest made his debut for Barcelona in October against Sevilla. He also became the first American to appear for Barcelona in La Liga. He scored his first goal for Barcelona in a 4–0 away win over Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League.
After the departure of Koeman, Xavi joined Barca as head coach. Xavi preferred Dani Alves at right-back after seeing the downfall of Dest. The 38-year-old usurping Dest to right-back is even being mentioned is embarrassing for the American. He struggled in adapting to Xavi’s style.
He will need to be replaced soon.
3. Clement Lenglet
Lenglet joined Barcelona in 2018 when they triggered his release clause of €35 million. His first Barca appearance came against Sevilla in Supercopa and La Liga debut came against Girona. He has played four seasons for Barcelona so far and this season, he made 27 appearances and Xavi tried him on the bench. He scored at least one goal in his first three season but this season, he failed to find the net.
He played for just 1235 minutes in 2021/22 which is the lowest in his all four seasons. Lenglet was handed five yellow cards this season and failed to provide good possession.
He probably best reflects the crisis in identity under Xavi as he does end up the scoring but in general, he loses too many balls, does not make himself available for passes and is very poorly disciplined.
2. Adama Traore
Adama Traore made his second debut for Barcelona and he returned to Camp Nou in winter 2022. Barcelona also signed Aubameyang from Arsenal this winter but you will see a big difference between these two.
The former Wolves winger didn’t impress in his second return at Barca. Aubameyang was the joint-most high scorer for Barcelona this season and he is the best player of the season for the Catalan giants. The story is totally reversed in the case of Traore who struggled under Xavi.
Traore made 17 appearances for Barcelona in 2021/22 and failed to score a single goal. He has not been able to play at the highest level this whole season and soon needs to be replaced.
1. Ferran Torres
Yes, we could have picked a player. There are not a shortage of bad players in Barcelona this season. However, we realise that if the whole squad is underperforming then the problem is probably with their training, coaching and drilling. But Xavi did a very good job who came at the midway of the season and Barcelona made comeback by finishing second in La Liga.
The top of the name in our worst Barcelona players this season is Ferran Torres who joined the Spanish club from Manchester City. He struggled in Premier League and made just 4 appearances in City’s successful campaign. In December 2021, both Barcelona and Manchester City confirmed completed his permanent move to Barcelona. He scored seven goals this season but still, we couldn’t see the best version of Torres. Hope we find the much better version of the Spaniard in the upcoming season. Watch & Bet Here =>
