Eight new players

Jaume Marcet/Sergi Nogueras

For Wednesday’s match, Frank Rijkaard has called upon 15 players from Barça B. It is a great opportunity for the young players to show their quality.

There were a number of new faces at Monday’s training session. www.fcbarcelona.cat has put together a series of profiles of the new players that are joining the first team for the first time. The following is a presentation of the eight players that are set to make their debuts tonight against Girona.

David Córcoles

Arrived this season from Valencia B. In fact, given the alarming number of injuries suffered by the first team last season, he even managed to make his Champions League debut. Córcoles is 22 years old and is a speedy defender and great goalscorer. He made his debut for Barça B in their first game of the season at Premià.

Dimas Delgado

This midfielder travelled with the first team to Saint Andrews and Asia before the season started. Dimas signed last season from Gramenet. He can play both as an inside right and central midfielder, or even full back. He will turn 24 in December.

Daniel Toribio

Joined Barça in 2003 and this is first year with Barça B. He is a well-built midfielder. Daniel Toribio was born on October 5, 1987, and is part of the Youth A side that won the league and cup double in 2005/06 along with the likes of Giovani, Bojan and Jeffren.

Emilio Guerra

One of the newest Barça B players, Emilio Guerra is 25 and a centre forward who was at Zaragoza B last season. He scored 42 goals in the Third Division, making him the top scorer in all national categories.

Xavi Torres

Just joined from Alicante, a side that narrowly missed out on promotion to Second A. He is making the most of his first few weeks at Barça, and has already proven his leadership qualities. Xavi Torres can play either as a central defender or in a more advanced position.

Víctor Espasandín

Played in Second A last season for Ponferradina. Espasandín turned 22 last March and is a left back. He has already shown his usefulness in the B team, covering the length of the pitch and also showing his class shooting and crossing ability.

José Manuel Rueda

Has risen up through the youth ranks at the club, where he had been for 7 years. Rueda is an attacking midfielder, although he has also played up front. He is skilful and makes penetrating runs at the tender age of 19 and in his first year with Barça B.

Eneko Fernández

23 years old and like Emilio Guerra has come to Barça from Zaragoza B. Eneko can play on either wing, and is a strong but mobile player, and a fine distributor of the ball.
