Guardiola shows faith in youngsters

Núria Barnils

The Barça B players called up to pres-season training with the first team squad under Pep Guardiola are all very excited about the challenge facing them and are determined to make the most of their chances.

For a number of the players this is the first time that they have worked under Guardiola and it’s clear that the boss is held in great esteem by the youngsters.

Step by step

For Sergi Roberto, this is the first time he’s trained with the first team and he’s determined to make the most this latest step in his career: “a year ago I was with the youth team, now I’m with Barça B and that’s just one step away from making it into the first team” .

Guardiola opening doors

We all work hard and are excited at the prospect of making it into the first team. We know he values the youngsters”. Fontàs also believes that the young players would only have half the chance of breaking through with another manager at the club.

Last year

It’s good to see that we’ve got through another year and this time we are coming with more experience”.

Pep Guardiola took 11 players to the training camp in London last year, and five of them are repeating that experience this year: Edu Oriol, Dalmau, Fontàs, Muniesa and Jonathan dos Santos. Guardiola also took Muniesa, Fontàs and Jonathan dos Santos on the US Tour.
