Valverde: Roberto and Samper Enter My Plan
Barcelona coach Mario Ernesto Valverde admitted that Sergi Roberto and Sergi Samper went into his plan.
Samper underwent a loan period in Granada last season, but he did not get enough playing time there. On the other hand, Roberto is a transfer target from Manchester United, with the player apparently ready to find opportunities to play at other clubs.
Valverde revealed that he had already discussed with both players, and stated that both players remain in the coaching plan.
“I’ve spoken to him [Samper],” the coach told the reporter. “He just came from borrowing in Granada, and he did not get the time to play as he or the club wanted.”
“Here, he will have fewer minutes to play. I’m talking about the possibility of him becoming a great player in the future. ”
“[Roberto] is an important player for our team, and he is definitely a player I can count on.”
“He was an important player last season, and he will still get that status this season. He is a versatile player, and he can play in many positions. “
