Abde Ezzalzouli was the best news that FC Barcelona -RCD Espanyol left last weekend. The Moroccan jumped onto the field in the second half of the game and was the best of the Barcelona team in the time he was on the pitch. He started at half-time and it was a nightmare for the left side of the ‘parakeet’ team, facing every time he had a chance and leaving several times in one on one from the right wing of Barça.
The one from Beni Medal had already made his debut with the first team several games before, against Alavés more specifically. Sergi Barjuan, who knew him from the subsidiary, gave him the alternative during his brief stay on the elders’ bench and Xavi Hernandez It seems that it will give continuity. He also played against Celta de Vigo and is expected to re-enter the squad against Villarreal for this Saturday’s match.
It must be said that the winger arrived at Barcelona this past summer from Hercules for only 2 million euros to reinforce Barça B. But what was not known was that to do so he rejected an economically superior proposal that came to him from the capital of Spain. . Real Madrid, according to ‘Mundo Deportivo’, wanted to take over his services and pressed until the end in order to ‘steal’ it from the Barça team. Luckily, the footballer chose to play at the Camp Nou.
Abde, who seems to have the dream of dressing as a Blaugrana, ruled out a Madrid proposal that supposedly improved the conditions offered to him from Barcelona. For its part, Hercules did not give up and only sold what was then the greatest promise of its quarry for its termination clause. Abde’s desire was what made the difference and that is why it was Barça through Ramon Planes who ended up taking the cat to the water.
Abde could be important in the coming weeks
In the absence of Ansu Fati, the irregularity of Memphis Depay and the physical doubts left by Ousmane Dembélé, Ezzalzouli could be important for the next few weeks. He has a lot of dribbling, he’s fast, unbalanced and can play right and left indistinctly. If ‘Dembouz’ does not have more physical problems, it is likely that both will share the field in an upcoming meeting, since Xavi loves this type of extreme and Barcelona needs vertigo up.
