Gavi

Youngsters has always been a specific preference at FC Barcelona, but even something intrinsically excellent may be overdone. Barcelona prodigy and Spanish wonderkid Pablo Gavira, better known as Gavi has overworked himself.

Barcelona coach Xavi could bench Gavi for remaining matches

The 18-year-old Golden Boy Award winner and current FC Barcelona no.30 has worked tirelessly to an extreme extent this season. This is a similar to Pedri’s deployment under Ronald Koeman in the 2020/2021 season. Pedri participated a staggering 96% of games across all competitions. As a result Pedri felt too much fatigue and resulting in multiple muscular issues. FC Barcelona would be well to exercise greater cautiousness with Gavi. Barca must learn from their previous mistakes. The young Spaniard has already accumulated a percentage of 94.73% throughout all competitions for club and nation in terms of games played.

While this is an accomplishment in some ways, it is also certain to be a case of carelessness on the part of FC Barcelona. While the youngster has thus avoided injury, it would be unwise to explore the limits of that possibility. According to reports, if FC Barcelona wins the La Liga Santander title early, Xavi Hernandez will rest Gavi. Moreover Xavi will play a rotational squad for the remaining games. Furthermore, additional matters concerning Gavi must be addressed, such as the registration of his new contract with La Liga.

As things stand, the Spanish league does not recognise or approve of his new contract in light of Barcelona’s financial problems. Hence the player was even stripped of his newly acquired no.6 shirt and reverted back to his prior number 30. Despite ongoing rumours linking the youngster to Bayern Munich or Chelsea if he become a free agent, Barca is hopeful to retain him. However there have been statements and hints of assurance from both FC Barcelona and La Liga itself that the player will undoubtedly be registered. Therefore Gavi will continue to represent the Catalans for years to come.
