Sergi Roberto has been one of the most underrated players at Barcelona for the past five years now. Xavi Hernandez has also appointed him as one of the captains this season. In a recent fixture against Cadiz, the Spanish international delivered a match winning performance. The Manager was full of praise for the versatile player and has called his criticism as the most unfair thing in football.

The Spanish international has played in multiple positions over the years for the club. He was deployed as a central midfielder in the game against Cadiz. However, he regularly fills in at the full back position for the Blaugrana. He has always performed well in whatever position he has been deployed and the fact that he receives criticism despite this quality is actually shocking.

The Spaniard has been one of the most important squad players for Barcelona across the years. Despite numerous managerial changes, the player has always maintained his role in the squad. He is also an important voice in the dressing room as is evident from his influence on the players.

Barcelona has found their form after the FIFA World Cup

The Blaugrana started well under the leadership of club legend, Xavi Hernandez last season. However, the team was under the microscope for their poor performances in the UEFA Champions League earlier this season. As a result, Barcelona have dropped down to the UEFA Europa League this season again.

However, the Spanish giants have been in good form ever since the World Cup break. The club sits on top of La Liga with a healthy lead and also came back strongly against Manchester United in Europe. A lot of credit is due for the players who have utilized the break well and come together as a team. However, special mention should be made for club leaders Sergio Busquets, Sergi Roberto and Jordi Alba.

The three Spanish stalwarts have been at the club since the former glory days of Messi-Suarez-Neymar. They have been through thick and thin at Barcelona and done everything on and off the pitch. The seniors have marshalled their troops well and it is evident from the performances on the field. Let’s just hope that the club can turn this form into some silverware this season!!
