Fermin Lopez: Destined for Success

About Football Express India - Indian Super League - I-League

Players across a range of positions, from the attacking areas all the way to the defensive structure, are still vying for a spot in the starting eleven. Young players from the academy, though, may have the hardest time breaking through at such a prestigious club. One example is the instance of a young person from La Masia who is extremely brilliant.

Pre-season Performance

During the preseason tour of the United States, 20-year-old Fermin Lopez proved to be a complete sensation. Many people who had the opportunity to see El Clasico still vividly remember his highly lauded performance against Real Madrid, praised by teammates and coaches.
The player’s accolades turned out to not be in vain and instead felt completely deserved. He scored a fantastic goal from a distance. The teenager has subsequently made sporadic appearances for Barcelona in the official 2023–24 season.

Fermin Lopez Determined to Enter Squad

However, Fermin Lopez continues to work hard and be determined to achieve a slot back in the first squad. Most of all, he is absolutely patient and has no complaints, according to Spanish source SPORT.

Xavi himself especially mentioned the kid in hopes of inspiring him:

“Fermín is a discovery; he can help us a lot. He’s a player to be reckoned with, and he can be important.”

Will Require Time and Experience

However, the young athlete’s time at Barcelona Atletic has not exactly been pleasant. The team dismissed him after he received a red card in his first game back, forcing him to serve out the remainder of his suspension by barring him from both the first team and the subsidiary squads.


Rafa Marquez, the head coach of Barcelona Atletico, and Xavi Hernandez are both aware of the player’s need to develop and acquire experience. Given that the player has extended his contract with FC Barcelona through 2027, there is little question that he will be a crucial component of Barcelona Atletico going forward, as well as the first team.
