The coach gave him all his trust
Luis Enrique and Samuel Umtiti finally know each other personally. Before the day of the presentation, they had only talked over the phone, but on Friday, the same day as the player's presentation, Luis Enrique invited him to his desk of the Ciutat Esportiva, according to Sport.
The Blaugrana coach gave him all his trust and reminded him that there was no rush for him to have. Indeed, he advised him to not put more pressure on himself than necessary, one of the major problems of the Barça centre-backs in recent years.
Umtiti, aged 22, arrives as a quality substitute for Piqué and Mascherano. We will see what role Luis Enrique gives to him. His importance could grow if he is patient and works well.
