It has no secrets, it does not deceive you. It may not have a great shot or a great dribble, which is not the fastest or the most skillful. But there are very few who can match him in mental strength because he faces and overcomes any challenge as he did in Nacional, Groningen, Ajax, Liverpool and Barça"
Although it is at odds with the goal in the Champions League, since it counts two goals in the last 22 games, in LaLiga it is a cyclone, even though the story tells that at the beginning of the course it must regain its cachet because it is difficult to define it.

That's why he has already made two stops with the matches of the national team, and since Barça hissed that, given the good result of treatment with stem cells, it is likely to stop after the derby against Espanyol to return after Christmas . "With that, it will be perfect," they say. But for the match against Espanyol, as always, will be in the first battalion.
