Riqui Puig has a dream debut for FC Barcelona

first_imgBarcelona product Riqui Puig, was the main attraction in his club’s Copa del Rey 4-1 victory against Cultural Leonesa. He gave a spectacular assist.With pretty much all the bigger names eagerly watching from the stands, academy product Riqui Puig presented himself to the world in Barcelona’s Copa del Rey second leg against Cultural Leonesa.The tiny Catalan midfielder is arguably one of the biggest sensations the club has to offer from La Masia alongside Carles Aleña, this Wednesday was his official first match with Barcelona’s major squad as Ernesto Valverde gave him a good half an hour to show his talents to the world.Puig’s impact was quick, he set Denis Suarez up for the club’s fourth goal of the night with an out of this world assist that made us all long for the days when Iniesta or Xavi played for the club.The kid is the spitting image (playing style-wise) of both of these players, it seems like the club has found two amazing new talents who can help the club move forward and continue the tradition of that beloved tiki-taka style that could even convince Guardiola to return someday.His ball control, vision, and position on the field are a sign that he will be important for the club in the upcoming years.Gol de Denis Suarez y asistencia de Riqui Puig 4-1 pic.twitter.com/lyUtByNOEc— Pol Muñoz (@PolMb10) December 5, 2018Puig was the absolute sensation after the match due to his beautiful assist, but other players also shined against Cultural Leonesa.Denis Suarez scored a couple of great goals, Munir opened the score sheet during the first half, and Malcom also contributed with a header but he left the field with a nasty sprained ankle that worried everybody at the Camp Nou.Carles Aleña also played a fairly decent full match, he complemented very well with Oriol Busquets but mostly with Puig and Sergio Busquets when both players were inside the pitch.During the final thirty minutes of the game, we could see a very fluent FC Barcelona that left everybody happy at the Camp Nou.“It’s a debut I dreamed about,” said Puig through the FC Barcelona official website right after the final whistle.”A win and an assist on top of how well the team played. I used to come to the Camp Nou when I was three years old, imagining what it would be like to play here.”David Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.”Ernesto has given me the opportunity and the reality is a dream come true,” he added.Riqui Puig tras su debut en partido oficial: “Al principio me sudaban las manos y me dolía la barriga. Tenía la sensación de estar en el FIFA”. @ellarguero #CopadelRey pic.twitter.com/zsoyk4gyWw— Adrià Albets (@AdriaAlbets) December 5, 2018Even the manager approved of Riqui’s dream debut for FC Barcelona, as he explained that he thinks we have a very complete player under our noses who looks like he could do great things in La Liga.The most important thing to remember about Riqui, is that we are talking about a player who is one of the fiercest FC Barcelona fans you will ever come across.There are many stories about Catalan players from La Masia who were linked to the club since they were little kids, Riqui’s story is no different as he has been close to Barça since he was practically born and he fulfilled a childhood dream with this Wednesday’s performance.Also, Puig was initially rejected by the club due to his short height and small body composition but the club decided to ultimately keep him because they remembered how well they have done with short guys in the club.You will do well to remember his name, because Riqui Puig is one of the most sparkling appearances that FC Barcelona has experienced in quite a long time and he came here to stay.Riqui Puig, todo clase. Si jugase en el Ajax ya valdría 80M !!! pic.twitter.com/rkyzOSle68— Barçavip (@jordi2039) December 3, 2018What do you think about Riqui Puig’s assist to Denis Suarez against Cultural Leonesa?
