Setién ‘transforms’ Arthur

first_imgThe arrival of Setién allowed rocket fire to the radicals of the possession style. “Arthur will now be indisputable,” he took for granted. The numbers have said the exact opposite. Attacked by pubic problems that are not new and that left him out of combat at the end of last season and before the end of 2019 in this one, Arthur is only playing in small doses with Setién who, however, has been able to find him a good provisional role.Arthur has only played 166 minutes in seven games. His only appearance as a starter, in Valencia, was a fiasco. He was an inconsequential player who was shipwrecked and to which the rhythm of the game passed over. Barça was much better with Arturo Vidal on the pitch. Arthur seemed somewhat disappointed. Already in the game against Ibiza he had not been especially active in the 20 minutes given by the Cantabrian coach. Accepted that his physical condition is not the best, and that it is costing him to become a footballer who supports the rigors of European football (the club is demanding more professional behavior and the player has already had to ask for forgiveness twice publicly), and above all that endures the parties at a high intensity level, Setién has decided to reinvent him while he gets fit. In the last four games (Leganés, Levante, Athletic and Betis) he has played 19 ‘, 10’, 21 ‘and 33’ respectively. In all contributed something. A goal against Leganés, control against the granotas, a golden assistance to Messi that the Argentine could not turn into a goal in San Mamés; and, finally, a few minutes of quality at Villamarín to keep the ball and drive transitions with 2-3.Arthur is fatigued too soon too often. As if he beat the rhythm of the games and was not quite physically fine. But in these moments he has taken his quality for a walk and, waiting for him to recover some exuberance in his football, it is important that he offer a service to the team. Also, for now, he has found an accommodation and that is something. That leaving that provisional role to be a player with hierarchy from the beginning depends on Arthur himself. It is obvious that he speaks the language that Setién likes.last_img read more
