 This week we have a very talented young player in  Sergi Samper.

Samper has been tipped to make the Barcelona 1st team for quite sometime.

I was first informed of Samper by a friend who is a diehard Barcelona fan a while back.   He loves the guy’s style and so do I!

Ever since then I have made sure I watched Sergi whenever I could, it’s pretty obvious he should be a key player for Barcelona in future years…Huge Talent!!

If not at Barcelona…. he will definitely go to another big club abroad in my opinion.

I love his excellent ball control, agility and quick feet.

He has the ability to play his way out of trouble in tight spaces, he can worm his way out of most situations, just a class act.

His passing and vision are exceptionally good …he is great at distributing the ball to his teammates, usually coming deep collecting it from the defence.

His passing really is on another level, he makes it look so easy just picking runners out ahead of him.

He is also very good at driving forward with the ball, then making the correct pass, as his decision making is also exceptional.

You can just tell Sergi has that class, everything seems so natural for him, his composure is crazy good.

Another thing I like… is his quick change of direction to fool opposition players!  It’s effective and he ends up making space for himself.

Defensively he gets stuck in and reads the game well.  Not the strongest of players but he is still young and can develop that.

A potential future world class holding midfielder in the making no doubt, no wonder players like Alex Song struggled to get a game with all the talent they possess. 

He has had to be patient as it’s really hard too get a chance at Barcelona… but they definitely have one of the best talents coming through in Sergi Samper.

He’s made only a few appearances for the Barcelona first team so far, but i’m sure he will be a key player one day at Barca or another top club.

STRENGTHS : Passing – Vision – Ball Control – Agility – Technique – Composure
