The Barça B will be one of the teams of Second B who will compete in the promotion tie this weekend at Don Benito, Badajoz. The team trained by Garcia Pepper you will see them with him UCAM Murcia, and for this he wants to have all his players available. Although they have not played with him for a long time.
It is the case of Oscar Mingueza. A footballer of the first team for all purposes throughout the season, he has decided to go down again with the subsidiary to help them for this match. Koeman has given its ‘OK’ (not so with Ilaix Moriba, whom he needs to supply De Jong against him Celtic) and what has been one of the great discoveries of this year will pass from playing in First and Champions to doing it with Second B teams.
Mingueza has played 38 games with the first team, with a balance of 25 wins, 6 draws and 7 losses. In addition, he has scored two goals.
Many voices have been raised against this situation. Mingueza He only played one match this season with Barça B, the first, and since then he was called up by the first team. The center-back has earned Koeman’s confidence and although some details are still missing, he has earned at least one spot in the team’s rotation.
That is why there are voices that point out that it is unfair for a starter in major European and national matches to now play with non-professional footballers. There are voices that point, directly, that Barça adulterates the competition with players who, in addition, do not pass the economic hardships that those of Second B.
Mingueza has just renewed a few weeks ago his contract with Barcelona, now fully professional, until 2023, with a clause of 100 million euros.
