Firpo far from Messi, Dembele and Umtiti side by side: secrets behind Barca's locker room exposed in 1 minute
Barcelona is the greatest club in the world, and to keep perfect chemistry between the players, you have to take care of their environment.
- In the new season, Barca's newcomer Junior Firpo will have his locker placed on the far side of Messi, likely because of the Spaniard's insulting tweets dated back to 2012 and addressed to Leo.
- As for Messi, the captain's locker is placed in the most convenient part possible in order to see all the players and to visually control what happens.
- Leo's locker will be just near Todibo's because of the Frenchman's No. 6 which was previously worn by Xavi (Messi and Xavi often used to have "neighbouring" lockers).
- Antoine Griezmann is close to Barca's influential players Ter Stegen and Alba, which hints at Frenchman's future importance to the club.
- For Moussa Wague, his new locker companions are Samuel Umtiti and Nelson Semedo as the Senegalese is expected to learn from the defenders' experience.
- After Malcom's exit, there's one more locker available, right near Neto...We all know what it means.
