- Firpo has joined Barca from Real Betis.
- So far, the left-back has only appeared in five matches.
- Abidal reckons Junior has a bright future ahead.
Perhaps there isn't a better person to comment on the Junior Firpo's future than Eric Abidal, who played in the same position as Firpo. In his interview with Diario Sport, Barca's sporting director shared his thoughts on the 22-year-old.
"I don't know if he started badly. If we're talking about performances, Barca is not Real Betis. Barca play position-based football and he has to understand and adapt. Play with and without the ball.
"He's a player with a lot of potential. He could be one of the best left-backs in the world. I always tell him that he must work hard and be aware of the (style of) play. He's going to get better, for sure. It's always difficult to get started at Barca."
Check out the behind the scenes of Firpo's presentation at Camp Nou:
Junior Firpo joined the Catalans from Real Betis. So far, he has appeared in five games while scoring one goal. Unfortunately, he missed a big chunk of games through injury.
