Why new African signing Mbacke still hasn't made Barca debut – explained

Barcelona managed to secure a last-minute signing for Barca Atletic as Mamadou Mbacke (or Mamadou Fall) joined their ranks.

However, the club failed to register the centre-back in time, so he can't play for any Barca side until January.

This is exactly the reason why the 20-year-old trains with the first team these days. He has received some game time in the latest friendlies between Barcelona and Barca Atletic. Luckily, he still looks good and both coaches are said to be delighted with the defender.

Mbacke is expected to form a centre-back pairing with 'the Monster' Mikayil Faye once he can be registered for Barca Atletic. There is a chance Xavi will eventually call the defenders up for the first team due to their high performance level.

Mamadou Mbacke joined Barcelona from LA Galaxy on loan in September.
