Why is 'The Monster' Faye yet to get a look by Xavi? Barca B coach gives advice to youngster

Mikayil 'The Monster' Faye is doing remarkably well with Barca Athletic this season. He's also proven he's a defender who understands the art of goalscoring with goals in back-to-back games for Barca B.

However, Faye is yet to get a look at the first team as Xavi has chosen Pau Cubarsi to make the jump from Barca B.

For Barca B gaffer Rafa Marquez, Faye has everything a defender needs to succeed but he needs to work on his concentration before hoping for a leap into the senior team.

"He [Faye] has unique conditions that make him different from many [defenders]," Marquez said.

"He has great potential: he is fast, he is strong, he moves well with his head, he has a good left foot. Normally, you don't find so many left-footed centre-backs, so you have to keep working on him.

"I think he has the conditions, but perhaps he needs a little more concentration.

"He doesn't relax in certain moments of the game. But he is a great profile to continue working on and I hope that one day he can have the opportunity in the first team," the coach said.

Faye has played 21 games for Barca B and has helped them keep five clean sheets. The fact is that the Senegalese defender is already 19 and could decide to leave Barca if he continues to be ignored with the first team.
