Generation Z brake
Ansu Fati (10-31-2002). 14 games; 442 minutes and 3 goals.Its glittering appearance caused an earthquake back in August. It was 12 minutes against Betis that together with the goals against Osasuna and Valencia drew the appearance of a new star. In December he managed to become the youngest player to score in a Champions League game, but he has only played 34 minutes since November 9 and adds two months without starting. A full stop. It is true that a couple of physical mishaps have conditioned their end of the year, suffering, mainly from discomfort in the patellar tendon, the result of being still in a period of growth. The trident, in addition, has begun to carburize with a Griezmann who has struggled to fit. We will have to see from now on the confidence that his talent receives from Quique Setién. The Generation Z of LaLiga goes through the worst of its moments of the exercise. The young people who started the season willing to hit the table to position themselves as the main characters of the most powerful teams in the competition have entered a twilight phase. It could be seen as that NBA’s own Rookie Wall, when mental and physical consistencies are still not able to regularly wrap the quality and courage that the player in question treasures. Be that as it may Rodrygo and Vinicius do not reach a cruising speed in Real Madrid. João Felix, meanwhile, has returned from the Super Cup in Arabia with the worst face since signing for Atlético. In that tournament Ansu Fati only played two minutes, nine if we attend the last month and a half of Barcelona. Only Ferran Torres in Valencia maintains its strongest version, being indisputable to Celades and providing tangible and intangible hierarchy footballer. Vinicius (12-07-200). 17 games; 735 minutes and 2 goals.His football still offers no convictions to Zidane. His irruption during the final depressive last season at Real Madrid presaged more, but his weakness towards the goal and his inconsistency park him. Thus, the incumbent in the second part of the previous campaign has played a role of agitator in the final parts of the matches. Little for what was foreshadowed. Needs improvement. Rodrygo (9-1-2001). 15 games; 844 minutes and 6 goals.The Brazilian wants to rebel at a time when every minute is gold. Hazard continues to leave. The season began in Castilla and starred in a majestic staging in late October and early November. With Madrid hesitating in the Champions League, he vaccinated the Galatasaray with a hat-trick seconded with the goal opener against Leganés. His goal-to-goal instinct placed him clearly ahead of Vinicius. The low Hazard opened the doors of the eleven, but does not end up being a fixed for Zidane. You need more arguments. The personality with which he threw the penalty in the shootout against Atlético could be one of them. João Felix. (10-11-1999). 21 games; 1,571 minutes and 4 goals.The Portuguese is the most expensive signing in the history of Atlético, an investment that has the club in suspense. He has had a cold and the Super Cup was the most obvious proof of that. His amazing pre-season adventures are in danger of being in fireworks. It transmits signals and sensations of not yet having finished digesting Simeone’s style and, playing everything, does not decide frequently or regularly tilt the matches of the red and white side. It comes on tiptoe in many games, with less frequent flashes. It needs to be activated urgently so as not to suffer the same fate as other talents that have recently gone through the team. There is raw material. Ferran Torres (02-29-2000). 23 games; 1,590 minutes and 4 goals.The exception that confirms the rule. Begins to be a hierarchy player in Valencia, despite his youth. Unquestionable and solid, for Celades it is as important as Rodrigo or Parejo. Just a year ago he achieved his first official goal with the Valencia shirt and his evolution does not stop. Seated, the club will work on a contract extension with which to strengthen one of its pillars of the future.
