21st Century Cracks: Éric García, Pep’s Right Eye

first_imgIn addition, although he is still in U19 age, he has become a fixture for Luis de la Fuente in U21 (he has played five games). The coach trusts him so much that even He enters the pools to be on the list of 18 of the Olympic Games. In 2020 he had few options, but in 2021, a more mature year, things will change.Beyond its quality, another of its secrets lies in its environment. His agent is Iván de la Peña and after each meeting they have long phone calls to analyze each move. This helps him grow football and, incidentally, keep his feet on the ground. Because if there is something that characterizes Éric, in addition to his talent, it is his humility … His adaptation to the club, at only 16 years old, surprised even those who had bet so much on him. In his first year he became the captain of the U18 team in the League and U19 in the Youth League. A new language, another country … but the same leadership as always when he stepped on the grass.

Manchester City came for him and Éric accepted the offer. A risky bet for a 16-year-old boy that added to the flight of talents that the Blaugrana have been experiencing in their quarry in recent years. He is a central defender with hierarchy, with a vision inappropriate for his age and very reliable in all actions.Time has proved the footballer right, because City made the determined bet that he would have liked Barcelona to make. He signed a five-year contract (until 2022) and, above all, gave him opportunities to grow athletically. Guardiola, for whom Éric has become a ‘right eye’, wants to polish him to make him a central defender top. That is why he made his debut with only 17 years old in the first team, in the Carabao Cup against Leicester. “Play as someone 25,” Pep said after that game. Whenever he is asked about the young Spaniard, he praises him…last_img read more
