`Deulofeu 2004 - 2011
Note: Deulofeu was called to Spain U-19 ( Euro U-19 Qualifers).. he played some matches as a Sub, he just turned 17 last month!

VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLUHU2qcuY0&feature=player_embedded


Deulofeu polished to be like Messi


Deulofeu Gerard, a native of Riudarenes (Girona), is the jewel in the crown of FC Barcelona's youth system. After a somewhat difficult start in the club, their coaches and daily work have enabled him to lead a similar progression to that of Leo Messi, making it the largest promise of his club just turned 17.

Airam Weapons

In football, the position that is more comfortable Deulofeu is the far left, the place from which has the ability to bargain for both sides to his defense, can also play as a winger or right midfielder.

Gerard is right and noted for its speed, ease to overflow in one-one, verticality, and in this past year has added to his game the only feature that was missing, the ability to score goals ('s top scorer with 15 youth A targets).

Within the framework of the first team, could play on both sides of attack, resembling the game of Messi in its infancy. It's a special player, like Argentina, capable of unimaginable things.


"A player lethal and unpredictable"

Gerard, as defined by their coach in child A and Cadet B, Sánchez Fran "is a different player from the rest. In the beginning was very individualistic, which is inherent to its characteristics and is well that it is, but now knows which areas should be and what others do not. Is lethal in one on one and unpredictable. "

It is not easy to digest for a guy known only 12 years had already been hired by Nike in exchange for a large sum of money and that caused wars representatives to gain their services. Fortunately for Deulofeu and FC Barcelona, ​​the boy followed the steps prescribed by the club.

Inside Barca are aware that they are at a draft global star, so that from day pamper and polish the young Catalan end, aiming to take as an example of Gerard behavior Leo Messi, Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez to well able to exploit their talents in the field.

Barça B debut at age 16

Deulofeu 8 years ago came to the quarry Blaugrana, from the Penya Esportiva Bons Aires, club belonging to Girona. For the general public, "Deul" was released in 2006 in the Christmas Tournament Arona (Tenerife), where FC Barcelona was the champion and Gerard was named best player.

Thereafter always competed with older players, to debut a few weeks ago with Barça B of Luis Enrique just 16 years. After the meeting, the Spaniard said about Gerard that "it is still very young, you need to train and make it much attention to their coach in the juvenile Oscar Garcia. No rush to climb players, but we need to go checking Gerard feels that a more professional level, whether in training or competition official. "

Guardiola, attentive to developments


Pep Guardiola is a close, value their talent and try to take their progression in a manner as close as possible, there are several who have completed training with the first team despite his young age.

Gerard is international with the Spanish under 17, who was runner-up in Europe last summer. Despite being a year younger than the other players, became a key piece to lead Spain to the final. In a few months will have a new test with the red, under-17 World Cup played in Mexico.

The following video shows his best actions from his time at Barça B Alevín up his debut for Barcelona B. The future is yours, succeed and to do so in the Nou Camp will depend on him.

www.fcbarcelona.cat

The full squad for the game at Anoeta is: Valdés, Pinto, Alves, Piqué, Xavi, Villa, Messi, Mascherano, Keita, Sergio, Pedro, Milito, Afellay, Jeffren, Fontàs (26), Thiago (30), Montoya (40), Sergi Roberto (28) and Gerard Deulofeu (41).

yeah me 2.. hope he get a call for pre-season, so we get to see what he can do @ first team..

He was playing for Spain U-19 this week ( Euro U-19 qualifers) he played in 2 games as a sub..
Spain U-19 will play in Euro U-19 from 20 July until 1 August.. so if he was called again with Muniesa,S.Gomez,S.Roberto & Rafinha.. i'm afraid all these player we can't get to see them in this pre-season, which is very possible cuz 3 of these players are starters( Sergi Roberto, Sergi Gomez, Muniesa ) , Rafa was injured & this is why he wasn't called for the final Squad ( but now he is fit)!!

*RAFA ALCANTARA!!!

Words of praise for Rafa Alcántara(17, Barca B,Thiago's brother and Mazinho's "WC 1994 winner with Brazil" son!!)

Following Tuesday’s friendly at the Ciutat Esportiva between Barcelona B and the Brazilian national team, several members of the Brazil side highlighted the performance of one of the youngsters who himself has Brazilian roots: Rafa Alcántara (17). The younger brother of Thiago came into the match in the second half, and according to Catalan paper Sport, left quite an impression.


“I didn’t know about Rafa [before the match], but has left a very favourable impression. He is a player of high quality … you notice his Brazilian genes,” said Carlos Eduardo with a laugh.

“I didn’t know about him but it has been a positive surprise to see him play. We talked for a moment and I wish him every success,” said Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva. “Rafa has seemed to me very a fast and intelligent player with a great future,” were the words from the Rossoneri‘s Pato.

Finally, Rafael da Silva noted that Mazinho has produced ”a mine with his two children.” Two talents surely ready to explode onto the World scene.

BIO..
Born: 19th of February 1993
Height: 177cm
Nationality: Spanish
Position: Midfielder, he played as false 9 in some matches this season for U-19!

Rafa, like his brother Thiago, has spent last 4-5 years with the Barça cantera and is slowly developing into one of the promising midfielders. He has a fearsome shot and he likes to cut inside with his dribbling causing trouble to the opposition.
A one for the future as they say.

Soriano: “Barca saved my footballing career’


FC Barcelona B’s Jonathan Soriano gave an insight into his inner feelings about his past, present and future to ‘El Peridico’. The original can be found here.

Jonathan is a name synonymous with goals. The forward from El Pont de Vilomara, Barcelona, 25, had always highlighted a pre-disposition to score goals. For him, it was a highly prized art. As a youth player he could have chosen to go to England, Germany or Italy. Half the world doors were open to him but he declined. He stayed with Espanyol until he was let go two years ago. From being a ‘star’ without any bid forthcoming, that is, until he received a surprising call from Barca, Jonathan has managed to score 32 goals and is named as Segunda A’s top scorer. What a feat.

From being part of a First Division’s first team you took the decision to play in Segunda B [Third Division]. Very few people would have taken a step backward like that.

When I ended my last loan stint with Albacete, I was in a very bad situation. Espanyol and I parted ways at a point [in time] when I found myself without any bids forthcoming. I felt very alone, supported only by my family. It was bad. I was already contemplating about leaving, getting a job away from football, to hang up my boots. And then Barca was interested in me and I did not think twice.

Was it a brave decision, a step only a desperate footballer would take?

It was a relief. No team was interested in me except Barca… and Barca is Barca. Yes, I went back to playing in Segunda B, in a decision that many people just can’t comprehend. I see it as taking one small step back and then two forward. A courageous decision? Well, the truth is I don’t know. All I know is that I came here to train, to have fun, to live my profession, to get back into the world of football. I turned to smiling again, to score goals, to gain confidence… up to this day.

And you scored 22 goals in your first year in Segunda B, and is the top scorer in Segunda A with 32 goals.

Those goals showed that I was taking a step back in terms of the division [I played in] but it was a wise decision made by the club. I know playing up front for Barca I would get a lot more opportunities to score goals. But I must not be taking it easy after one good year.

Now you can send a message to the offices of Sant Adria [RCD Espanyol home].

No, I never did, although it may just be sending a lot of messages to different people. I need to keep on scoring goals. The best way for me to redeem myself is with those 32 goals, and with the assistance that I get, I’m sure I can play good game.

All the whistling directed at you when you stepped out on the Sant Adria pitch with Barca last year had to have hurt you.

It made me angry. I think those that whistled didn’t really know what actually happened to me. Espanyol gave me the boot. I was not seeking to get back into the first team or monetary gain.

The same people who threw you out are now opting for home-grown players.

It is sad, but talk of Espanyol’s youth system is a waste of time because there is no going back. I felt the way they treated me was not the best way to go about it, but I see that I was not alone. Recently I’ve seen how they have dismissed David Garcia, Chica and Coro. No, I was not the only one.

Speaking of the reserves, can you tell us the key to its success, third in its first year in the Segunda?

Well, picture a locker room where there are no stars and no distinction between the players. We are all part of a team, and if someone comes up from the junior squad they are treated like everyone else. We’re all playing as one.

Have it been using the same system as the first team?

It’s very difficult to play like the first team. We keep the idea but we don’t have the same kind of players. So we use our own individual attributes and add to the coach’s philosophy: ball at your feet and run at your opponent.

What role did Luis Enrique play in the team’s success?

Seems to me he has a very strong character. A true genius but is a nice guy. You can talk to him about anything. He is the first person who would stand up for a player. Of the 24 or 25 players in the squad, no one can be angry with him for we all had minutes this season.

How do you feel when you train with the first team?

It’s like a reward, a gift. Playing for Barca is very difficult. It seems easy but when you try to play it only then do you realise the game they are playing is a lot more difficult to execute than it looks.

Can you see yourself in Barca in the future?

Forgive me, but we are talking about the best team in the world here. We are talking about Messi, Villa, Pedro… a lot of internationals.

Are you saying that your future is away from Barca?

It was very important that the reserves had a good season for all of us are on the market. Playing here is a perfect showcase, but my progress here is not dependent on me because I still have one year left in my contract. I want to move forward and be a better player.

Have you thought about going abroad?

Yes. The football played here is the same the one played in Beijing, so I have no preferences. I will be listening to every proposal. Do I have a desire to return to the Primera? No. For I know what it is like to be playing in that division. I’m open to anything, and see what’s best for me and for the club. This year made me believe that I can make a living with this profession. No, I don’t want to consider leaving football [anymore]. I’m useless without it.

He's about 25-26 years of age, and if you watch his play it doesn't really suit Barca's play. In terms of quality, he was certainly probably a better option than Bojan and Jeffren at times, but his style doesn't really fit any position. He can't play as a false 9 and not as an inside forward either. He'll do really well elsewhere, the point was never for him to play for the first team really.

Nolito was the one more capable of promotion.

One thing is for sure, without those 2 and Enrique, Barca B will have a lot tougher job staying up.

So I had the chance to watch all of Spain play England at the Euro U21 Championship. An interesting game in which Spain dominated possession and oozed class but lacked that killer blow in the final third. In the end England were very fortunate to score late and tie the game up 1-1, but Spain only had themselves to blame for not having killed off the game earlier.

Martin Montoya, Thiago, Jeffren and Barca youth graduate Albert Botia started the match and Bojan came off the bench for the last 15 minutes. Here is what I thought of their performances:

Martin Montoya
La Masia 1909529
I was very surprise he started instead of Azpilicueta, but he justified his inclusion with a great performance. He was superior to Didace Vila, who showed some skill down the left, but also saw his flank penetrated time and time again. The right side was, however, impenetrable and he was very comfortable on the ball. He got forward to good effect, almost scoring in the second half. Showed his class and only lacks the experience and confidence required of playing for Barca. Deserves promotion, even if its at Maxwell's expense.

Alberto Botia
La Masia 250006566
Other than when he stepped up and failed to play Welbeck offside, he was very solid, comfortable on the ball and showed experience and class. Even the goal was more of a collective shambles than his fault. Considering Pep seems so unwilling to shell out for a centreback, perhaps our best chance in getting one is hoping Botia plays outstandingly at this tournament and we buy him back. He's certainly worth it in my opinion, looks like he'll become a good centreback.

Thiago
La Masia 1906776
One of the youngest members in the squad, but easily the most talented. Took 'Man of the Match Honours' and showed the world why Barca are so keen to hold on to him. Oozed class throughout with his silky samba touch and passing. Skinned Mancienne 1v1 at one point to get a shot off in one of the plays of the game. His final ball wasn't quite fine tuned enough tonight, but to be fair England's centreback pairing was superb (Jones and Smalling- we can expect United to continue to have one of the best defences in the world for years to come). Very encouraging!

Thiago Match Highlight

Jeffren
La Masia 104583
Not given enough service and struggled to have an influence on the game. Walker (RB) was England's best player which didn't help his cause on the left wing either. Showed he is a slippery player with some skill every now and again, but I'll be surprise if he starts next match with Capel, Bojan and Muniain all on the bench. Probably lacking match practice, and not of Barca level yet. For me, his future lies away from Barca next year.

Bojan
La Masia 104024
Came on in the 80th minute, but we all know he's not the type of player who makes a great impact. Lost the ball a few times and generally tried a bit too hard to win the game for his team. Like Jeffren, he looks down on confidence and match-practice. For the good of his own career he must seriously consider a temporary move away from Barca, his love for Barca is currently killing his career. That being said, he deserves to start in the next match after mediocre performances from Adrian and Jeffren. With a full 90 minutes he can perhaps show what he's made of.
