Konrad and Dest, in Cardiff to ‘relive’ the American dream

Of the 24 players called up by the coach, 10 of them will seek to play their first match with the absolute of their country. A list full of young talent that has already shone with the U-17 and U-20 teams Yunus Musah (Valencia) and Gio Reyna (Borrusia Dortmund), who have been included in the list of the best footballers in the world between 17 and the 23 years, will be competition for the Blaugrana footballer. Both seem to have an advantage, since they are both important and are shining with their respective teams. However, Konrad never gives up and just as he fought to earn a shot at Barça’s first team, he will fight to make his way among so much emerging talent.

Coutinho wants to be Koeman’s ‘signing’ for Atlético-Barça

Koeman’s alternatives to the downside of Ansu Fati

The injury to Ansu Fati, who will be away from the pitch for at least 4 months, positions Konrad as one of his future substitutes. A priori, Ousmane Dembélé, Francisco Trincao or even Martin Braithwaite are ahead of the Blaugrana youth squad. Ronald Koeman already made it clear in preseason that the young man who had surprised him the most was the American. For this reason, the Dutchman has him well guarded and is a regular in first team training sessions. Now Konrad will wait for his opportunity to show that he is more than ready to replace Ansu and start his legacy at Can Barça.

Sergi Samper was able to meet up with a former teammate on the occasion of the match between FC Barcelona and Inter Milan.

The Catalan midfielder greeted Keita Baldé, Inter winger who went through the lower categories of FC Barcelona coinciding with the Barcelona player.

Samper, who is not living his best moment, because so far he has not yet been summoned by Ernesto Valverde in any official match, a photo was taken and a shirt was exchanged with his old friend, a moment that he immortalized with a photo that he posted this Thursday on his Instagram account.

Samper shows his joy after the reunion with the player in a nice message that accompanies the photograph: "From the age of 9 playing together"He says in reference to the seasons in which they coincided in the lower categories. Add in Catalan "glad to see you again frate".

The ‘Arturo Vidal case’, in the process of being solved

A sample that they were great friends while they coincided wearing the FC Barcelona shirt and, despite the fact that later both took different paths, they have maintained their friendship.

Konrad de la Fuente will be one of the important reinforcements that García Pimienta will have this weekend in the debut of Barcelona B in the official competition. Konrad has not been summoned by Koeman for the game against Getafe at the Coliseum and is now at the disposal of García Pimienta for this Sunday’s game against Nàstic de Tarragona in the Johan Cruyff State (6:00 p.m.). The North American will be in the debut of Garcia Pimienta’s team in Second B.

Konrad de la Fuente will play for Barça B in season opener

The presence of Konrad in the call will allow the Barcelona subsidiary to win a goal. The winger was one of the outstanding players in the promotion playoff to Segunda B. Garcia Pimienta gave him full powers and the winger responded perfectly despite being a youngster. 

With Konrad de la Fuente, Garcia Pimienta would gain dynamism in the attack zone, one of the aspects that has been missed the most during this preseason, specifically in the last two preseason friendlies against Badalona and Cornellà.

Koeman: "I don’t think Ter Stegen is going to reach the classic"

Konrad has not played an official game for many days and that is why it is understood that the best thing for him would be to add minutes in the subsidiary if he does not play in the first team.

Ernesto Valverde has decided to advance the preseason to July 11 to start preparing for the 2018-19 season as soon as possible.

In this way, the FC Barcelona coach will start working sessions with eight players from the first team: Jasper Cillessen, Nelson Semedo, Sergi Roberto, Lucas Digne, André Gomes, Denis Suárez, Aleix Vidal and Paco Alcácer. 


In the absence of a transfer this summer, they will be joined by the loaned Munir (Deportivo) and Douglas (Benfica) while Rafinha is waiting for Inter’s offer to complete his transfer and Gerard Deulofeu reached an agreement not to return. to Barça. All these footballers have their loan out on June 30. 

Sergi Samper will also start the preseason on July 11, who broke his assignment at UD Las Palmas due to a serious injury that forced him to return to Barcelona where he had surgery and said goodbye to the remainder of the season.


In addition, to complete the work sessions, some players from the subsidiary would be incorporated, allowing the technical staff to work with greater possibilities.

Barça advances the start of the 2018/2019 preseason

Carles Aleñà, who this year will have a first-team record, will not yet be able to join the training sessions in July as he suffered a rupture of the hamstring tendon in the right thigh against Zaragoza and underwent surgery last Thursday in Helsinki where he Dr. Sakari Orava operated.

Sergiño Dest and Konrad de la Fuente are already focused on the United States team. In this window of international matches, the two FC Barcelona players are two more of an exodus that will leave Koeman working with Piqué, Dembélé, Jordi Alba and little else. But the cases of the two North American players have special overtones. First, because the US team has not played a match (friendly or official), keep an eye on the data, since last February 1 against Costa Rica. More than nine months later Greg Berhalter’s boys will put on the stars and stripes jacket again to play a match.

The return will be against Wales on the 12th in Swansea. But it is that in the case of Sergiño Dest, who already has a handful of caps despite being only 19 years old, much more time has gone by without playing with the American national team. Since September 11, 2019, the Barça side has not been aligned. On that occasion the United States was measured with Uruguay in Saint Louis and ‘Destiño’ was the starter. Then came several matches of the Nations League version of CONCACAF, but the footballer with a Dutch mother did not play for a minute. The feeling will be almost like debuting again.

For his part, Konrad de la Fuente, born in Miami but whose father is of Haitian origin, will live his debut with the senior team against Wales (presumably, Berhalter will play all or almost all of them). In case of not doing so, he would arrive safely against Panama on the 16th in Austria, the other friendly that the North American team has. Konrad has been through almost every junior league in the United States and will finally live the moment he dreamed of.

Dest and Konrad, called up by the United States team

This new Berhalter project features a new batch of players with an exciting future. Yunus Musah (recently recruited by the coach himself), Christian Pulisic, McKennie, Reina, Tyler Adams, Cannon and company promise strong emotions in a team that looks forward to the Qatar World Cup and, above all, the 2026 World Cup, where they will practice as hosts with Canada and Mexico. 

Dest and Konrad arrived in Cardiff this Sunday night to join the concentration of the North American team, which will train at the Welsh Federation facilities and on Thursday will leave for Swansea to experience that long-awaited return to the green.
