Managing Lamine Yamal’s Minutes and La Masia Update with ArsenkveFCB

On episode 517, Dan and ArsenKveFCB discuss the challenge Xavi has with managing Lamine Yamal’s minutes. Then they give an update on some of the other teenagers Xavi is considering, including Pau Cubarsi, Guille Fernandez, and many more!

*Note – Somehow we overlooked talking about Angel Alarcon. His story is a frustrating one – he’s played 36 total minutes this season since coming back from an injury going back to last season. He played 20 minutes for Barça Atletic and 16 minutes in the UYL, scoring a nice counter-attack goal, but a thigh issue has him injured again and out for several more weeks. He’s still just 19-years-old and the club highly values him, but injuries have been a huge black mark on his young career so far.
