Paulinho Is Not Ready For Barcelona?
When news broke out that Barcelona is trying to sign Paulinho, most of the fans doubts that the Brazillian is the right player to be brought in.
The midfielder is the first signing of Barcelona after Neymar’s departure.
Paulinho is mostly known for playing for Tottenham back in the day and was voted the worst player during his stint in London.
There isn’t any repertoire that indicates that he had a high playing standard throughout his career.
So why does Paulinho needed by Barcelona?
The midfielder arrived at Nou Camp yesterday to have his medical.
He then signs for the Catalans on a long term contract worth £36.5m from Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande.
He will be wearing No.15 for his new club.
Things got worse when he got presented to the medias in Nou Camp.
It’s a tradition where players will show off some moves. You expect something from a Brazilian player who is known for their Samba tricks.
Paulinho was mocked on social media after fluffing his keepy uppy and couldn’t do more than 4 kick ups.
Feeling the pressure already Paulie?
“Coming to Barcelona is a dream and I will give everything to this club”, the player said during his unveiling.
His Brazilian teammate and ex-Barcelona player Dani Alves shows support for his pal with an Instagram post to boost Paulinho confidence.
@paulinhop8 muito feliz por você meu irmão, sei que vai conseguir honrar essa camisa com muita personalidade…. como tú bem sabe, pressão pra noix é adrenalina. Você é merecedor de tudo na vida e a vida nunca é injusta com aqueles que se entregam, com aqueles que batalha pelos seus sonhos nem com aqueles que amam o que fazem! “Te amo meu mano”
Although they are a great number of critics for his transfer, there are still some who back him to prove the doubters wrong.
Only time will tell if Paulinho is a Yay or Nay during the season.
The midfielder has to cope with pressure for being a Barcelona player and create great chemistry with the players he play with especially Messi and Suarez.
Pique admits yesterday after their defeat to Real Madrid that last night was the first time he felt that Barcelona was inferior to their main rivals.
Even when Real Madrid have won the Champions League, he still think that the Catalans are the better team.
The defender has been very honest on Barcelona situation where the players are not really in sync and has not been up to standard they should be.
Hopefully we can see Messi and Barcelona back to their best very soon to entertain their fans again and challenge Real Madrid for domestics trophies.
