Six blaugrana make Spain U-17 call-up

Yet another Spain U-17 call-up, yet another overwhelming Barça contingent. Santi Denia has called-up six blaugrana for training sessions at the Las Rozas National Training Centre in Madrid on September 15 and 17, which is as many players as Real Madrid and Villarreal, the teams with the second most players have combined.

As for the players who have been called-up, there isn’t much change. They are the same six who were called-up the last time round. The Juvenil B stars Carles Aleñà, Carles Pérez, Marc Cucurella, Dani Morer, Alex Blanco and Oriol Busquets are those who got the call-up.

Legal: Bartomeu and Faus appear in the clear

José Perals, a corruption watchdog in the Spanish government, recommended to judge Pablo Ruz, in charge of the still ongoing Jordi Cases Neymargate saga, that FC Barcelona club president Josep Maria Bartomeu and vice president Javier Faus not be named as an accused in the case. He states that “no incriminating evidence involving them has materialized.” I  guess he read the small print.

Adriano: “I’m feeling fine now”

FC Barcelona defender Adriano Correia (29) spoke in Wednesday’s press conference where he talked about the changes under new coach Luis Enrique. The full back, who suffered a heart-rate problem that kept him sidelined for several weeks, has returned to full training and looks like he’ll start playing once again. “It was quite a fright when they discovered that I had cardiac problems” he said. “A lot of things go through your head. In a clinical sense, I knew that I was in good hands. And I have a lot of faith and am thinking about it less and less with each day … I’m feeling fine now. The issue has passed. It could be solved and now I’m back training 100% and looking forward to getting started and enjoying my football.” More from the Brazilian after the jump.

Managing La Masia: The quiet makeover of Barça B

Managing La Masia: The quiet makeover of Barça B

Much has been made of the overhaul Barcelona’s first team has undergone this summer. 2014 has seen the departure of Victor Valdés and Carles Puyol, over 150 million euros spent in the transfer market, and what feels like a return to Pep Guardiola’s values with Luis Enrique. In particular, much has been made of Luis Enrique’s use of the youth team in preseason and the first two Liga games, in which 19-year-olds Munir El Haddadi and Sandro Ramirez each made their first-team debuts and scored.

A statistic making the rounds of late shows that Luis Enrique has already featured Barça B players more than Gerardo Martino did all last season. With Luis Suárez still banned and a sulking Gerard Deulofeu shipped out on loan, culés are delighted to have a seemingly ceaseless conveyor belt of talented youths to fill the gaps. Indeed, Barcelona B is brimming with talent in nearly every position, and seems perfectly situated to supplement the first team through the 2015 transfer ban. The timing couldn’t be better. Yet amidst the overwhelming focus on Luis Enrique and Andoni Zubizarreta’s renewal of the first team, few have drawn attention to the quiet work at Barcelona B over the last few years that have brought these talents to the surface. Read on after the jump.
