Barcelona – Tuesday, 09/21/2021, 8:26 am
Yusuf Demir is probably in seventh football heaven when he started playing for FC Barcelona for the first time on Monday!
In the home game against Granada (1-1), head coach Ronald Koeman offered the 18-year-old youngster alongside Memphis Depay and Philippe Coutinho. In the end, however, Demir could not be happy about a victory at Camp Nou.
After 75 minutes, the Rapid loan was taken off the field when the score was 0: 1. The offensive player saw the late equalization by Ronald Araujo from the bench. What remains is a hard-working appearance, which the Spanish press attests to him.
For example, “Mundo Deportivo” wrote: “He started out hesitantly, but gained confidence and weight in the team’s offensive game. He got stronger and stronger.” “Marca” sees Demir’s starting XI debut as follows: “The Austrian youngster tried, but was not very effective.”
ESPN, on the other hand, said: “The 18-year-old Austrian had a few good moments, but also phases in which he was absent. He will improve with every game.”
