In Barcelona’s last game versus Atletico Madrid where the Blaugranas were defeated 2-0, an interesting incident happened. Veteran left-back Jordi Alba who was included in the squad after returning from an injury, has faced an “it is what it is” moment and the video clip went viral in social media.
When the second half was about to start, Atletico were leading 2-0. Jordi Alba was ready to play the the game as a substitute and warming up but it didn’t happen as expected. Since there are so many sudden and unpredictable changes happening these days at Barcelona, It appeared that nobody was shocked except Alba himself. In the video, the following quotes can be clearly seen spoken in the bench.
Jordi Alba asked “Why am I not coming on?” Looking at the management
Jordi Alba (while on the bench): “Why don’t they put me on?”
Apparently, Alba was asked to warm up to play as a substitute, then Barca Head Coach communicated that he changed the idea and to keep him on the bench (According to myself)
