Barça-Girona: the surprising player that Xavi fears


By: Manu Tournoux

FC Barcelona has a meeting with Girona this Sunday for an unexpected shock at the top of La Liga (9 p.m.). The little Catalan neighbor is 2nd in the championship, 4 points ahead of the Culés, who will not really have the right to make mistakes. For this meeting, Barça has everything planned, or almost. On loan from the Blaugranas, Pablo Torre will not be able to play due to a clause preventing him from facing his “mother” team. But for Eric Garcia, the situation is different because no clause was included in his loan.

Spain has even found a name for this famous feature which is debated every year: the fear clause. “That sounds great to me. Look what happened to Atlético with Joao (Félix). Would you like the same thing to happen to us?, questions Xavi at a press conference, on the eve of the clash. I consider this normal. Eric Garcia? He will also be very motivated against us. In fact, with Eric, this clause was not signed because it could not be done”*, explains the coach. To his great regret.
