Valverde’s Barcelona is a particular team. Get results, but do not convince. The club that once had the most characteristic game identity in the world of football, is becoming pragmatic. This is a problem.

In the Camp Nou, not everything is to win, sometimes even, it matters more the ‘how’ and not the ‘what’.

Not all the generations of the quarry, La Masía, are equal to that of Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, and company.

In fact, this will hardly happen again.

That said, two factors came together: the arrival of a “normal” generation and the hiring of two pragmatic technicians (Luis Enrique and Ernesto Valverde, respectively).

Yes, they are right those who comment: “Pep Guardiola got the bad habit into football.”

He was a genius in Barcelona. Then other mortals had to assume what he left behind. The results have not been bad at all, but the process has changed to the point of being completely different.

Is identity so important in football? In fact, no … For the world of football. The play influences, provide options, but does not ensure anything.

A pragmatic team, on the other hand, yes. The result is everything, no matter the method to obtain it. So this is cheating. Or not. Oh okay…

But, there is something else: the essence.

A football club represents life for a large number of people. And the link is bidirectional, since the club also needs to receive support from its people.

This will never cease to be a business, although neither will never stop listening to the fans. Never.

Here is Valverde’s dilemma, identity.

His work is not bad, but it is possible that he is not the right one, the chosen one, the successor.

Why does he continue? He won a couple of important titles and Barcelona has a clear objective: UEFA Champions League.

The identity could be set aside when the Champions is mentioned.

There is a dilemma, but there is also a need and a possible solution.

What will weigh more?
