    Sure, but he can also stop goals at our end from crosses and aerial threats.

    Remember those games were teams would give us 14 corners because we didn't have anyone in the box who could actually punish teams at set pieces. Remember when teams would foul us time and time agian because if a cross is made there is no one who is a top threat there.

    We had Mathieu who himself was a monster in the air and his usefulness in set pieces didn't come close to making his defensive performances worth playing as anything more than 3rd choice CB in any situation. He even scored crucial goals for us that nobody cared to mention when he made a massive mistake on the defensive end.

    For a defender, their defensive contribution is what is most important, and Mina isn't even on Bartra's level in that aspect.

    Would he even play in these tough games tho? I can't really see Valverde starting Mina instead of Pique in an important CL game or just subbing him on unless its like the 90th min and we are desperate and out of other options.

    To get his strengths on offense the coach has to trust him as a defender first so thats what has to be improved before we can even talk about him deciding close games.

    As things stands he would probably not even be in the squad for these games with Lenglet coming as CB nr 3.

    Stop giving gasgas attention. Every thread I go is filled with cringy little one liners from him which don't add anything to discussion.

    Yerry Mina does not appear in the list of CB’s in Lenglet’s presentation communication.

    It quite clearly mentions the 'experienced defenders' in relation to helping him grow.

    1. Pique
    2. Umtiti
    3. Lenglet
    4. Vermaelen

    Mina is going to be 5th choice, if he stays. No need to keep him whatsoever now.

    Pique and Umtitti will remain the starters. For most of last season, they were really good, though the defense did fade towards the end. However the CB rotation shakes out, I hope Pique and Umtitti play fewer minutes than last year, so that maybe they can finish the season stronger.

    Time to cash in on Mina, give him a chance at a club that suits him better.

    If we loan him it has to be a team with a relatively high line and plays offensively.

    We already know Mina is world class in the air and holding his own in a fortified defensive setup where is main role is just cleaning up crosses and deliveries in the box. It's his 1 on 1 defense that has been underwhelming and we need him to either develop it a lot or show that it can't be salvaged and move on from him. I think he can improve there, and deserves to be in a situation to show it.

    Mina on his time at Barcelona so far:

    "When I saw that I wasn't even on the bench, that I wasn't even being considered, I started to train alone at home. It is tough to watch your teammates and see the matches on TV, it was a difficult moment that I don't wish on any player," Mina said in Bogota during a news conference on Thursday.

    "There were very difficult moments that were very sad for me because I was really not doing well. There were moments when I thought everything was going to turn out as I had imagined, but it wasn't like that. I felt moments everything came crashing down upon me, I felt that nothing was going right, I couldn't even pass the ball right, or train, I just felt like nothing went right."

    Can't wait for God Serena to put a negative spin on the above post.
