Barcelona fans react to Carles Alena’s situation at the club

Carles Alena was one of the hottest prospects of Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy.

The now 21-year-old midfielder played a total of 89 games for Barcelona B before joining the senior team at the beginning of the 2019/20 season. By all accounts, it seemed like a big move for a young prospect.

But after tallying the first 45 minutes of his senior career with the Catalans in the opening game of the new campaign, Alena simply disappeared, never to be picked again.

And now, according to Marca, he is considering his options in January already and there are whispers about him potentially leaving the club, with the likes of Real Betis showing their interest.

Naturally, many Barca fans don’t really like it when La Masia graduates are thrown out of the club and have to leave due to low or non-existent game time.

Some described this situation as awful and one fan even compared Alena to Sergi Samper, a former Barcelona player that also had to leave the club because he couldn’t find the continuity he needed.
