An hour into FC Barcelona’s match versus their rivals Real Madrid on Saturday, Los Blancos’ rising star Vinicius Junior beamed a shot toward the net but Clement Lenglet was there to block it with his chest. Lenglet had previously made a similar painful block with his chest on Raphael Varane’s shot.
Clement Lenglet can breath easy. The player, according to ‘Marca’, received the call from Barca. The club wanted to make clear that they are counting on him for next season.
Lenglet is delighted at Barca and his plan is to stay. He is aware that with Setien, he is no longer a nailed on starter, but he is willing to show that he deserves a place in the Barca XI.
