Barcelona is a club that is brimming with young talents. Players like Ansu Fati, Pedri, Ronald Araujo, Riqui Puig, Gavi, etc, are all players who have immense futures ahead of them. Still, Barca as a whole is not ready to fight the top European elites at the moment and they must rebuild the team with the help of their new coach, Xavi Hernandez, in order to reclaim their throne on top of European football. Their untimely exit from the UEFA Champions League really shows just how much the club has fallen due to mismanagement and now without Lionel Messi, a new era of youngsters has to be embraced.
The Catalans have always been a proud club, proud of their heritage, players and their fans. That is why the club’s motto, “More than a club” will always stay alive. The Blaugrana enjoyed some of their best times during the 2010s but now they must face the dark times as well. These tough periods fall upon every club and it is how the club handles these periods becomes the foundation of the club. Right now, everyone needs to stand by Barca and help them get up. Young superstar, Puig, is willing to fight for the club’s history and it is heartwarming to see players still stick by the club and the whole Barcelona family. He wrote on Twitter,
"“Those of us who have been culers since I was a child like my family and I are not used to hard times like yesterday when we only saw the club of my life win and celebrate titles like the Champions League of Paris in 2006 with my father and my brother,”“But I am sure we will rise with the help of all and return to the place we deserve, among the best in Europe. Now more than ever we must be united and return to what made us unique. Players and staff will leave their skin to achieve this! Long live Barça!”Source Riqui Puig’s Twitter"
Yes, Barcelona will rise up again, but that cannot happen at a magical pace. The Catalans do not have the funds to just buy players and solve every problem. The club stands for making players instead of just buying them and La Masia has given us some of the best players the footballing world has ever seen.
This is a new era for the Blaugrana and if the players are ready to fight, then the fans are ready to back the club as well. Barcelona will rise again and it is not a matter of will but when.
