Five Barça Escola Barcelona athletes to join Barça youth teams
Three footballers, one basketball player and one futsal player will be part of the FC Barcelona setup in 2020/21
A total of five athletes who during the present campaign have been part of the different categories at the Barça Escola Barcelona have been selected for the 2020/21 club setup. Three footballers, a basketball player and a futsal player will make the transition from the school to the youth teams of FC Barcelona in a few weeks.
Footballer Miranda Sterer (born in 2009), will start training with the Under-11s E team for the 2020/21 season. Frank Dídac Sánchez (2012) will join the Under-7s team, while Marc Martínez (2010) will be part of the Under-11s Martínez arrives at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper from the Barça Academy Perfeccionament in Lleida, located in Torrefarrera, where he has been training with the Barça style of play and values during this past season. He is the first player from the Lleida training school to join the club.
For the third year in a row, a Barça Escola Barcelona player will join the club. Following in the footsteps of Roberto Dueñas and Nacho Solozabal, Xavi Cruz (2010) will be part of the FC Barcelona Mini team after playing for Barça Escola for the last four seasons.
Barça Escola Barcelona Futsal will also have its first player brought up to the youth setup, at Under-11s level. Circumstances caused by the Covid-19 crisis have meant that the last selection trials, between two players, have not yet been carried out. The final decision will be made during preseason, in which both will take part.
