Sevilla CF’s Luís Alberto Romero signed a one-year loan deal with Barça B this summer. His transition to the team’s style of play couldn’t have been any better.

Excellent performances in the midfield and as false 9

After not being named to the team for the two first games of the season, Romero featured in the team's next three games - all of which were won by Barça B - against Sabadell, Guadalajara and Ponferradina. His performances in the latter two game were especially notable. Against Guadalajara he scored the game-winning goal and at the Miniestadi, against Ponferradina, he scored the first and assisted Lobato for the second.

Romero is comfortable playing in the midfield and in the false 9 position: “Everything is working out well and I’m eager to keep on working. The team cannot stop here, we know that we have to continue our work; we’re getting better each day.”

Powerful and technically adept

Barça B’s number 9 is a technically gifted player, he dominates the ball with both feet, and he’s confident in front of goal. Standing 182 centimeters tall, he’s one of the tallest players on the roster. According to Eusebio, “he’s ideal for our style of play. He’s very good technically and he has good field vision, he’s also a strong lad and he uses his body well.”

Barça B currently sit in sixth position, in the promotion play-off zone of the table.
