first_imgAs paradoxical as Barça’s fastest player this 2019-20 seems, is Carles Pérez. The current footballer of Roma registered 34.67 km / h and leads the culé club’s table of sprinters. But they follow closely: Braithwaite 34.6 km / h, Dembelé 34.6 km / h, Semedo 34.5 km / h and Piqué 34.1 km / h. The case of the Danish striker is curious, but he achieved this mark when he played for Leganés and had more space behind him.The milestone of Carles Pérez would have been a trend in the previous campaign since he would have surpassed Christopher Ramos (the fastest in 2018-19) with 33.7 km / h. Instead, Fede Valverde (35.1), Pedrosa (35.1), Óscar (35), Hernani (35) and Alex Moreno Braithwaite, Canales, Ferran and Llorente are now behind with 34.9. PARKER & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>FOOTBALL 19/20PARKER (DAILY AS) Pérez’s farewell to Barça was complex and, possibly, unexpected at the beginning of the season. “He is screwed, but very screwed”, said a person from his environment to AS in late January. His goodbye was a jug of cold water for the youth squad. “If I decided on Roma it is because I want to grow here, to be important for Roma. Barcelona is my past and Rome is my present. I signed four and a half years and my idea is to stay”, the player himself recognized the day of your presentation.The truth is that his baggage in the first team was at least positive: 11 games with 2 goals and two assists. High figures for a youth squad who was facing his first campaign with ‘the older ones’. In Italy he already enjoys his new challenge (where he scored in the Europa League), but having left a current record at the club that saw him grow.last_img read more
