The coach of Barcelona, ​​Xavi Herndandez, has decided not to change the role of the Uruguayan central defender, Ronald Araujo.

With Xavi feeling the heat after back-to-back defeats against Girona and Royal Antwerp, changes to the lineup are inevitable.

However, this will only happen if the Barcelona coach wants to get back to winning ways.

One of the main concerns has been Araujo’s reluctance to play at right-back, a role he has expressed reluctance from day one.

According Diario Sport, with the aim of fixing the team’s defensive problems, Xavi has decided to use the Uruguayan only as a center back. 

This arrangement would pave the way for the Frenchman Jules Kounde or the Portuguese Joao Cancelo to fill the right-back position.
