Jordi Alba is destined to come back to Barcelona because he was at La Masia for seven years.
Supposedly, he was "too small" for Barcelona, which is why they released him. This seems very strange, particularly for the Catalan giants, because they are about technique, finesse and high football IQ.
Alba and Jeremy Mathieu have alternated from left-back to left winger this season. Mathieu is the more solid left-back, whereas Alba is the more explosive winger.
For Barça, Alba could potentially be the left-sided Dani Alves, which means the opposing team would have to defend against marauding full-back runs from both flanks.
To those who say Alba can't defend, he has intercepted the ball 73 times, so he does track back.
