Like any other football team, FC Barcelona has its share of players who have struggled this season.
Carles Puyol has had a tough season as injuries have plagued the capita. Carles’ age is beginning to catch up to his game as well.
Despite his goal in Barcelona’s win against Mallorca, Gerard Pique has also had a down year. Shakira’s boyfriend has had issues with injuries along with bad play. He’s been sloppy too many times this season. There have even been rumors that Pep Guardiola has an issue with Gerard dating Shakira with reports claiming Pep believes the Colombian star is a distraction for Pique.
She’s just a WAG, Pep. Relax. Perhaps Pique has been “waka wak-ing” too much with Shakira.
And by “waka wak-ing”, I mean dancing.
But even with all of this, neither Pique nor Puyol have been the most disappointing player for FC Barcelona this season.
FYI: Pique and Puyol are part of the most disappointing element of Barcelona this year—the Barça defense.
The title of most disappointing player belongs to Pedro Rodriguez.
Pedro has been a lock to rack up goals ever since he became a full-time first-team player in 2009. Unfortunately for Pep Guardiola and the club, Pedrito has had a season to forget. The same man who became the first player to score a goal in six different competitions in one season can’t buy a goal nowadays.
As much as other players on Barcelona have had disappointing moments this year, Pedro is the unfortunate winner of most disappointing player.
So why has he struggled?
Here are five reasons why Pedro Rodriguez is FC Barcelona’s most disappointing player for 2011-12.
