Serie A: Lecce has decided, Umtiti does not have the level

This summer, Samuel Umtiti decided to relaunch on the side of Lecce in Serie A. But the world champion is not living at all the experience hoped for at the moment.

Samuel Umtiti (28) has been going through a complicated period since his title of world champion in 2018 with the France team. The French central defender is very often the victim of physical glitches. A situation that pushed the player and Barça to separate this summer.

Indeed, Umtiti took charge of Lecce on a loan with no option to buy. Because the idea is to relaunch the career in free fall of the world champion. If his great debut is eagerly awaited by observers and fans of Lecce, nothing is to report for the moment. Still on the bench against Cremonese (1-1) this Sunday, Umtiti is considered too short by his staff, despite his reinforced work during the last international break.

  Umtiti, nothing is going right...

  A situation that is becoming more and more worrying for Umtiti, who has been on the bench for six games now. His trainer, Marco Baroni, said in mid-September: “We are working to help him do what he has always done and I can guarantee that the boy is physically fine. At the moment, he just needs to find a better condition (…) We are trying to find this better condition together which will allow him to play matches at his level”. 

 Obviously, the time has not yet come for the former Lyonnais to start in Serie A. As a reminder, Samuel Umtiti's last appearance on a football pitch dates back to December 12, 2021 during a match between Barça and Osasuna. . The Frenchman is therefore counting the hours before finally being able to prove his worth. For that, he will have to sweep away doubts about his physical condition, which has played him so many tricks since 2018. Perhaps the next international break due to the World Cup in Qatar will do him the greatest good. That's all the harm we can wish him.
