Barca’s Lenglet ‘wants to play more’

Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet admitted he would like to play more for the club but stressed the ‘importance of learning’ from others.

The Frenchman arrived from Sevilla in a €35m summer transfer but has featured in just 25 minutes of Barca’s first three league games of the campaign.

“It is natural for every player to want to play in every game, but that is not always possible,” Lenglet is cited as saying by Marca.

“I want to be involved more in first-team action but the important thing is that I learn and grow whilst I’m here, because you are surrounded by great players.

“I must show patience and continue to work hard in order to earn my chance.”
