Claudia Pina returned to Barcelona this summer after a spectacular season at Sevilla. The forward showed in the city of Seville that she is much more than a killer and that earned her a place in Jonatan Giráldez’s competitive squad. Despite the handicaps and an injury that has kept him off the pitch for about a month, Pina has been able to make good use of the minutes he has enjoyed so far …

Claudia Pina is the great pearl of Spanish football. This was demonstrated in lower categories, but he needed to have minutes in continuity. He got it last year in Seville, where he arrived on loan from Barcelona. The tip arrived at the age of 19 in the Andalusian capital and threw Cristian Toro’s team on his back.

Even so, Claudia Pina continues to work like an ant to have her chance. And when Giráldez gives her minutes, she makes the most of them. In fact, this season he has participated in four games. He started the game against Valencia with the entire match and from the bench against Granadilla (19 minutes), Alavés (36 ‘) and Real Sociedad (19’), for a total of 164 minutes. In that little time he has already scored three goals, that is, dial every little over 54 minutes. He scored against Granadilla, also against Alavés and the last against Real Sociedad, a great goal. And they would be more if it weren’t for the injury he suffered in early October that has taken him off the pitch for about a month. Claudia Pina knocks on Giráldez’s door …
