FM13 Wonderkids to watch – Javier Espinosa
written by Darren Smith
Club: Barcelona B
2011/12 league app: 32 (1 goal)
Compared too: Andres Iniesta
Barcelona’s youth academy is world renowned for producing stars of the future year in year out. Due to the pure volume of talent within La Masia I think its fair to say some wonderkids can hover under the radar so to speak. Well I think Espinosa is one of them, Espinosa is touted as the next Andres Iniesta. This kid only made his Barcelona B team debut in mid 2011 scoring against Numancia.
Espinosa is donned the next Iniesta due to his excellent dribbling, passing and movement but the most canny resemblance comes in the wonderkids vision. Espinosa could develop to a good level in FM12, but never world class and certainly no where near Iniesta’s standard, but I think this should change. I don’t think SI can ignore such a talent for Football Manager 2013 and the proof is in the video. Yes the opposition aren’t exactly Real Madrid but you can clearly see his talent, a must watch star for FM13.
