Barcelona midfielder Pablo Torre has sent out a message to manager Xavi Hernandez after being left on the bench once again for Sunday’s 2-0 La Liga win over Cadiz at the Camp Nou.

Torre was sent out to warm up late on and did look set to get some much-needed first-team minutes. However, Xavi changed his mind and opted to send on Angel Alarcon in his place, handing the teenager his first-team debut.

It was a curious move by Xavi and one that left Torre looking extremely frustrated on the bench. However, he appears to be chanelling his anger in a positive away in his latest Instagram post.

Torre was signed in the summer but has only made six appearances in all competitions this season. He might have expected game time against Cadiz as Pedri is injured and Xavi wanted to rotate ahead of the crunch Europa League tie against Manchester United.

Sergi Roberto came into the team alongside Frenkie de Jong and Gavi, meaning Torre once again started off the bench. However, he didn’t even get on in the second half with Barcelona 2-0 up in the game which will surely be of concern to the youngster.
