Samuel Umtiti is seeing light at the end of the tunnel after years of physical problems. Ronald Koeman has handed him two starts in recent weeks, where he played the 90. The coach showed he will do what he can for Umtiti to find his form and try and get back to his best.
He was excellent against Granada on Jan 9 and again at Elche. Lenglet was on the bench and Umtiti started this time, whereas on the prior occasion he was unavailable.
Against Elche Umtiti shows he just needs opportunities to grow, keeping on building form and fitness.
