Well, it seems like a done deal, and many of us will still be Edgar's fans even though he's moving, so I think it's fitting that we follow his progress and chat about what he gets upto at the Nou Camp.

How do you guys think Davids will fit into Barca's lineup? Will he be a consistent fixture in the first eleven?

I really dont like Barca as a club. So i was quite sad to see edgar go there. Frankly, i do feel hes going to stagnate as a player at Barca. Its a weakening club and the culture prevelant off late is an acceptance as a mid table team. Even with its very existent dutch base they are very dissapointing.

Davids, en buena forma



Edgar Davids ha superado con éxito la revisión médica realizada en el Centro Médico FC Barcelona Sanitas. Jordi Ardévol, responsable de los Servicios Médicos del Club, ha elogiado su estado físico.

La primera jornada de Edgar Davids como blaugrana ha empezado a primera hora de la mañana de este lunes, cuando el centrocampista holandés se ha sometido a unas pruebas analíticas en la Clínica Asepeyo de Sant Cugat. Posteriormente Davids se ha trasladado a las instalaciones del Camp Nou, para pasar las pruebas físicas en el Centro Médico FC Barcelona Sanitas.



El doctor Jordi Ardévol, jefe de los servicios médicos del Club, ha valorado satisfactoriamente el estado del jugador: "Le hemos hecho la batería habitual de exploraciones y radiologías en la Clínica Asepeyo, luego en el centro Sanitas una prueba de esfuerzo, una ecocardiografía, una exploración general y un test de esfuerzo musculary las ha pasado con éxito".

El factor físico, ideal

El doctor Ardévol ha destacado especialmente el buen estado del jugador: "En su día superó perfectamente una fractura de tibia. Tiene casi 31 años, es un jugador que se cuida bien y al que le gusta estar en una condición física ideal. Ha venido en muy buen estado, su forma es mejorable, pero buena. No hay ningún problema para que pueda jugar con gafas, pues se trata de gafas homologadas. A falta de saber los resultados de la analítica de esta mañana, puede estar a disposición del entrenador de forma inmediata."

LAUDRUP, EL PRECEDENTE

Edgar Davids es el segundo jugador que llega al Futbol Club Barcelona procedente de la Juventus de Turín. El precedente lo encontramos en el danés Michael Laudrup (actualmente técnico del Brondby, próximo rival del Barça en la Copa de la UEFA), quién recaló en la disciplina del 'Dream Team' de Johan Cruyff en el verano de 1989, tras haber estado durante cinco temporadas en la Juventus de Michel Platini. Se da la curiosidad de que 'Michelino' también había militado en el Ajax, equipo de procedencia de Edgar Davids.

El holandés Edgar Davids, que será presentado oficialmente esta tarde (18.00 horas) como nuevo jugador del Barcelona, ha pasado "con nota" la revisión médica, según ha desvelado Jordi Ardévol, responsable de los servicios médicos del FC Barcelona.

El holandés se ha sometido a las exploraciones habituales. Una revisión radiológica, otra analítica, una prueba de esfuerzo, una ecocardiografía, un test de potencia muscular y una exploración general.


"Físicamente, teniendo en cuenta que tiene 31 años y una dilatada carrera, se nota que es un jugador que se ha cuidado. Se trata de un buen profesional, de un jugador que le gusta estar bien preparado", ha explicado el médico barcelonista.

"Está compensado y controlado"

Ardévol ha asegurado que Davids tendrá que mejorar la condición física, pero que los dos problemas médicos que ha arrastrado en su carrera: una fractura de tibia y peroné en 1997 y un glaucoma en 2000, están "bien resueltos".

"El problema ocular (necesita unas gafas especiales) no altera su rendimiento deportivo. Está compensado y controlado, en perfecto estado", ha indicado.

The dutch Edgar Davids, that will be officially presented this afternoon (18 hours) as a new player for Barcelona, has approved the medical check, said Jordi Ardévol, responsible of the medical services of FC Barcelona

The dutchman went under the habitual checkings. A radiological checking, an analitical, an effort test, an ecocardiography (?), a muscular potency test and a general exploration.


"Fisically, knowing he is 31 years old and a dilated carreer, you can see he is a player that has taken care of himself. He is a good profesional, a player that likes to be well prepared" said the Barcelonist doctor

"He is compensated and controlled".

Adrévol has assured that Davids will have to improve his physical condition, but that the two medical problems that he has had in his carreer, a broken tibia and fibula in 1997 and a glaucoma in 2000 are "well done".

"The ocular problem (he needs special glasses) doesnt alter his deportive exhaustion. He is compensated and controlled, in perfect condition", he said.

Joan Laporta: "Juventus' cession is free and Edgar gave up on some things to come to Barca; I want to publicly thank his effort. Soon both parties will talk to see if we can longer our link. Im convinced it'll be that way, because Davids will give us a great performance. He is a person mentally mature, a great fighter and an extraordinary player. Without a doubt he is our second mediatic "crack"

Davids started thanking the president and the techical staff for the oportunity that theyre giving him to play in a club like Barca. Afterwards he wished that "my integration be fast" and he explained that "its good for the two parties to get to know each other better so at the end of the season we can decide if we'll remain together", a decission that he made even though Barca doesnt classify for the next edition of the Champions League.

The dutch midfielder also commented his opinion respecting Frank Rijkaard's groups: "This season so far I've seen the team play. I think in most matches to score goals was missing, but besides that the team is good and the actual deportive project has future."

He will wear number 3

Edgar Davids will wear number 3 in his blaugrana stage, a number that became free after Patrick Anderson left. The dutchman, that wore number 26 in Juventus, cannot wear this number in Barca because in the spanish league numbers superior to 25 cannot be worn, because they're reserved for the primavera players that go into the first team. Nowadays number 26 is used by Ramon Ros.
