Clément Lenglet has been shaken by mounting pressure which gets worse with each mistake, according to a new report. The FC Barcelona defender went through another calamity against Cádiz, allowing a sure win to fall through their grasp with a late equalizer after being up 1-0.

After two good seasons in which he established himself as a starter after moving from Sevilla, Lenglet has been having a crisis this season.

What has made him drop his level so much?

Apparently, it’s not a physical issue. Rather, the issue is all in the mind.

His mistakes are compounding on each other, causing more doubt and less confidence, leading to further errors, and so on. It’s a vicious cycle that could land the Frenchman on the transfer list, unless things change, and quickly.
