Barcelona have offered some details on Ndiaye who will join up with Francisco Javier García Pimienta’s Barcelona B team for 2020-21.
“Ndiaye is a left sided defender who can play at both centre back and fullback. He is 1.78 metres tall and boasts great strength and speed -as shown in the Under-20s African Cup of Nations in 2019, in which he was named Player Of The Tournament. He also made his mark in the Under-20s World Cup in Poland, where Senegal reached the quarter finals before losing to South Korea on penalties.”
Barcelona B also unveiled new goalkeeper Alex Ruiz on Friday. The 19-year-old has signed for one season, with Inaki Pena expected to be promoted to the first team for next season.
