Thomas Gains More Prominence In 2018-19

Thomas being a Belgian defender has proven his importance several times. The crucial title race of La Liga that occurred at the beginning of the year showcased him in an important role for Ernesto Valverde’s side. The move definitely surprised Barcelona since the last few years he has only been able to participate in a few matches, being succumbed by injuries for which he had to take several months off the field to heal and get back in the sporting spirit.

His luck has changed, however since the end of November 2017. The Belgian has been able to play in every match lined up for La Liga leadership since 26th November. The run of matches has been several since then, including six matches of the league, taking place in the Copa Del Rey as well as in the Champions League. Vermaelen has played about 11 matches in total for the season-ending 2017-18.
