Old reunions are something that Barcelona are often forced to face on. The Catalan giants have a long list of former players that end up facing La Blaugrana at some point. However, the upcoming game against Girona will be a special one for Barcelona.

In particular, it will be a special occasion for a certain Barcelona loanee. Previously, when Barça managed to acquire the services of Oriol Romeu, there were certain players that also made their way to the other Catalan club, the one wildcard in the top spectrum of La Liga these days.

Eric Garcia was among the players that went to Girona as part of a loan deal. Now, as SPORT highlights, his return is quite anticipated for a number of reasons. Now a more mature player, Eric Garcia has certainly developed under the guidance of Michel.

Following the confirmation of his loan deal, it interestingly took Garcia only 4 games to cement himself as a starter. Given his current trajectory, there is no doubt that he will be a viable asset for Barcelona once he returns.

Prioritizing his football and minutes above all else, he had no problem in being loaned to Girona despite coming from the likes of Manchester City and Barça.

Now, unlike Pablo Torre, Garcia is not forbidden from featuring against Barcelona. In fact, the excitement from both sides is high ahead of the clash. Both Catalan clubs know what is at stake, and Eric Garcia only adds to that excitement for fans of both Barcelona and Girona.

For Michel, the player embodies exactly what he wants from his players. Composure, good technical ability, and no fear of demanding the ball, Eric Garcia has it all. While he could not find a place as a starter in Barcelona, life in Girona has thus far gone the best way it could for him.
