BARCELONA: After Barcelona's shock 2-1 defeat to Leganes Wednesday, coach Ernesto Valverde was left grappling with a problem that also haunted his predecessor Luis Enrique: how to rotate his squad and keep his best players fresh without dropping points.Barca had also struggled away to Real Sociedad earlier this month when Valverde started without Sergio Busquets, but came from behind to win 2-1 after the coach dispatched his midfield anchor onto the pitch.Valverde was criticized last season for not rotating his squad, particularly toward the end of the campaign when the title was practically sealed, leading to key players being overworked and saw them exit the Champions League to AS Roma.
