I focus on work with him, I have spoken with him and the demands that we move are high, he is a good player and his progression is clear. Today he played 30 minutes, we scored and Kubo had to work more on defense, they got two cards from him and it is not very normal, we are going to appeal, but I have told him that it is one more process for him
There’s a video of the challenge here below. Frankly, I’m not even sure this is a foul, much less a yellow card. It’s a 50/50 ball, Kubo gets the ball cleanly away before Soler comes crashing in, if anything the yellow should be on Soler for colliding with Kubo after the ball is away. But I guess when Soler decided to flop back and forth on the ground like a fish out of water the ref re-interpreted what happened.

To me, the result of this suspension doesn’t matter tremendously one way or another. We have a match with Sivasspor on Thursday, and it would be a perfect chance for Kubo to start and hopefully play 90 minutes. That should happen regardless, so the only question then would be whether he’s available for substitute duty against a surging Cadiz next Sunday.
In other Kubo topics, I’ve seen Take’s assist to Parejo be described as fortunate or lucky, but I think he meant to do it and it was a really nice piece of innovation by the young player. As Unai says, everything with him is just another part of the process. If his parent club can stay out of it and let the young man grow I think he’ll do very well here.
