Barça: Xavi’s strange statement!


By: Manu Tournoux

After FC Barcelona’s defeat against Royal Antwerp (2-3), Xavi gave a rather surprising speech.

By qualifying for the round of 16 of the Champions League, FC Barcelona ended a series of two consecutive failures in the group stage. A strict result which does not eclipse the major current difficulties of the Spanish champion. Beaten against the modest formation of Royal Antwerp (2-3), the Blaugrana were also corrected by their neighbor Girona a few days earlier (2-4).

This delicate period is obviously not without consequences for Xavi’s situation. The Barça coach no longer seems on the same wavelength as his president Joan Laporta. However, the Catalan caught everyone off guard by minimizing the current poor performances.

“Ado about nothing”

We have to remember how we started last season. It was very difficult. At that time we were eliminated from the Champions League, which is not the case today, Xavi said. Obviously today’s performance (Wednesday) was not good, but as I said before, last Sunday’s defeat against Girona (2-4 at home) was much more painful because, despite Today’s defeat, we were already qualified for the next round of the Champions League, which is very important. This is why I find that there is a lot of noise around the team. And we continue to fight in other competitions. » Not sure that these words are enough to calm the Barça environment.
