By: Manu Tournoux

The Barça goalkeeper admits the players’ feeling of guilt over the announced departure of Xavi Hernandez.

At the end of the season, the former maestro will leave his position as coach of FC Barcelona, ​​weakened by the disappointing results of the Catalans again this season. On the eve of the Champions League round of 16 second leg between the Blaugrana and Napoli (1-1 in the first leg), Marc-André ter Stegen addressed the subject at a press conference.

He announced it and we, who have known him for several years, felt bad because ultimately we are also responsible for these types of decisions. He also told us that he doesn’t stop, that it doesn’t stop, and we know that we must always give the best of ourselves and even more for him », says the German doorman.

And to continue: “ I think he’s a great coach who allowed us to go far again, which we had lacked in recent years. He works very well so that we can always be competitive every three or four days. Obviously, he’s leaving and it’s difficult to accept, as a player and as a friend. »
