Xavi Hernández: “It has been a round night”


The coach of FC Barcelona, ​​Xavi Hernández, described this Saturday night at the Martínez Valero as “round” with the 0-4 win over Elche despite the rotations, a performance that demonstrated the good work and timing of the LaLiga leader Santander.

“It’s been a great night. We’ve had a good game. We’ve played with midfielders who aren’t, like Eric García, who has had a great game. He can be an important defensive pivot. Players who needed him have gained a lot of confidence today”, he said at a press conference.

Besides, the technician culé stood out the importance of the goal of Ansu Fati. “He needed the goal, his face changed. The goal is a consequence of work, if he works he will continue to play, and Ferran too. We have shown that we are a block. It is very good for the team to have these alternatives,” he said.

“It’s a round night, but we have to continue. Everything went well, but tomorrow we’ll think about the Cup final. We played a very serious, solvent game. Elche have worked well, but the thing is that we’re fine,” he added .

“We lack a little more control, but today there were midfielders who are not,” he said. In addition, regarding the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal against Real Madrid on Wednesday, Xavi pointed out that “sure” he will recover Raphinha but Frenkie de Jong is doubtful.
