Xavi: “It’s a giant step to win this League”


The coach of FC Barcelona, ​​Xavi Hernández, highlighted the good performance of his team in the victory (4-0) this Saturday against Real Betis, a “giant step to win” a League that he sees very close, with “good feelings “and the game recovered after Vallecas.

“Today it required a reaction and it has been good. It has been a significant improvement, from the whole team. The first minutes are very good and with the expulsion we face it, but we were on the right track,” he said at a press conference at the Camp Nou.

“There is a tremendous illusion and it is a giant step to win this League. We are very close to winning a League, the people are very excited. We have won well. We were going to have a good game anyway 11 against 11. I have good feelings about face to get the title. Today it was our turn to play with one more”, he added.

The culé coach thus explained the good disposition of a Barça that also benefited from the two yellow cards that Edgar saw in the first minutes. “It was important to have an identity, which we didn’t have in Vallecas, and that’s how it has been. Whoever plays, our game model,” he said.

On the other hand, Xavi praised Busquets, wishing him to continue at Barça next season, and valued Lamine Yamal’s 15-year-old debut. “He is capable of doing things. He has innate talent. He doesn’t seem to be 15 years old. I have seen him prepared and he has shown himself in 10 minutes, with self-confidence. A footballer who can mark a stage in the club”, he finished.
