The FC Barcelona coach, Xavi Hernández, has assured that the information that indicates that Argentine striker Sergio ‘Kun’ Agüero should retire due to his heart problem “are not true”, and that the medical results are still pending. to recognize that he has “suffered” in the victory this Saturday against Espanyol (1-0) in his debut as a culé coach.

“I don’t know anything about ‘Kun’ Agüero. I spoke with him the other day. What has come out is not true. We do not have this information, we are talking to him. We will try to make him evolve so that he can continue playing football. He is calm, happy I told him to come back as he was feeling well, but it is a medical issue, “he declared at a press conference.

On the duel, he was “happy” for “the three points and the attitude” of his players. “Afterwards there is always an opponent who presses, and Espanyol have great players and they have pressed us in the last 20 minutes. We have lacked to dominate the game. We have to improve many things, but winning 1-0 we have to have the ball. Obviously We are not in the best mood or confidence. The victory is deserved to start this project, “he said.

Even so, it considers that they should generate “more occasions”. “Espanyol has closed behind and it has been complicated, but we have generated opportunities. We have to work, we will find ourselves many times with this scenario. We have to try to find spaces, two against one on the wing … We have trained some solutions, but we haven’t had much time, “he said.

In this sense, the Catalan technician recalled that they are “building a project.” “Winning in a derby gives us hope. We have suffered it, it is normal because it is a derby. Winning 1-0 we could have made the second, but we have been good for 70 minutes. We have to improve, have patience, long possessions, and there it is when the space is generated, “he explained.

“Today has suffered, it is normal. We have seen Atlético who have suffered, Sevilla have drawn … It is difficult to win. Football has evolved, but you have to prepare because modern football is like that. It has been worth it, it is a derby and we go to sleep happy, “he said. “Tuesday will be another war. It is the ‘Champions’, we must recover the players well because they have made a tremendous effort. It is another final, we are at stake to be in the ‘Champions’. In terms of football we must improve,” he added about the match against Benfica.

In addition, he did not rule out his team from the fight for LaLiga Santander. “Why not? We are Barça. We have to believe it and improve. We have done things very well, others not so well, but the assessment is positive. We have won and suffered,” he said. “We are far away, but there are days left and I am very optimistic,” he concluded.
