Xavi: “It’s a day to enjoy”

Anna Segura

Xavi Hernàndez was a happy man in his press conference today at the Ciutat Esportiva. Well, he has good reason to be after participating in the amazing 5-0 win over Real Madrid.

FC Barcelona midfielder Xavi admitted he’d had trouble sleeping. It’s not every day you put five past Real Madrid and it was hard to come down from the clouds. Being a man with Barça in his DNA, he was as happy as happy could be, and said “I’m delighted to have made the Barça family happy”.

Better than the 6-2

The 6-2 win at the Bernabéu last year is fresh on everybody’s memories, but Xavi actually thought that “although the result was more or less the same, we played even better last night … It was one of the best games of my life. We have done better in other games, but probably never in one quite so important”.

Talking on the pitch

In every way, every facet, we were better”, said Xavi. But he didn’t think they had a point to prove. “We’re just a team that loves to compete and to keep accepting challenges”.

Big blow

Xavi agreed that it was “a big blow for Madrid, now we have to see if they can recover.” In turn, for his own team, he reckoned “it had the opposite effect. It was a huge boost for morale”.

No thoughts of Ballon d’Or
Xavi Hernàndez, with his goal last night, may have moved a step closer to being named the best footballer in the world. But he claims “I’m not thinking about that, I’m thinking about the good of the team.” That said, he didn’t deny that individual accolades are also fantastic to get.
