Xavi: “The team is playing very well”

Roger Bogunyà

Xavi Hernández was impressed with FC Barcelona’s performance as they swept to victory against Levante on Saturday evening thanks to a hat-trick from Thierry Henry.

The Barça captain stated that he feels “the team is playing very well” and that he thinks that all the players are “playing very well”.

Deco agreed and pointed to the fact that the side is playing well despite the fact that there are a number of players still missing through injury.

Below is what some of the players had to say after the game.


"It is well known that things can turn from optimism to pessimism in a week, but things are working."

"It was important to score a third because we had a lot of space and that was why we were able to score the goals at the start of the season half. They wanted to try and play offside."

"Henry always creates three or four chances and today he made us of them."


"The move for my goal was very fast. Deco found me with a spectacular pass and I was one against one with the defender, which is what I like."

"He was able to score the goals that he was looking for. I am very happy for Henry."


"Messi makes one-on-ones look incredibly easy."

"We have played well. In the first half we created chances and scored."

"We are in good form despite the injuries that we have suffered. The team is improving and growing."

"We have won away from home and our intention was to add points and gain confidence."

"Touré's injury is a shame. He is in great form."

"I will not play in Touré's position."


"The team is playing well in every position. Now we are scoring too and that was what cost us at the start of the season."

"There has to be a calm environment because things do not work when their is anxiety, as the desire and quality is there."

"This season will be very hard because there are difficult games coming every week."

"I think that we have a great team."


"The win is important to keep going at the top."

"Puyol said to me that it was not a penalty, but what is more important is the final result."

"We have done things well, we have taken our chances and, in particular, we have kept possession of the ball."

"I do not think that the team has changed. I believe that the media talks a lot, but we had played the same and the results have now come our way."

"We try to play every game by showing complete respect to our opponents."
