Xavi Hernández was well pleased with Barca’s progress into the UCL knock out when he spoke to reporters at the Nou Camp this morning and he insisted that the positive mentality of the squad had been key in the recent run of fine form.

The Catalan midfielder commented: “since the Getafe game our attitude has really improved, we’ve rolled up our sleeves and got down to work and are going out to win right from the start. We’re much more positive now”.

Marc Ingla, Edmilson and Ronaldinho

Xavi also dealt with a number of issues which have been surrounding the team, firstly commenting on the presence of new Sporting Director Marc Ingla: “he told us here was here to help and just like us, he was after the best for the team and for the club”. Edmilson’s recent declarations were also brought up, but Xavi insisted: “that’s something which is done and dusted and sorted out amongst the squad”.

Finally, Xavi assured the media that Ronaldinho had reacted well to his sitting on the bench on Tuesday: “he took it well – it’s just part of football and I think the best thing would be to give him some space. He really reacted well and if the boss takes that decision then that’s all there is to it”.
