Xavi to be rested
Xavi Hernàndez will be rested this weekend for the game against Zaragoza and will therefore be able to assist at the ceremony of presentation of the Premis Príncep d'Astúries in Oviedo.
The technical staff, doctors and coaches met to discuss the state of Xavi’s troublesome ankle
this morning and decided to rest him for this Saturday’s league game against Zaragoza.
Once the decision had been taken, Xavi was given permission to attend the presentation of the
Premi Príncep d'Astúries dels Esports to the Spanish World Cup winning squad in Oviedo on Friday.
Xavi, who has been suffering with Achilles tendon problems, played for the last 20 minutes of
Wednesday night’s Champions League game against Copenhagen.
