Barcelona were beaten 5-3 by Arsenal in a friendly match, where Xavi bitterly complained about the intensity of the opponents.
In addition to the London team’s ruthlessness in the game, the Catalan coach and his training staff believe that Sergino Dest, Sergi Roberto and Marcos Alonso are no longer at the required level, according to what Sport reports.
All three players performed poorly for Barcelona with Arsenal creating many chances from their position.
With Dest and Roberto not doing well on the right wing, Xavi will have no choice but to continue using Jules Kounde there.
On the left wing, Xavi can breathe a sigh of relief as Alejandro Balde came in and played like a machine. Thus, Alonso will continue as a reserve.
It is therefore no surprise that Barca have rekindled their interest in signing talented Spanish right-back Ivan Fresneda.
