Xavi Hernandez was pleased with the El Clasico result, but he made it clear that the result cannot make his team look good. In addition, he asked for more signatures.
Barcelona won the El Clasico match against Real Madrid with a clean score of 3-0, held in the United States of America, as part of the pre-season preparations of the two clubs.
After the match, the coach of Barcelona, Xavi, spoke, who was happy with the victory, but still requires more from the team, but also from the leaders in terms of reinforcements.
“The result is very favorable, but that doesn’t mean we had a great game. Madrid has a much bigger team than ours. They are shedding players and still have a number of opportunities. They have an excellent team”, said Xavi first after the match.
“I am satisfied with the way we competed, but there are many things that need to be improved and in many moments we resembled what we want to be.”
“It’s always better to win and I’m happy, but we’re in a pre-season process. I told the players that we weren’t that bad the other day or that good the other day. I think Madrid played good football”.
“I think we have come close in many moments to what we want to be. Let’s not lose it, attack the space. Let’s not have unnecessary perfidies. We are training well. We are on the right track and this is just beginning. I am happy with the result and with the Catalans, but our target is 13th against Getafe”.
“What’s missing? I think we are missing some things. We need to get a little stronger. The president and sports leaders know this. To be competitive, we have to get stronger.”
“Europe? I have a lot of faith in this team, but I think we need something more. My pending task as a coach is to compete more there. We don’t hide. It is one of the objectives of the season”, concluded the coach of Barcelona.
