Xavi calls a Barcelona star the ‘heart of the team’ – not one of the new signings


Barcelona got a great victory over Real Betis on Saturday with a result of 5-0, where the new arrivals also shone.

Although he didn’t score, Gavi received a lot of praise from coach Xavi Hernandez after the game.

“It is difficult for me to remove Gavi from the field. He is fast, makes recoveries, great pressure”.

“Gavi is the heart of the team, he is an essential player. Many said that he would play less this season, but he is an exemplary footballer”, said Xavi.


Gavi has started in every win for Barça this season, scoring one goal and helping them dominate many games.

It seems clear that he is one of Xavi’s favorites and is expected to play as a starter in the future.
