The coach of Barcelona, Xavi, feels happy with the qualification to the next stage of the Champions League, but added that the problems are not chosen with this qualification.
Xavi can breathe easy. After some narrow wins and defeats, Barça had to exorcise the ghosts by qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League.
“Very happy for the team and the club. We needed it, above all, after two years of experiencing the misfortune of playing in the Europa League”, Xavi initially said after the match.
“We played a good game against a great team. We reacted well, with a winning mentality. The equalizing goal was very good for us and we were at a good level in the second half.”
“We gradually went from less to more. We took a very important step forward, not only because of the classification. The game is good. We gained trust”.
Demands do not decrease
However, Xavi makes it clear that this victory will not help to eliminate the doubts that have been planted about his figure as a coach.
“Problems are never solved at Barça. I feel pleasure, they don’t release me from anything because I wasn’t in prison; The feeling is one of joy and peace.”
“This was a day to congratulate the club and the team because this is the process of the project,” concluded the Barcelona coach.
