“I said during the presentation that I can't talk about what happened before (under Ronald Koeman) because I wasn't there. Now I have seen great predispositions and I like what I see. We have a team and we are happy with it. But they will evaluate us according to tomorrow's match (derby against Espanyol, this Saturday at 9 p.m.). It's positive that the things we see are working. ” Gentleman or simply in the norm. We do not judge the work of the predecessor. Appointed on November 6, presented to the press on November 8, Xavi had ten days to lay the foundations for his indefinite mandate. Xavi knows, time is running out. From home or away, it must bring results.

Ninth, eleven lengths from the lead, FC Barcelona is already six points behind Atlético de Madrid, current fourth and last qualified for the Champions League. In recent hours, Xavi and his staff have talked a lot. The idea is to instill in everyone, and in a short time, the procedure to follow. But the players are not fooled, only victory counts. “I don't know (how long we need to relieve the club, editor's note). We will see, this is an unknown quantity. This week we have been very busy in discussions to explain what we expect. Tomorrow we are playing and I hope we can see things. Especially in terms of the result. We try to play good football, but in the end you will judge us on the result, ”Xavi explained at a press conference.
