The Barça coach highlighted the role of the left-back and his contribution to the team after his public complaint

The technician did not feel alluded to and closed the matter: “There is no controversy”

One of the subjects of Xavi Hernández ‘s press conference prior to Barça-Cádiz was Jordi Alba, who showed his displeasure in a publicity act claiming that he preferred that the club face him and showing his displeasure at what happened at the end of the market, when he was related to Inter Milan.

“I can understand Jordi , but beyond statements he is very connected, he is very humble with his situation, very motivated and the other day he came out and was very good. His attitude has not changed, he is pulling the cart because he is one of the captains. And when he plays, he performs. He’s playing, he’s participating and he has to be important. And I’m happy with him. For me it’s very important. The statements thing is normal, it happened to me too”.

Xavi understood that Alba ‘s statements were not for him. “I don’t take the hint. He knows my position. Don’t look for anything… Cádiz tomorrow.” The Egarense coach acknowledged that he spoke with him in the summer, being honest with the footballer. “I try to be very clear with the players and with him, because of the relationship we have, even more so. I don’t want to lose the group, I try to be honest and face it. We have talked a lot, he knows perfectly well that there will be competition and that he will play the that better is. It is not a surprise, it is the world of the football, an obviousness”, argued. 

That yes, before the insistence of the questions, removed iron to the matter. “There is no controversy about it.”
