Xavi surrenders to Busquets, Eric and Jordi Alba

  •  The Barcelona coach has spared no praise when he was asked about the three proper names

Xavi Hernández, during the preview of the match between Barcelona and Levante, spared no praise when talking about three proper names in his squad. It was especially clear with Sergio Busquets whom he described as the best midfielder in the world although, with a different profile, he also highlighted Casemiro, from Real Madrid. “Busquets, with Casemiro’s permission, is the best defensive pivot by far. Everything he does is extraordinary and even so he has been one of the most criticized in the club. What Busquets gives us is not given by anyone else. He has rope for a while When we are a block, Busi does not suffer and then with the ball he is excellent. Finding a substitute will not be easy at all. We have Frenkie and Nico who can play there. For me, Busquets is fundamental”, he insisted.

Another proper name from the press conference was that of Jordi Alba, another veteran who was also Xavi’s teammate during his time as a player. “He’s a competitive beast and a physical animal,” he commented. “For me he is undervalued, both in attack and defence. The leadership he exerts in the team is a spectacle. We have unnatural replacements like Óscar or Sergiño. It is time to ask the team for an effort because we play everything in four or five weeks. The team has the quality to get the games going”

Finally, he also praised Eric Garcia, who was one of the most outstanding players against Eintracht. “We are very happy with Eric. He marks the defensive line wonderfully and has leadership. With the ball he gives us a lot, he has been a central defender for many years for Barça. Without a doubt”.
