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