Xavi’s scathing new release!

This is what we will call a complicated Saturday for FC Barcelona. Under pressure, the Blaugranas traveled to Girona with the obligation to win. Already, to prevent Real Madrid from becoming champion of Spain for the 36th time in its history. Just before the whistle for their match, Barça was able to notice that the Merengues had won 3-0 against Cadiz. The other goal for FC Barcelona was regional pride. Second before challenging its neighbor Girona, the Catalan club wanted to stay ahead of its opponent in the standings. Two objectives which were not achieved. Leading 2-1 until the 65th minute, FC Barcelona completely collapsed with a double from Portu and a goal from Miguel Gutierrez synonymous with a 4-2 defeat.

A big disappointment for FC Barcelona, ​​one more for Xavi and his men who broke down again like against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League (4-1) or Real Madrid in La Liga (3-2). Despite being dominant for the majority of the game, the Blaugranas showed major mental shortcomings, especially after Portu’s equalizer. A scenario that clearly doesn’t appeal to Xavi, the FC Barcelona coach. After the meeting, he did not mince his words: “We give the matches, we give them away. This happens to us against Madrid, Girona, the day against Paris…” Quite annoyed, the 2010 World Champion then wanted to develop his position.

Xavi looks for the faults of his Barça

Trying to find explanations for this new failure of his team, he pointed the finger at the youth of his group and the few errors which led to this new disappointment: “I want to think that is part of the immaturity of some footballers. I leave very disappointed, because we were so superior for an hour. We didn’t reach the score of 1-3 and on top of that you give them three goals.” A mental problem that can recur in the future and that Xavi intends to correct.

The Spanish coach believes that these mental flaws have led to this complicated season of FC Barcelona more than the content offered to his team: “We prepare for games very well, but then we make glaring mistakes that have marked our season. The hour we spent was great, but the result doesn’t prove you right at all. The last 20 minutes were not up to the Barcelona players.” Congratulating Girona for qualifying for the Champions League and Real Madrid for their title, Xavi also explained that this result was not going to matter for his continuity next season with the Blaugrana. There is no doubt, however, that this new release will get people talking on the other side of the Pyrenees.
