Xavi: “We don’t play to shut up, but for the fans and anyone who wants the club to do well”


In the battle for the phase of “16”. Champions League enters on Wednesday (21/02, 22:00) h Barcelonatraveling to Italy for the first match with Naples.

In view of this confrontation, Mr Xavi spoke of the great motivation of the “blaugrana” to qualify for the quarter-finals again after some years of failure, but also of the unpredictable nature of Naples due to the recent change of coach.

In detail what he said:

“We want to reach the quarter-finals, we have the conditions to play a big game and we have to talk on the pitch. Napoli changed managers in impressive fashion and they will surely have their reasons.

This is a coach who has already worked there. It is not easy to prepare the match with this change of coach but we will have to show personality, in defense and attack, because we will play against the champions of Italy.

Politano, Osimen and Kvaratshelia make up a great attack, they are first level players. The pair will be 50-50. We got La Liga and they got the Scudetto, our season like theirs is strange. We don’t play to keep our mouths shut, but for the fans and anyone who wants the club to do well. We don’t sign for the draw.

On Wednesday we will not focus on criticism or injustices but on the quarter-finals, a goal that we have not achieved for two years.”
