Barcelona’s win over Villarreal on Sunday made it 16 wins in a row for Xavi. It’s the Barcelona coach’s best ever sequence in his managerial career so far.
Xavi praised a number of his players and spoke about the big gap his team now has at the top of La Liga following Sunday’s win at Villarreal.
Rafa Marquez’s Barca Atletic side drew 1-1 with Amorebieta on Sunday. The Catalans took the lead through Antonio Aranda but conceded just after the hour.
Alejandro Balde was full of praise for center-back Ronald Araujo after the win over Villarreal. The defender described his team-mate as a “beast” after another impressive showing.
Sunday’s match against Villarreal was the first this season in which Ansu Fati has not featured either as a starter or a substitute in La Liga.
Ansu Fati’s agent, Jorge Mendes, will not make a decision on the striker’s future until the end of the season and thinks the youngster can turn his situation at the club around.
Mário Celso Petraglia, the president of Athletico Paranaense, has admitted there’s plenty of interest in young star Vitor Roque but no team has reached their asking price yet.
