Xavi: "The penalty to Alexis is very clear"

FC Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernández was very close to one of the controversial plays of the game but is aware of the need to move on.

The Terrassa did not hesitate when asked in the mixed zone for the actions he did not see Eriksson: "The penalty on Alexis is very clear," Xavi said categorically. It was one of the black notes of the crash, as well as the state of San Siro turf. "The field was not well and is key for us is a handicap. Now, we play it all at the Camp Nou" he said.

Despite all this, Xavi also made self-criticism: "We dominated a lot, especially in the first half, but we have forgiven. In turn I think will be a game like this, with Milan closed and looking for the counterattack."

And the message to the fans is as clear as the penalties did not see the Swede Eriksson. "To say that culés as ever and encourage them to come to the field. We want a full Camp Nou. With your help and we can move our game." (via SPORT)
