The Catalan midfielder reckons the team are “putting in a great season” and after last night’s qualification for the Champions League quarter finals “we feel strong and dominant”
Xavi was subbed when the scores stood at 3-0 and Messi had already got his hat trick, but still had two more to score and he believes the Argentinean is "the best player in the world- maybe the best of all times. Football is moving on, but he stays the same. He deserves the admiration of any sportsman. He is incomparable, a one-off. There is no other player who can make such a difference - he'll break all the records".
With the team through to the quarter finals, Xavi was asked about the possibility of a final against Real Madrid: "that's just a hypothetical possibility. There's the draw and many games to play before that – and Madrid still have to play their second leg game".
Xavi also expressed his satisfaction with his own form: "I'm happy with my season so far – not just for my goals, but also because I've been involved in a lot of games and only had a few slight injuries. I'm in good form and helping the team". Xavi has played 36 games so far this campaign and scored 12 goals – just two short of his all time best for the Club. (via FCBarcelona.cat)
