The former Blaugrana captain has also given his thoughts on Denis Suárez coming to Barça
Former Barça captain Xavi Hernández is currently in Catalonia spending his summer holidays. The player talked to TV3 yesterday, in an interview that saw him going over the main topics in Blaugranas' news, from Denis Suárez's signing to the supposed persecution on the club. These are the highlights of this interview.
"It is a great signing, he has done two very good seasons in Seville and Villarreal"
"I have a lot of affection for him, I met him when he was in the reserve team and started to train with us. He is a good kif and he deserves success"
"I would be glad that he wears number 6"
"His renewal is one of the big summer news for Barça"
"He is a spectacular player, one of the best in the world and meant to be Messi's successor"
"If there is someone that can change English football, it is Pep"
"Pep is a master coach: tactically no one is better and he lives football like nobody else"
"I trust him and his staff a lot, and I wish them the best because I appreciate them a lot"
"Leo is a player that has been through a lot. The legal issue has been on him for years and he has still been the best in the world"
"I'm sad for him, because he is a very good guy and he surely doesn't have nothing to do with what is happening to him"
"Hopefully Messi's case is solved soon. Barça needs him quiet and happy"
"I have already said that wen Barça is doing good, those things happen. Coincidence? It's arguable."
"When Barça was doing badly, nobody was investigating"
"On the contrary when Barça does good, people seem to be looking to put obstacles"
