Barcelona president credits ‘decisive’ Xavi with LaLiga win
The Blaugrana were able to win the LaLiga championship this season, according to Barcelona President Joan Laporta, thanks in large part to Xavi.
Following Sunday’s victory over Espanyol, Barcelona president Joan Laporta credited coach Xavi Hernandez with helping the Blaugrana win their first LaLiga championship in four years.
Xavi is praised as “crucial” by Laporta.
In his first season as coach, the former Barcelona midfielder helped the Blaugrana win the LaLiga championship while also inspiring them to play some exquisite football, and Laporta was all praise for him.
Laporta said, “Xavi has been decisive,” after the league title was secured with a victory over fierce local rivals Espanyol. His understanding of football, the club, and our playing style has been essential.
He put a lot of effort into making sure we play good football. Congratulation to him is due. We are thrilled to have such a great coach. ”.
With the League title, Xavi helps Barcelona’s season.
Barcelona’s failure to advance past the group stage of the UEFA Champions League for the second consecutive season had prompted some to criticize Xavi, but the Spanish manager has turned the team’s season around with victories in the Supercopa de Espana and the current LaLIga.
On their way to their first LaLiga championship in four years, his team was able to pick up 27 victories in 34 games, thanks to stellar performances from goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, forward Robert Lewandowski, and a backline that included Ronald Araujo, Jules Kounde, and Alejandro Balde, who scored one of the goals against Espanyol in the championship game.
