Barcelona’s problem is not Xavi, it’s Real Madrid – Quique Sanchez Flores

Sevilla boss Quique Sanchez Flores defended Xavi again after Sunday’s La Liga clash between the two sides that resulted in a 2-1 win for the Catalans.

Sanches Florez hit out at Barca for the way they treat their legends before the game and was asked about the club again after the match.

The Sevilla boss insisted that Xavi is not Barcelona’s biggest problem and praised the coach for the job he’s done at Camp Nou.

“I value Xavi a lot as a coach, I value the League he achieved last year. And I admired him as a footballer, like all of you,” he told reporters.

“He seems like an honest guy who says what he thinks. He has had a transition period and I have told him so. Barcelona has a problem and it’s not Xavi, it’s Real Madrid.”

Madrid finished the season 10 points clear of Barcelona and still have a Champions League final to look forward too. Carlo Ancelotti’s side also look set to strengthen in the summer by bringing in Kylian Mbappe from PSG.
