The chapter of Ronald Koeman as Barcelona manager is already closed, it is now time for the Xavi Hernandez era. He had his first press conference today and he immediately made a difference that Ronald Koeman did not.
If there is anything that Ronald Koeman never got right at Barcelona it would be his words that definitely lowers the standard of the club and gives the players low mentality, lack of hunger and desire to succeed but in Xavi's first press conference, he has made it clear the need for a tough mentality.
“We have to work a lot every single day. We’re Barcelona, the best club in the world," Xavi said. This is the only way to get big results. We want to play good football. I’ll give everything to make it work.
"We are the best club in the world and we are going to work to try and win many titles. Barcelona cannot lose or draw, we have to win every single game. I arrive at a delicate moment, but I feel prepared. I know that we are generating enthusiasm and it is necessary to put order and have the maximum demand. There is a team that will do great things."
Xavi will undertake his first training session tomorrow with players who are not on international break. His first game will be the Catalonia derby match against Espanyol.
