Xavi spoke to the press ahead of Barca vs Getafe

Xavi on Ronald Araujo’s participation against Getafe:

“He fainted against Celta but he wants to play tomorrow, which means a lot to us. It depends on his feelings.”

Xavi on tomorrow’s game:

“We want to take a step forward, we will try to create chances and win tomorrow.”

Xavi on the signings for the next season:

“As a coach, I will take responsibility for making decisions and communicating them to the management. Things depend on our economic situation. In a few days, we will know our situation and start planning for the next season.”

Xavi on Frenkie’s de Jong’s situation:

“Frenkie de Jong is an important player for me and he started in every game except for a few rotations. It depends on the economic condition of the club but I’m not talking about Frenkie but in general.”

Xavi on selling players in the summer:

“Are some players not for sale? Absolutely. However, we have to determine that by knowing our specific economic situation.”

Xavi on Morata being linked to Barca:

“Morata? I will not answer any questions about players who are not part of our team, it will not help us.”

Xavi on winning titles:

“I’m an optimist, I think the team has to be competitive. We didn’t manage to compete at a high level this season but we have to fight for trophies next season. We are Barca.”

Xavi on Lewandowski:

“I’m not going to talk about Lewandowski but I will remind you that I signed Dani Alves. All we care about is a professional mentality. Players like Modric, Ronaldo, and Messi. They are all still playing at a high level. Age isn’t an obstacle.”

Xavi on strengthening the squad:

“It is essential to have two players in each position. ”

Xavi on exits in the summer transfer window:

“We have not yet talked to players who are not in our plans for next season, because the season is not over. We need them all 100%. We will finish the season and then we will talk.”

Xavi on Balde:

“We really appreciate him. He trains with the team. Tomorrow he will be on the squad list and may get minutes.”

Xavi on Getafe:

“Getafe has improved a lot with Quique Sachez Flores. We have to play better than we did against Celta and be competitive. We will go out to win and go for the 3 points.”

Xavi on Nico going on loan:

“He is an important player for me. He has also scored goals, and I’m glad he’s helping us.”

Xavi on the game against Celta Vigo:

“We analyzed the game after against Celta Vigo, we watched videos. If you want to play football well, you must not lose the ball.”

Xavi on Adama’s role:

“We will make a decision as soon as we know the club’s situation. It is true he played well when he came, but he is in a competitive position with Ferran & Dembele. When Adama was superior to Dembele, he was playing. We make choices in every match.”

Xavi on the age limit as a criterion to sign new players:

“We want to sign players who can make the difference and help the team to improve. Certainly, a player between the age of 25 to 33 is more mature than a young player. Age is not a priority for us, but we can take that into account in our choices.”

That concluded Xavi’s pre-match press conference.
