Xavi’s media briefing after the 2-1 win against Mallorca

Xavi on the match against Mallorca:

“Everyone did a great job. I’m satisfied with the result.”

Xavi on Pique’s discomfort:

“Pique was feeling good before the match. He started very well, but then he felt discomfort and asked for a substitution. I thank Gerard for his leadership. The team needs him, when he plays we feel more secure.”

Xavi on the result of the match:

“I’m satisfied with the result. It was a crucial win. It could have been 3-0, but they made it 2-1. During the week we talked about minimizing mistakes and in the end, we ended up suffering.”

Xavi on Real Madrid winning the League:

“I want to congratulate Real Madrid on their well-deserved league title. Now our goal is to win the rest of the matches and to qualify for the Champions League.”

Xavi on Memphis Depay:

“I’m not talking about the future, I’m talking about the present and the games to come. Memphis played today because he had a sensational week of training. Another player would have lowered his arms and he hasn’t, we need players with this attitude and mentality.”

Xavi on Ansu Fati’s comeback:

“I’m very happy with Fati’s return, he’s a special player. He’s a great player and we’ve been missing him for months. I see Ansu Fati as more of a number 9 ( Striker ).”

Xavi on losing possession in the game too many times:

“We’ve lost many unnecessary balls today. We have to improve, but despite these mistakes I’m satisfied.”

Xavi on Gavi’s character, renewal, and untied laces:

“Gavi has a tremendous character, hopefully, his renewal will be done soon. He says that he’s comfortable with his laces untied.”

Xavi on Ferran Torres:

“I’m not worried about Ferran’s lack of goals, this is a path through which he has scored and assisted. He’s creating spaces. I’m very satisfied with him, how he works and how humble he is, the goals will come. I ask him not to stop and just keep going.”

Xavi on Frenkie de Jong as a difference-maker:

“I told Frenkie that he must constantly make a difference, I told him that there are few players in the world with his qualities.

Xavi on this season’s objectives:

“We have two objectives for this season. The first is to get into the Champions League, which also provides financial funds. Then, of course, win the rest of the remaining games this season.”

Xavi on Fan’s not coming to Camp Nou:

“We have to encourage the fans to come to Camp Nou more, but I think it’s positive to see how they encourage us.”

That concluded Xavi’s post-match media briefing.
