Xavi reacts after the 3-1 win against Real Madrid

Xavi spoke about dominating Real Madrid, Gavi’s amazing performance, the confidence given by Laporta, the team’s belief, and the upcoming challenges in his post-match press conference after the 3-1 win against Real Madrid.

Xavi on winning the Spanish Super Cup:

“I am so happy with what my players have done. This title is the result of what we have been working on. We’re on the right track. We were having fun on the pitch.”

Xavi on dominating Real Madrid:

“I am so happy. I care a lot about how we win. It’s important to win, but we need to think about how we did it. We dominated them from start to finish. That was our plan with four midfielders, and it worked so well. I’m so happy for the players.”

Xavi on the unfair criticism of players previously:

“This squad has received a lot of unfair criticism, and today many players have set themselves free. They will work more calmly.”

Xavi on Gavi’s amazing performance:

“Gavi is spectacular. He can never stop growing, we all know that. Today, we won because we were superior in the midfield.”

Xavi on bringing back the positive dynamic:

“These years have been so tough, with our financial difficulties, and Messi’s departure. It’s not easy to bring back a positive dynamic, but I am sure that these players can do that.”

“I’ve been here for so many years and I know how much players suffer when things don’t go well. Today is the start of a new positive dynamic.”

Xavi on the belief among the players:

“It’s so important that players believe in themselves. Today, it was clear from the first minute that the team knew that our game plan would work.”

Xavi on Laporta:

“With Laporta we’re friends. He has given me complete confidence in this project, and I know how hard that is. I’m very happy for him.”

Xavi on the upcoming challenges:

“We can’t relax now. This doesn’t stop here. We have a long road ahead, and our next matches are very complicated.”
