Valencia Made Barca Suffer For The Three Points –Xavi

Barcelona coach Xavi says his team were made to suffered for the three points in Sunday’s La Liga game.

Recall that Barca defeated Valencia 1-0 thanks to Raphinha’s match winner.

Reacting to the win, Xavi insisted that the team suffered to pick the three points.

“We suffered too much. We had many chances to score the second, but it happened to us many times and it’s something we have to correct. It can’t be that we have to finish games like that when we have chances. We have to learn how to close out games,” said Xavi after the 1-0 victory.

“It’s a shame because they are games that we could talk about winning comfortably, but our lack of effectiveness makes us suffer until the end. Even more so today with the sending off”.

On Ronald Araujo’s red card, he was blunt: “It’s clear, we have to be honest. It’s a shame, it was our ball, controlled, we didn’t clear it well and that’s what happened. Nothing to say”.

Regarding the mess of the penalty squabble between Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati, Xavi explaned: “There is an order. We communicate it to the players. Then there are changes, Kessie has come in and he is also a good shooter. But Ferran was on the list, yes, it’s true that if they have a positive feeling and they talk about it, they can change.

“But there is a list, an order. Even so, it’s good that a player wants to shoot, it shows desire and ambition.”
