The market of signings of the summer 2019 arrives loaded of action, but is not the only that leaves relative news to the FC Barcelona. Since it announced that it hanged the boots, Xavi Hernández has been related with frequency with the bench of the Camp Nou, one put to which aspires but for which has left clear that would like him prepare before reaching.

The one who supports this decision is Carles Puyol, another of the mythical captains barcelonistas and mate of the egarense during a lot of years. In an interview conceded to the agency EFE, the one who was central culé has given some councils to his fellow, and has asked calm to the fans: "With Xavi it is necessary to have patience. The people wants to see it already of trainer of the Barcelona and am safe that a day goes it to be. First it is necessary to prepare, because so fast go up you as you fall you if they do not go out the results".

"To me, like culé, also would like me see it like trainer, but as fellow recommend him that it go little by little and that already will occur in the moment that touch", has valued, insisting in a speech that already has underlined the today technician of the To the-Sadd, and is that it does not want to confront to a so demanding stage if it does not have sufficient experience and guarantees that it will be able to help to the team.

Questioned by the moment of form of the Barcelona staff, the one of The Pobla of Segur has admitted that in this course has touched to live hard moments, but that it is necessary to take into account the merits accumulated: "No always it can win. There were a lot of hopes, but the health of the Barcelona is well. Winning eight leagues of the last eleven it is necessary to give him value to this. To all had liked us another end, but no always can be".

The Catalan has thought on the defeats in the Champions and the Glass of Rey, and has ensured that, under his point of view, are totally related, because the first could finish precipitating the second: "Although the people no creates it to him, are not machines and the football also are states of spirit. Fall by 4-0 in front of the Liverpool left very 'touched' to the barcelonista but also to the changing room".

To the hour to speak on Ernesto Valverde, Puyol has warned that "in a team win all and lose all". After refusing that the critical have to be centred on the extremeño, has defended that in spite of his adjust, "the Boat is above the people, trainers and players and has a philosophy that does not go to change".

"The same we are speaking that it does not have the players of before. They are very good, but have gone Xavi, Andrés Iniesta, that are players that have marked a period so much in the Barcelona as in the selection, to world-wide level, and that they were perfect for the style of the Barcelona to have the balloon. The same that the day that was not Leo Messi, for me the best player of the history. Find another goes to be impossible... But I think that the Barcelona follows with this philosophy, although with other players", has analysed.

Puyol Opens the door to a return to the Barça

With regard to his own return to the Barça, Puyol has showed very careful, although it has indicated the place that would prefer to occupy: "When you leave to play is not easy to find to where want to direct you. Xavi has it very clear, wants to be trainer. To me always it has liked me more the sportive direction. But still it is not the moment and do not know if in a future will be in the Barcelona. But, if it went in, where would like me is in the sportive direction".
