Xavi Hernández attended the media at the press conference prior to Monday's game against Cádiz. The coach from Egar recognized that Thursday's elimination was a 'hammer blow', but he hopes to turn the page immediately in LaLiga
Xavi Hernández desveló the state anímico of the FC Barcelona after the elimination of the Europe League in front of the Eintracht. In the previous press conference to the party of the Monday in front of the Cádiz, the míster recognised that "it was a 'stick' hard, have deleted us of a tournament that expected to win and go in directly in the Champions and have not achieved it. It is a 'blow', but have to resarcirnos", explained the technician egarense.
On the party, the one of Terrassa ensured that had bad feelings from the start. "They launched us of all to the coach and do not feel us home, committed a penalti in the first minutes... It was a fateful night in all the senses, sportive and institutional. The night began badly and finish badly", argued Xavi that, in this sense, asked the support of the fans for this Monday. "We expect tomorrow see a good environment as in almost all the parties less in the last. Tomorrow we need them more than ever", it manifested.
Likewise, the trainer culé considers that the best way to recover the spirit of the group is doing him see to the players what are not doing well. "We go by the good way, but the results have to go arriving. It is necessary to take out the pride and throw this advance. Like minimum, have to classify us for the Champions", expressed Xavi that, of equal way, valued the capacity of the Barça for sobreponerse to the hit of the Thursday.
"Yes I see to the team with capacity to win the eight parties that subtract us, but also is complicated. The Cádiz (Monday) comes playing the permanence, the Real Sociedad (Thursday) to play in Europe, the Ray (Sunday) not to go down... It goes us the life, but it is necessary to follow believing in the project. Have an intense week and it is necessary to begin to compete from morning", sentención the míster.
Go back to the Champions League and 'grow' in Europe, the great goal of Barça
For Xavi, Barça's great goal for the remainder of the season is to win the remaining "eight finals" in LaLiga and ensure, at the very least, qualification for the next Champions League. For the culé coach, the team needs to be more competitive, since five or six years ago they have not competed well enough in Europe. "But we have to keep believing in the project, we competed well in Naples, not against Eintracht, but there are green shoots. We have to improve, it's evidence too," synthesized the coach.
Regarding the mathematical chances of winning LaLiga, the Egarense coach was blunt: "Sevilla-Real Madrid will be interesting, but what we do against Cádiz matters a lot to us. If Madrid lose we have a chance, but if we don't win tomorrow, It doesn't matter; or if we don't win the rest, it won't either. The first objective is to be in the Champions League next season. If then we get to compete in the League, the better", he pointed out.
