Xavi Hernández always speaks clear and in his last interview to the newspaper 'The Avant-garde' left several very interesting headlines. The ex midfield player of the FC Barcelona has spoken on his return to the group barcelonista like trainer and has left clear a lot of things. The current technician of the To the-Sadd refused the Barcelona proposal in winter because, as it signals now, wants to lead a project of zero, taking he all the decisions.

"I have clear that I want to go back to the Barça, does me a lot of illusion. The same years backwards could give me some respect, but now that already I have seen me training think that can contribute things to the players. But I left them clear that I saw me in a project that began of zero, and in which the taking of decisions was mine", confessed . The culés precisely asked him that it saved the project of Ernesto Valverde, a stage that the one of Terrassa did not contemplate.

The Catalan did not have problems with the fact that it knew his "no" to the Barcelona and left clear that only would go back with a team of his full confidence. "I do not have any problem: I do not hide me, neither me retracto. It would like me work beside people in those who have confidence, with those who there is loyalty, and that they are people very valid. It can not have anybody toxic near of the changing room", commented, giving even names. "We are speaking of Carles Puyol, that went captain of the Barça, and Jordi Cruyff, very good negociante and with a lot of experience in the technical secretary. I am very of team; I do not want to decide only. Here, the decisions take them with the staff… is a horizontal structure, of consensus. Although afterwards the last word correspond me to me", aimed.

The ex international Spanish wanted to leave clear also that it does not want toxic people in his Barça. It did not give names neither surnames, but sounded to warning of face to the future. "Obviously it would like me have a lot of tuning with all the world. In the changing room can not have anybody negative, toxic, and the medical subject is important… all has to fit. It would like me go in with people of my surroundings to form a good team", insisted.

In this same sense, Xavi admitted that his return will not be tied to a president, although his preferences remained clear with his explanation. "It would not be definite, but insist in that it would like me have total tuning. I do not know if it will be able to give this idealidad... I do not have at all against of anybody; it is more, I do not have bad relation with Bartomeu. Afterwards with Laporta get along and Víctor Font and I are fellow. I will be with all that that want to very to the Barça", recognised.

It spoke of the current staff and of the reinforcements that needs

Changing totally of subject, the one of Terrassa analysed to the current staff culé and praised his quality. "Big part of the staff seems me extraordinary. Beginning by the goalkeeper, that seems me the best of the world; Jordi Alba, for me, is the best left side of the world; I Hammered, the best head office of the world; Busquets, better defensive midfield player of the world; and Messi, the best player of the world. And, if you add them to Suárez, to Of Jong and to Arthur, seem me footballers to triumph ten years more in the Barça. The base is very good", affirmed.

Nevertheless, the ex midfield player ensured that to the Barça is missing him desborde and that he ficharía extremes like Neymar Jr, to the that would bring of turn without doubting, Jadon Sancho or Serge Gnabry. "I ficharía extreme, type Neymar, that do not know if he would fit by the social subject, but futbolísticamente do not have doubts in that it would be a spectacular signing. The Barça already has game inside, but are missing him extreme as has the Bayern. It does not need a lot of new: Jadon Sancho, Serge Gnabry…", finalised, giving some examples.
