The victory of FC Barcelona over Valencia (1-0) has not left Xavi Hernández satisfied, who suffered from the stands the lack of success and forcefulness of his team. It does celebrate, on the contrary, the defensive solidity

It is not the first time that Xavi Hernández aims that the FC Barcelona has to improve to offensive level. In the last parties has been more than evident that the team does not cross his best moment of face to the goal, although they have countered it with the defensive tarpaulin. The trainer of Terrassa expects that the team can improve in this appearance in the weeks to come.

Against Valencia, the Barça achieved a trabajadísima victory thanks to the goal that marked Raphinha in the first part. The culés had the opportunity to kill the crash in several occasions, but were not able to generate clear occasions and, those that had, as the one of Ansu Fati to the stick, failed them. Xavi has gone back to stand out that the fault of effectiveness is condemning to the team, although they keep firm in the highest of the classification of LaLiga.

"We have suffered too much. It was moment to mark the 2-0. They have defended well. It has happened us many times this season. Many times we have had the party to sentence: penalti, shot to the stick... And with the expulsion have suffered more", has said the egarense, the one who complains that the Barça follows without closing to time the parties and finish suffering more than the account all the weekends.

It rescues, however, that is key this type of party to grow like team: "it Is a penalty because they are parties that would speak of comfortable victory. The fault of effectiveness does us suffer to the end and more with the expulsion of Ronald. It is moment to suffer with so many drops and have known, does us grow".

Without excuses with Ronald Araújo

Although it has recognised that the Barça suffered a lot with the expulsion of Araújo, Xavi has left clear that it was very deserved and there is not at all that protest: "it Is clear. It is the last man. It is necessary to be honest. It was a balloon controlled by us, do not clear well and a misunderstanding... It is red", adding afterwards that "with 11 are not so solidarios neither generous, there is more space to the back of the defence. But we want to be dominadores of the game".

Likewise, it has done reference tol to controversy between Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres before the collection of the penalti in the second half: "there is an order that communicate them to the footballers. In the list was Ferran. We decide we. Have a list. They are decisions of the staff. But they are feelings, the one who has confidence. Between them they have to speak".

In the same order of ideas, defended to an Ansu Fati that went back to fail and remained in the attempt: "it Is well show ambition, win and responsibility to want to throw. But have an order. It is positive that want to mark and help, his attitude is good".
