Xavi Hernandez has a very close squad and he is not willing for anything or anyone to break it. Not even the ‘Negreira case’. Despite the European disappointments. First falling into the Champions and then in the Europa League, Xavi was able to turn the situation around. He first managed to win the team its first title in the final of the Spanish Super Cup against Madrid. Subsequently, he managed to place the team as an outstanding leader of The league. A win vs Madrid will leave Barca at 12 points and would practically sentence the title. Furthermore, Barca are one step away from standing in the final of the Copa del Rey after the 0-1 of the first leg achieved in the Santiago Bernabeu.
Trying to disconnect from recent scandal
In the midst of this privileged setting, and with the ‘Negreira case’ in full swing after that LaLiga, Madrid, the CSD and finally the Federation will join the cause Xavi He wanted to intervene quickly so that extra-sports activities could not affect the great performance that the group is offering at this stage of the season. Since the prosecution decided to denounce Barca for payments made to the former Vice President of the Technical Committee of Referees for the reports that he and his son made about referees and players for the Barça coaches, Xavi decided to take the bull by the horns.
Waiting for the club and the president Joan Laporta can give the pertinent explanations once the investigation that is being carried out internally and together with an external team of lawyers is concluded, the coach launched a therapy with his players. Xavi knows that the situation is not pleasant for anyone due to all the noise that is being generated outside. This is why he has held group talks with his players. They wanted to ask them to try to focus solely on the ball. The coach and his staff consider that at this point in the league, they cannot be confused for a second. Now it is time for him to join forces to finish off the season in an exceptional way. This is what would result if Barca will earn the titles of League and Copa del Rey.
