Xavi Slams Barca, Makes Big Real Madrid Claim

Xavi Hernandez Slams FC Barcelona, Makes Big Real Madrid Claim

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jun 01, 2018 03:31 PM @KurtLaduma

FC Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez has slammed his former team for being "asleep", and also made a huge claim about Real Madrid's recent UEFA Champions League win.

Zidane: Why I Decided To Quit Real

Los Blancos won their third consecutive UCL title this past weekend, when they beat Liverpool 3-1 courtesy of a goal from Karim Benzema and a brace from Gareth Bale.

Xavi has now claimed that although Real had some luck on their way to the final, they are winning because of their mentality, while his former club is falling behind due to the club not signing the right players.

"Madrid have a winning gene and Barcelona have fallen asleep," he said, according to Marca.

"They've been asleep for years when it comes to signings, and those who are signing players don't know what to do. That takes its toll.

"Real Madrid had everything in their favour: injured players like Neymar, Robben, Boateng, the referees, the most important player in Liverpool who they hurt, the Bayern and Liverpool goalies who messed up. It looks like witchcraft."

Official: Zidane Announces Shock Real Madrid Departure

Xavi left the Catalan giants three years ago, after making 769 appearances between 1998 and 2015 for the Blaugrana.

Hoping that the new manager & the players that will remain and be signed will continue with the dominance of Los Blancos in UCL until every get used to the fact that Real Madrid is not just a football Club but an unattachable football institution

Kikkkkkk. Xavi is stil traumatized. Madrid refuse to give the La liga champions a guard of honour and then go on to win THE champions league. This is like spitting in another man's face.

Yeah l see Real Madrid's success is hurt many people even retied legend, they think this team is using winning (muthi) portion, but when Madrid players they do say it out, if the opponents are making mistakes take advantage n punish them

That's how a bitter man sounds like. Sorry man sometimes enthusiasm not just talent can work 4 a team. Barca are lacking that otherwise they do have talent, u would notice that when they performed poorly though my beloved Chelsea was a weak team this season.

I dont understand how any sane person, be it a Barca or Madrid fan can disagree with what Xavi said, indeed Real were really lucky at times this season and Xavi stated the incidents...nothing wrong with what he said

Real Madrid had everything in their favour, the same favour Barca have been enjoying since the days of E'to, Ronaldinho & co till this present moment with Messi & co.
