◼️ The Spanish player explained the difference his compatriot makes from the bank and how he knows how to empower each player.
Xavi Hernández praised the figure of Pep Guardiola, taking advantage of the Premier League title recently won by the Catalan coach in charge of Manchester City. “He is one of the two or three best coaches in the world, if he is not the best”, said the Spaniard.
The former midfielder from Barcelona indicated how Guardiola raised the famous game against Real Madrid that ended with a convincing 2-6: “That’s when he put Messi on false nine. He knew that Madrid’s central players wouldn’t press Messi, That meant that he, Iniesta and I would have a two against three in the center of the field, he repeated that that’s where the game was”, he explained about what happened on May 2, 2009 in an interview with the Daily Mail newspaper.
Hernandez, who currently plays for Al-Sadd, said that with Pep in practice he enjoyed himself much more over the course of the days. To finish, and now that he has begun his studies to make the leap to the world of coaches, Xavi is convinced that he can help Qatar in the 2022 World Cup: “I don’t know if as a counselor, coach or assistant, but I will give them a hand for things to go in their best favor. “
