Xavi (Barcelona): “Gavi is a marvel”

Rewarded with the Kopa Trophy at the last Ballon d’Or ceremony, Gavi succeeded Pedri, a teammate at FC Barcelona. The two players, aged 18 and 19 respectively, embody the future of the Blaugranas. At a press conference, Xavi praised his young foal, without falling into the pitfall of drawing a parallel with his elder.

“Well done to Gavi. We’ve already praised him in the dressing room, but he also deserves public kudos. I think he is an extraordinary footballer. He is also quite unique in his genre because he is on both sides, defensive and offensive. Defensively, it’s a marvel. And then in attack, he sees everything. He has the physical form, he goes between the lines, he enters the box, he is brave, and he is only 18 years old. Yes, it is a marvel”detailed the Catalan technician in front of the media.

“Pedri and Gavi are alike, but each must have their own personality, make their career and there must be no comparisonhe continued. They look alike, yes, but they should not be compared. They both have an extraordinary present and future. For me, these are two guarantees of the team’s success. »
