Barcelona made a big comeback

Barcelona secured second place in LaLiga with Sunday’s draw at Getafe. Still, head coach Xavi Hernandez knows that they need to do a lot better next year and actually compete for trophies. The goalless stalemate at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez was mission accomplished in one sense for the Blaugrana and a reminder of how different they want next season to be. “We always want to win, but the draw was virtually good enough,” Xavi said in his post-game press conference. “We met a minimum demand at Barcelona, which is to play in the Supercopa de Espana. “Now, we can look at what we’ve done since taking over the team. We’ve made a big comeback. I dreamed of winning a trophy, but we didn’t manage that. We’re second, and we haven’t been able to compete with Real Madrid.

Now it’s about working on next season

“We didn’t compete in the Copa del Rey either or the Supercopa de Espana. Now it’s about working on next season, although we also want to show we can beat Villarreal.” The draw ultimately suited both teams, with Getafe securing their LaLiga survival, but Xavi insisted both sides wanted to win. “We went out to win, and so did Getafe,” he said. “In the second half, they didn’t press us so much, and we didn’t attack like usual. But, you see, the result is favourable for you; it’s a reality. But, from there, to talk about anything untoward, no, not at all.” With attention turning to next season, there has been much talk of comings and goings at the Camp Nou, but Xavi was giving nothing away, not about Riqui Puig, Ousmane Dembele or anyone else.

“This week, we’ll do some planning,” he said. “I’m clear on what we need to compete: the board knows it, Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff know it, and we’ll prioritise. Next year we need to compete for titles. We’ll discuss all the names.”
