Barcelona coach Javi Hernandez has revealed the truth about a dispute between him and Portuguese player João Felix.
Blaugrana have announced their contract with Atlético Madrid’s Felix during the summer transfer period amid news that the manager has refused to attend the player.
The Catalan team faced their colleague Osasuna in the fourth round of the 2023-2024 Spanish Premier League and won two to one.
The El Sadar Stadium, Osasuna’s stronghold, saw the away team win with two goals from Conde and Robert Lewandowski against the home team’s goal scored by Ávila.
Thus, Barça finished third in the La Liga standings with 10 points, while Osasuna froze in tenth place in the La Liga standings with 6 points.
Xavi praises Joao Felix after Barcelona win over Osasuna
Xavi spoke during the press conference, saying, “Cancello? This helps us develop deeper to fill the middle of the field more and excel there. Joao can give us that, although Sergi Roberto, Balde or Marcos can do it too. The idea is always to control the game.
He emphasized: “Felix? We have to put Joao Felix as striker or left winger because that’s how Barcelona can get the most out of him. I liked Joao, they made an addition and helped us in this very difficult situation, but I want to single out Joao Felix, because he can help us a lot.
Boss continued barcaWe have to demand more of ourselves, we have dominated a few times, but we need to create more chances. I will stay for the second half against Villarreal, I think he was great. Today we lacked brilliance, distribution, and the opponent interfered with us, closing the depth.
And he concluded: “Al-Jawawin? They were very helpful, they worked for the team and that is non-negotiable, after that they will have fun and the bench has a lot to offer us, Inigo for example.
