‘Xavi is following the same path as Guardiola’: La Masia graduate Muniesa

“Pep Guardiola had a privileged look and I think Xavi is following the same path.

At least the intention, the philosophy, the knowledge he has,” former Barcelona player Marc Muniesa has said, as quoted by Diario Sport.

“And now he needs a couple of good results to accompany it for this to move forward and people to get motivated. I think that the youngsters he has and veterans are already motivated.

“He already says that he suffered without the ball. I don’t think there are many differences. Perhaps aggressiveness.

“When he’s on the sideline, he puts a lot of pressure.

To the rivals, to the referees, to his own players… he has a lot of character, besides being a close uncle who makes jokes, he has character.

“When it’s time to squeeze, he will squeeze. We will have to be careful not to read his lips.”

Muniesa has been playing in Qatar for the last two years so he should know Xavi as a coach better than many.
