Xavi: Barcelona Have Forgotten Their Ideals

Barcelona legend, Xavi says Barcelona have forgotten their ideals, with La Masia graduates getting less time to shine.

Xavi played in a time when La Masia graduates shined at the club and Guardiola continued the use of young players.

Enrique was not keen on using the academy players, but the appointment of Valverde gives Xavi hope.

“In general Barcelona have been sleeping,” Xavi told The Tactical Room. “They have to boost the ‘Cantera’ and their model of play.

“Young players have to learn this form of play so that when they arrive in the first team they already have the concepts properly learned.

“The ‘Cantera’ coaches have to make players, they have to teach them. You have to form them from the youngest ages. If you win, great, but that’s not the objective.”
