Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez has claimed the team is playing their best football since he took the job.
Xavi made these comments after they hammered Antwerp 5-0 in their Champions League opener on Tuesday.
João Félix scored twice, with Robert Lewandowski, Gavi and a Jelle Bataille own goal completing the scoring as Barça hit five for the second time in four days after registering the same scoreline against Real Betis on Saturday.
“I am really happy with the result, but above all with how we played,” said Xavi, who replaced Ronald Koeman as Barça coach in November 2021 and led the club to the LaLiga title last season.
“The early stages tonight were even because we didn’t press high well, but from the 20th minute, I thought we controlled the game. We dominated possession, recovered balls high and attacked well positionally.
“Obviously the level of the team goes up when [Ilkay] Gündogan plays, [João] Cancelo knows what we want and Félix has started well. I think these last two games are the best level we have shown with me in charge. It’s the path to follow.”
