Xavi makes strong claim about Barcelona stars Pedri and Gavi
Xavi makes bold claim about Barcelona stars Pedri and Gavi.
Xavi has described Barcelona youngsters Pedri and Gavi as ‘even better’ than himself and fellow legend Andres Iniesta were at the same age.
Pedri and Gavi have set out to follow in those illustrious footsteps and have made a major impression so far, not least on Barca boss Xavi himself.
“When Iniesta and I were 20 years old, we weren’t as good as Pedri and Gavi are now,” Xavi told BarcaTV. “They are better than us,”
Another man that Xavi is hoping to see more from is the perpetually frustrating Ousmane Dembele.

Xavi, though, is determined to fine-tune the richly talented former Borussia Dortmund man, and he is working with him to improve one key part of his game.
