Speaking in his post-match press conference after Barcelona’s emphatic 4-0 win over Real Madrid on Sunday, Xavi praised his players after their performance at the Santiago Bernabéu.
“We didn’t expect to be so superior at their stadium. They’ve had a rest week and we arrived from Turkey [after playing Galatasaray] on Friday. We played an excellent game and I leave very feeling very satisfied.
“We have been far superior to Madrid, in the game and the result. I’m very happy for Barcelona for what it represents.
“I’m very happy for the players, they’ve shown they’re great footballers and it means a lot.”
