EL, Barça: Xavi justifies the choice to dismiss Dani Alves


His return to the club with which he enjoyed his greatest success had delighted European football. Indeed, Dani Alves, 38, returned to FC Barcelona five years after his departure. The most successful player in the history of football has come to bring experience to a very young group. However, his experience won’t serve Barca in the Europa League, as the player hasn’t made the roster for this competition. The club having recruited 4 players and being able to register only three new ones had to make a choice.

In a press conference, Xavi returned to this complicated choice to dismiss his former teammate from the group in the European Cup, knowing that the other three players are attackers: “Alves will be in the dressing room and he will help. I said I was unfair, I was unfair. I must have been unfair to one of the new players. I decided more by position than by performance. He will be missed, but it was a decision that was made. He was given to us like that, it’s a shame he’s not here.”
