Barcelona coach Xavi refuses to deny meeting with Haaland in Munich

Barcelona coach Xavi has refused to deny meeting with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland in Munich last week.

Xavi was reportedly accompanied by Jordi Cruyff as he met with Haaland in Munich last Tuesday, and he was asked about the prospect of the club signing the 21-year-old in his pre-match press conference.

“I can’t disclose details, but I can only say that we are working for the present the future of the club,” Xavi said.

“I can’t say any more, when I can we will be the first to say it.

“For example, yesterday we announced Pablo Torre’s arrival.

“But, in this situation [regarding Haaland], I have nothing to say and nothing to announce, only that we are working for the good of the club, for the future and the present.”

Xavi went on to state that he does not feel the weight of the responsibility of playing an active role in Barcelona’s player recruitment.

“We are a team, with the president in charge, Mateu [Alemany], Jordi [Cruyff],” he said.

“They trust me a lot, I can’t say anything else.

“I don’t decide things alone, no one decides unilaterally.

“It is a group and I am all about the team, about asking questions, everyone having an opinion and then deciding.

“My role is decisive, but it is not me alone.

“It is about presenting the project to a player, the style of play and not tricking him, the city as well.

“The most important thing is that I have not seen a single player who has said ‘no’ to Barcelona.

“Of course there are different circumstances, but it makes all the players feel excited at the idea of joining.”
