“Sergi Roberto is a fundamental player and this is how I have transmitted it to the club”
The Barça coach, Xavi Hernandez, is one of the main defenders of Sergi Roberto within the club and is firmly committed to its renewal, despite the fact that negotiations are currently stopped. At the press conference this Friday, prior to the duel against Betis at the Camp Nou, Terrassa showed it again. Asked about the “bad luck” that the Reus has been having since last year with injuries, and after meeting this week that will undergo surgery in Finland for his rectus femoris injury of the right leg with a time of absence that could reach four months, came out in his defense and valued his role within the team very positively: “Sergi is a person who is an example for the quarry, for the professionals, and he has been playing for a year suffering and has been unfair to him. And he has been criticized, whistled at the Camp Nou, being from the house and despite his involvement “.

In this sense, Xavi recalled about Sergi Roberto that “he has never been 100 percent and he has tried but it has not been possible and I recommended that he stop, because he has to clean“. The Egarense wanted to go further to claim what is contributed by one of the captains of the Barça squad:”We have to value this player, he is a fundamental player for the team and I have transmitted this to the club. And we hope that when he recovers, he will be happy and that he can perform at his best because the team needs him. “
