Xavi: Cesc Fabregas Makes My Football Better

Barcelona midfielder Xavi claims that the arrival of Cesc Fabregas has made him an even better player this season. Xavi

Xavi was on the three-man shortlist for the FIFA Ballon d’Or award last year , but the 31-year-old thinks that he can improve after Fabregas joined the club from Arsenal for around £29 million this summer.

Fabregas has made Barcelona history by scoring in each of his first four La Liga games and Xavi is full of praise for his team-mate.

“I think Cesc makes my football better and feel that we complement each other very well,” Xavi was quoted as saying on the club’s official website. “If he goes up I stay back and cover for him or vice versa. I am very happy on the pitch and so is he. We have shown that many times this year.”

Asked about the 3-4-3 system that has been used in recent Liga matches, Xavi said “this system is quite good. Considering we are a team that maintains a lot of possession of the ball, it is a good idea to have an extra man in the middle.

”It does make it harder in defence, but I think it is better to be balanced towards having a stronger midfield. I think we’ve dominated all of the games so far this season, and have done so well “.
