Xavi Hernandez insists that all players must fight for the starting XI. Especially Gerard Pique, the 35-year-old defender who has been guaranteed a place for the past 13 years.

Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez has revealed that all players must start from scratch and compete for a place in the starting line-up, including 35-year-old defender Gerard Pique, according to reports. Marca on Saturday.

Pique returned from Manchester United in the summer of 2008. Over the past 13 years. He has been the first choice in the Azul Grana defense provided he is fit. But with age and a lot of drama off the pitch, there are doubts about the professionalism of the players ufabet

Azulgrana have also signed Jules Kunde and Andreas Christensen this summer to compete for the title with Pique, Ronald Aarau. Ho and Eric Garcia are therefore no guarantees for Pique’s starting line-up like in the past, before Xavi insisted that all players would start from scratch to prove good enough to start. 

‘Like everyone else Everyone started from scratch. Everyone will compete for the title. The best players get to play more.’

‘The more solutions I have as a trainer, It’s even better. We’re putting together a great team. The club is trying hard to be competitive and we have to show that.’

‘My goal is to bring Barcelona back to the top of the world,’ Xavi said.
