UEL Pressure is on me – Xavi admits ahead of Man Utd vs Barcelona. Before to their matchup with Manchester United in the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 match, Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has indicated he would let his players know that he is under pressure.
Last week, the teams fought to a 2-2 tie at Camp Nou.
Xavi acknowledges that United are one of the continent’s top teams right now, but he wanted to relieve his teammates of the strain.
“This is the finest United we’ve seen in a while. They’re back, and they’re even vying for a Premier League spot. It’s the ideal situation to demonstrate Barca’s ability to compete with a strong European squad.
“I’ll advise the players to enjoy the moment since I’m under pressure. I would do anything to play at Old Trafford one again on a significant European night in a unique atmosphere, stated Xavi.
