LaLiga: Barcelona manager, Xavi names most talented player in the world

Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez has claimed there is no player in the world as talented as Pedri.

The Spanish midfielder came off the bench as Barca defeated Valencia 4-1 in LaLiga on Sunday.

Pedri, who only returned from injury in January, looked to have scored the fourth goal from distance, but it was later awarded to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But Xavi was still full of praise for the teenager.

“There is no player in the world with as much talent as Pedri – and he is only 19!

“He is absolutely superlative. How he turns, his understanding of space and time and the fact he uses both feet. It’s amazing to have him in the team and we must take care of him.

“Look, he’s not a normal player. There are very few like him. Perhaps, at his age, he is already the best in the world in his position,” Xavi said.
