Xavi on Cristiano attack: "I didn't lack respect. And him?"
@LaLiga

Future Barcelona coach:

"Everyone asks me about it and people do see me as a future Barça manager and I’m grateful for that, but it’s still early. I’m still learning and I’m enjoying this other stage of my career. You have to be ready, to have a certain amount of experience, and I’m not there yet.”

Ter Stegen:

“Barcelona take a lot of risks in their game. Sometimes the keeper’s work isn’t rated enough and we don’t defend his quality. When he makes a mistake it is much more scrutinized, it gets blown out of all proportion. You have to say to him that he should be courageous, that he should take risks, that this is how Barça play football.”

Cristiano Ronaldo “not on same level” as Messi:

I saw that Cristiano didn’t take that very well but I still think the same. What he said about his Ballons d’Or is true as well. I try not to make mistakes but my opinion changes. I didn’t lack respect towards him. Did he towards me? What do you think?”

Ballon d’Or:

“If titles are what guides the voting then Cristiano is surely the favourite, but it’ll be close between him and Messi.”
