Jordi Alba thinks that Xavi’s arrival will give the team motivation.



Ronald Koeman

recently, and

Jordi Alba

thinks that Xavi’s return to his former club has given


extra motivation to turn things around and guide them out of their bad situation.

"It is an extra motivation to have him as a coach, at least for me,"

Alba told reporters

. "I will answer for him. We will do what we can to make him proud. That is the mission.

"[His] activities before training are very fun. They make us bond. The training sessions are being very fun and very demanding. We are happy.

"There have been changes, but I do not want to detract from those who have been before.

"In the end, the easiest thing is to fire the coach. When things are not going well, the players are also to blame. A change of coach is not pleasant, but we are fine with Xavi.

"He has emphasized talking with everyone, especially with those who did not play. That is positive for the whole team to get back to get hooked and let us believe in ourselves again.

"He's upbeat. He's a very positive guy. I think he encourages us more than the other way around."  

Xavi will have a hard job fixing the situation at Camp Nou after Koeman’s poor performance as their boss, and especially with their current financial situation the 41-year-old, however, has started his job with a victory in the domestic competition to give the fans hope about the La Liga giants’ future under the club’s former legend.
