Barcelona manager, Xavi has come out to say that age is not a barrier when he tries to sign players. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, he signed Dani Alves at 38, and with players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Luka Modric, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi still performing at the peak of their powers, there is nothing to fear.
Xavi added that age is not a barrier for his signings, and it will always be all about the performance.
His words, “I signed Dani Alves at 38,”
“It isn’t about age, it’s about performance. Players look after themselves so much and every year they’re more professional.”
“[Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, [Luka Modric], Alves… They’ve all performed very well at important clubs. Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi too. Age isn’t a priority. If they improve us, that’s what’s important.”
