Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez has come out to say that the state of La Liga is nothing but a disgrace. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the recent game vs Getafe was an absolute embarrassment for the Spanish league, and he can now understand why most football fans all over the world don’t bother watching La Liga.
Xavi added that the handball given to Gavi was clearly invented, despite the league telling everyone only very clear handballs would be awarded.
His words, “If this match is La Liga’s product, it’s an absolute embarrassment. I understand why people don’t watch our football.”
“The handball given to Gavi was invented. They told us in a meeting that only very clear handballs would be given and Gavi’s wasn’t one, yet they gave it anyway. They told us they would use VAR less and I don’t know if VAR is there to help or not. I don’t see the point of that meeting. I was sent off for telling the referee they were allowing Getafe to get away with a lot of fouls and not doing the same for us.”
“We had a meeting with the referees and the first change they said they would make is that they would understand the coaches more, and the tension we feel on the pitch. But that is not what happened, and I don’t understand it.”
