Barcelona defender Ronald Araujo says Xavi Hernandez was the key to Barcelona’s title run. He took over in the middle of last season, and in just over a year, he won the title with his hometown team.
Barcelona clinched the La Liga title with a win over Espanyol on Nov. 15 (KST). There were four games left in the season. With the trophy in hand, Barcelona has won the league title for the first time in four years since the 2018-2019 season.
For defender Araujo, the main reason for the title is the manager. He told Radio Catalunya: “It was incredible. I think we had a very good season, winning some very troublesome and important games,” he said, reflecting on the season.
“The main man for this title is Xavi. Many players, including myself, have improved a lot since his arrival. In recent years, Barcelona lost its identity and the players moved away from it. He’s changed all that, and now we’re a recognized team again,” he said, giving credit to the coach for the title.메이저사이트
This season, Araujo played just 22 league games due to injury. “He will be a key player for Barcelona for many years to come, and if Xavi continues to develop him, he will be recognized as one of the best defenders in the world,” according to Football España.
