"I don't like anything that raises tension" - Xavi critical of Barcelona spokesperson's post attacking Real Madrid's Vinicius Jr amid racism row
Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has commented on Barca deputy spokesperson Mikel Camps' shocking remark against Real Madrid winger Vincius Jr.
“It is not racism, he deserves a slap for being a clown. What do these unnecessary and meaningless bicycle kicks represent in the centre of the field?”
"He’s already deleted it, hasn’t he? That means something. I don’t like anything that generates tension, neither the referees pressuring nor this tweet. We must have a Clasico with a lot of fair play, respect and mutual admiration."
"We’ve had games against Real Madrid in the past with a lot of tension, and I won’t be the one to generate it this time.”
Xavi provides Joao Felix injury update ahead of Barcelona's clash against Real Madrid
"Joao Félix is not injured. It’s a blow. There will be no problem for him to be there for El Clásico."
“If we bring back one of the injured players for El Clásico, it will be very positive, but we will not force anyone. Everyone is doing their part to try to catch El Clásico.”
