Very strange – Lamin Yamal breaks silence on Xavi’s sacking at Barcelona

Barcelona youngster, Lamin Yamal, has described Xavi’s sudden sacking as “very strange. ”

However, Yamal insisted he is very excited about the arrival of Xavi’s replacement, Hansi Flick.

The 16-year-old was handed his Barca debut by Xavi in April 2023.

But just over a year later, the former Spain midfielder was dismissed by the Spanish giants.

When asked about Xavi’s sacking, Yamal told Mundo Deportivo: “It was a very strange moment.

“At first he left, then he stayed… It was strange, because we saw the same thing that you saw too.

“[It was] very sad because for me he was the first coach in the elite that I’ve had, but these are things that happen in football.”

On Flick’s appointment, he added: “The last thing I saw was when he was at Bayern, and also in the German national team. They have a fairly offensive game, quite direct. I’m very excited.”
