Former Barcelona midfielder and current manager of the team, Xavi Hernandez, has recently expressed his admiration for Manchester City, hailing them as the best team in the world right now. Xavi’s remarks come after witnessing Manchester City’s impressive run of form this season, where they have dominated the Premier League and reached the final of the Carabao Cup.
Xavi, who is considered one of the greatest midfielders of all time, praised Manchester City’s tactical flexibility and the quality of their players, particularly singling out Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden for their exceptional performances this season. He also noted the impact of Pep Guardiola’s coaching, stating that he has taken Manchester City to another level.
Furthermore, Xavi feels that Manchester City could win the treble this year, given their current form and the quality of their squad. The treble, which involves winning the Premier League, the FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League in the same season, has only been achieved by a handful of teams in football history, including Manchester United, Barcelona, and Bayern Munich.
