Xavi: ‘I don’t like the Europa League anthem, it’s disappointing. It makes us angry’

Playing in the Europa League? I don’t like to listen to any anthem other than the Champions League,” Xavi said in his interview with Barca media.

Speaking further Xavi said: “Maybe it’s necessary to grow. But I don’t like it, it makes us angry. It’s disappointing. It makes us angry to be in a competition we don’t want to play.

“I’ll be looking forward to the Europa League, let’s hope we reach the semi-finals or the final.

“If we win La Liga, it would be a good season for us,” Xavi adds.

Barcelona were bundled out of the Champions League after finishing third in their group. The consequence is dropping to the Europa League where they will face Manchester United in the playoff.

This is the second successive season Barca are dropping to the Europa League under Xavi.
