Barcelona sporting director Deco recently sat down with Esport3 for an exclusive interview, where he talked about various topics plaguing the club right now.

Deco seemed particularly keen on speaking about Barcelona’s form and the impact of Xavi Hernandez’s sudden decision to quit the club at the end of the season.

The Barcelona sporting director went on to highlight the achievements at Barcelona this season, adding, “The team has clearly shown signs of playing spectacular games, and sometimes we have not been able to.”

Deco also highlighted Barcelona’s achievements this season, including qualification to the Champions League knockout rounds. He also praised Xavi in the process.
