Xavi explains what Riqui Puig should do to save his Barca career

Barcelona preparing to sell Riqui Puig in January.

The youngster fell out of favour during Koeman’s reign at Barcelona and was linked with a move away this summer.

But since Xavi’s appointment earlier this month, Puig got a fresh chance under the new manager.

Although he has not started a single game, Puig has played 135 minutes of football this season.

But according to reports, Puig has not done enough to impress Xavi and could be on his way out of Camp Nou in January.

His contract with Barcelona is up until 2023 and it’s unlikely he could see regular football at Camp Nou.

Xavi said on Riqui Puig: “He is one of the squad and we count on him. Everyone will have an opportunity, we have various competitions.

“He has an enormous talent to attack centrally, to arrive in the area and he is capable to give the final pass that we need.

“He has an innate talent and has to be as important to the team as Gavi and Nico.

“He has to dare, he has to arrive in the area, but from there.”
