Xavi frustrated with Barcelona's injury crisis

Xavi’s squad has been hit by several injuries after the international break.

The Barcelona manager is frustrated with the number of injured players returned after the international break.

His side has to play 12 matches between now and the break for World Cup in mid-November.

Frenkie de Jong, Memphis Depay, Jules Kounde and Ronald Araujo all suffered injuries while on international duty

“It frustrates me but I have to think about the positive,” Xavi said as he faced the media.

“We haven’t found an explanation, it’s multifactorial and each player is different. It’s happened. We’ll try not to let it happen to us. More caution, prevention… we’ll talk to the national teams.

“We don’t know if they’re the trips, the load of games, the methodology… no blame is being sought. It’s a disgrace, but there is a small plague of injuries. Time to show that we have a great squad.”

The boss continued: “We have time to recover many, with the exception of Ronald, in two or three games. He has had to have an operation. It’s the one that gives me the most sorrow, for the player and for the team. But we have to accept it. It will be an opportunity for others.”
