Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been labelled as ‘a gift from the sky’.
The Gabon striker has already netted six goals in nine games across all competitions.
The 32-year old striker made a move to the Catalan giants in this January window from Arsenal and has hit the ground running at Camp Nou.
He has penned a three-year contract with Barcelona upon his arrival.
Xavi lavishes praise on the Gabon forward who has made an instant impact in his team.
“Well, Auba (Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang) has been a brilliant gift fallen from the sky for us because he’s very positive. He reacted very well in the dressing room. He’s adapted quickly to what the terms needs and the circumstances we are in. He finds space in behind, he can create chances, he scores goals,” Xavi told reporters.
“He works hard for the team. He pushes the centre backs and the goalkeeper, so it’s a privilege to manage him and we know he’s got a lot of goals to give the team.
“I’m very pleased with him individually because he’s an example to follow in training and everyone in the squad I can’t complain about any player, and you can see that with the result.”
