'Aubameyang is a present that has fallen from the sky' - Xavi dominates Barcelona striker after goal in 4-0 win vs Osasuna

Xavi lashed out at Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after his goal in Barcelona’s 4-0 win against Osasuna, describing the striker as “a gift that fell from the sky”.

Barca secured their fourth consecutive win in La Liga with a stunning performance against Osasuna at the Camp Nou on Sunday.

A brace from Ferran Torres and goals from Aubameyang and Ricky Puig set the hosts three points apart, and Xavi picked the Gabon international to special praise after the final whistle.

What has been said?

Aubameyang now has six goals to his name since his free transfer to Camp Nou on 2 February, including nine appearances for Barca.

Blagrana jumped at the chance to sign the 32-year-old after his contract expired at Arsenal, and Xavi was extremely impressed by his influence.

“Aubameyang is a gift that has fallen from the sky,” the Barca boss told a post-match press conference.

“This is not right [the goals], this is how he trains and his professionalism. He is an example [all the players] Huh.”

Xavi also praised Torres for silencing his critics, with a man who moved to Barca for €55 million (£46m/$60m) from Manchester City in the winter transfer window, now making his debut after a rough start. Looking for feet.

“I said the targets would come for Ferran,” Xavi said. “Wherever he has been, he has scored goals: with Valencia, City and the Spanish national team. It was just a matter of time. I am happy with how he is doing.”

Ousmane Dembele produced a strong performance on the right side of the All-Star front three, continuing his hot streak after an unsuccessful transfer in January.

“If you perform you make people happy,” Xavi added on the Frenchman, whose contract is due to expire in June. “The fans can see that he is giving everything for Barca and you can’t deceive the supporters. He was great today.”

Xavi on the occasion of Barca’s La Liga title

Barca are third in the Liga standings after their latest win, 12 points behind leaders Real Madrid after 27 matches.

After a Europa League Round of 16 second leg tie with Galatasaray, Xavi’s side are due to face Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu, but they do not think a win will put them back in the title picture.

“Winning La Liga is very difficult, even if we beat Madrid,” said the Spaniard. “Mainly because Madrid aren’t slipping. They’ve only lost twice. They have to drop points four times, so we can’t be too optimistic.

“But the sensations are really good. If we can put this intensity into every game we can compete against anyone.”
