Barcelona Are Under Pressure Against Man United – Xavi

Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez has said he will tell his players that the pressure is on him ahead of the second leg of their Europa League last-16 clash with Manchester United.

Both sides played out a 2-2 draw at Camp Nou last week.

Xavi admits that United are one of the in-form teams on the continent, but was keen to take the pressure off his players.

“This is the best United in recent years. They are back; they are even competing for the Premier League. It’s the perfect setting to show that Barca can compete against a big European team.

“I will tell the players: ‘The pressure is on me, go out there and enjoy this stage.’ I would give anything to play again at Old Trafford on a big European night with a special atmosphere,” Xavi said.
