Barcelona legend, Xavi has lifted the lid on his altercation with ex teammate, Neymar during Barcelona’s title celebrations. Xavi who was filmed during the open-top bus parade shoving Neymar in the face told Qatari newspaper that “He was trying to take my shoes off and pushing me when I was on the edge of the bus. I said that they should stop messing about and concentrate on the people that had come out to wave as the bus passed.
He continued “These parades are for the people after all. It’s okay to
have three or four beers but the parade is for the people and it’s the chance for us to thank them for our support. You can’t just do what you want to do.”
“This sort of thing is accepted in Brazil but here he will need to learn how to win and to lose. He is an extraordinary player who also works hard and is very humble but he maybe just needs to reflect a little. If you do that [trick] in the first minute when it’s 0-0 it is one thing but if you do it when he did it… he needs to think about that.”
