Xavi Hernández: 'It's not Xavi's league, it's Barça's league title'

The Barça coach and players reveal their emotions after clinching league title at city rivals Espanyol

After 34 games of the season Barça are league champions for 2022/23, the 27th in the Club's history and the first with coach Xavi Hernández. The Barça boss was more delighted than anyone with his side's achievement: "I have the feeling that it is a job well done. We started in July and we have put in an extraordinary league campaign. It's really important for the stability of the project and it confirms that we are going about things the right way." 

On the win against Espanyol, Xavi admitted it was "the moment to show that we could be brilliant." He continued: "It's not Xavi's league, it's Barça's league title, a Barça that is growing and developing. I am delighted for the players, for the staff and for the board...I feel really proud to coach these players." 


Reactions from the players: 

Sergio Busquets

“This should be the basis for a winning team; we have come from three season winning hardly anything." 

"I wanted to leave with trophies. We won the Super Cup but winning an important title, like the league, it's an objective that we had. I have really enjoyed it the last few days." 

Jordi Alba

"We are really happy for those who have been in the Club for a long time and those who have not won the league before." 

Estamos muy contentos por los que llevamos muchos años en el club, pero también por los que aún no habían ganado ninguna Liga."

Alejandro Balde

"It's been a special day: my first goal with the first team and my first league title." 


"Winning the league is a reward for consistency and I am really happy as it's an important title for the Club." 

Ronald Araujo

"It's important to learn how to win. It's been a while but this season we have won two trophies; that shows the team we have and I hope there are more to come." 


"I am really happy. I, and the team, have worked really hard and now we have the reward. It's the first of many and that makes it special."
