Talking about Fermin Lopez, coach Xavi Hernandez affirmed that the midfielder is a valuable player for Barcelona, possesses an extraordinary mentality and always listens to advice from the coaching staff.
The Spanish strategist shared:
“In general, I’m very happy for him. Fermin is a valuable person for us. The basic thing is that he possesses an extraordinary mentality. Fermin is always listening, always thinking and I really like his mentality – when you tell Fermin something, he will learn and apply it.”
“I spoke to Fermin just before we scored. I told him that the basic thing is to move from the second line, when he drops deeper to gain control of the ball, to be able to attack their goal.”
“I told Fermin that the Shakhtar full-back is very preoccupied with keeping up with Lamine, and this will give Fermin space, opportunities that he has to take advantage of.”
