Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez has revealed his pleasure about the size of his squad heading into the new season.

Barcelona have signed well this summer, with the likes of Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski and Jules Kounde joining this summer.

For Xavi, it’s better to have a large squad than the limited squad he had last season.

Xavi recently said: “I want to have two starting players for every position. That is a good problem to have. Last year, we had a small squad.

“We’re happy to have a more complete squad now.”

At the time when Barca had only signed Kessie and Christensen, Xavi admitted he wanted more signings.

He said: “I don’t know how many more signings, the more the better.”

Following the club’s summer transfer activity, many are now tipping to win the La Liga this season.
