Real Mallorca boss Javier Aguirre has heaped massive praise on the Barcelona team ahead of Saturday’s meeting.

Mallorca host Barcelona on Saturday, and despite the massive injuries to the Barcelona squad, Aguirre has said that Xavi has enough in his Arsenal.

According to Aguirre, the Barcelona bench is the starting eleven most teams would want to have.

“Barcelona have players on the bench that many teams would like to have for the starting eleven,” Mallorca’s head coach Javier Aguirre said ahead of Saturday’s clash.

RCD Mallorca manager Javier Aguirre has also hailed Barcelona star Robert Lewandowski as a ‘killer’ ahead of Saturday’s game.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Aguirre said: “Oh my God. I’ve seen him on TV. It’s a good signing for the league. It gives the league attention all over the world.

“He’s a killer in the penalty area, you can’t give him one free inch.”
