Barcelona coach Xavi said that he is angry and that things must change in that football club, after the team was eliminated from the Champions League.

Barcelona lost to Bayern last night in Munich with 0: 3 in the last round of the group stage, they took the third place in the table, so they will play in the knockout phase of the Europa League in the spring.
Xavi, who achieved two victories, a draw and suffered two defeats in five games on the bench of the Spanish team, criticized the players and said that Barcelona is no longer at the level of Bayern.

They dominated. We always want to dominate, but now it was the opposite. We have to demand more. We are Barça. This must be a turning point, change the dynamics and many other things. This is the Champions League, but this is also our reality, “Xavi said after the game, Sky reported.

For the first time since the 2003/2004 season, Barcelona did not pass the group of the most elite European competition.

“This is a reality and I am very angry. We have to face it now, there is nothing else. A new era is starting today. We are starting from scratch. Our goal is the Champions League, not the Europa League. I saw how harsh the reality is.” said Xavi.

“I was hoping we would play better. Bayern is better, that’s the reality. But we will work hard and do our best to prevent this from happening again. I feel helpless. We have to start bringing Barça back to where it belongs, and that is not “Europa League. This is a hammer blow for me, as a coach. We will work hard to bring Barça back, but we have to change a lot,” added the former Barcelona player.

Until a short break in the Spanish league, Barcelona will play against Osasuna, Elche and Sevilla. Barcelona is seventh on the table with 16 points behind the leading Real Madrid.
