Xavi later praised the 17-year old Gavi for his spectacular performance and called him the 'future' of the club. "You can only take your hat off for that performance from Gavi," he said. "It's spectacular how he plays. Along with Nico, Abde [Ezzalzouli], [Ronald] Araujo, [Alejandro] Balde, they're the future of the club. I played here when I was 18 and I was scared. These guys are bursting with personality. I'm delighted with this generation, Gavi is especially exciting," said Xavi.
