Xavi urges Barcelona to “run like animals” after narrow win over Almeria

Barcelona manager Xavi has expressed his frustration with his team’s performance in their 3-2 victory over Almeria. The former Barcelona player urged his team to “run like animals” and show more aggression in order to have a chance at winning titles.

Xavi’s dissatisfaction was evident as he criticized his team’s lack of aggression, stating that they are not the Barcelona of 2010 and need to fight for every ball. He made changes at halftime, which ultimately paid off with Sergi Roberto’s late winner.
