Sevilla's Struggles and Xavi's Recurring Problems

On this week’s episode of the podcast, Jamie Kemp and Robbie Dunne welcome Ryan Benson to discuss Sevilla under Quique Sanchez Flores. They chat about Sevilla’s chances of being relegated, the need for a massive squad overhaul and Hannibal Mejbri’s strange start to life in Sevilla. 

Then Jamie and Robbie discuss all of the main problems that Xavi has faced as manager of Barcelona and the reasons why he is overwhelmed.

From the injury crisis and squad turnover to Robert Lewandowski’s awful big chance conversion rate. They also discuss Barcelona’s inability to defend in transition with some eye-watering stats about how easily they concede against direct attacking football. Finally, the lads discuss potential replacements for Xavi and why someone like Garcia Pimienta of Las Palmas might fit the role perfectly.
