Spaniard Xavi Hernandez, the former Barcelona captain and current coach of the Qatari Al-Sadd team, expressed his belief that the Liverpool striker Sadio Mane will not be the best match to play with “Blaugrana”.
Xavi said: “Mane and Obamyang can kill you both in an open space. But Barcelona needs players who know how to move in small spaces.”
He added: “I am thinking of a player who is adapting to Barcelona and it is not easy to find him. Etoo was as perfect as Luis Suarez now.”
And reports in recent months that Mani is among Barcelonas interests.
Sadio Mane, 28, joined Senegal’s 2016 Liverpool squad from Southampton and participated in 161 games with the Reds, scored 77 goals and 34 assists.
