LaLiga: He can play any position without complaining – Xavi names wildcard in Barcelona squad

Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has labelled Sergi Roberto as a wildcard in his team.

According to Xavi, Roberto can play in any position in the Barcelona squad without complaining.

The Spaniard said this during his latest press conference ahead of Barcelona’s LaLiga tie with Cadiz CF on Saturday.

Barcelona head to the game after beating Viktoria Plzen 5-1 in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.

Roberto started the game against Viktoria Plzen as the right-back and captain. However, he was substituted at half-time and replaced by Gerard Pique.

“He [Roberto] is performing very well, I am very happy, a very important wildcard for the team, he can play in any position, without complaining,” Xavi said (via Mundo Deportivo).

“He has a little discomfort… Maybe he doesn’t travel to Cádiz but for the Champions League.”
