Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez has spoken of his pride after his team defeated Osasuna 2-1 on Tuesday night.

The win means the Catalans have opened a five-point gap between themselves and rivals Real Madrid.

“I am really proud of the team, of the family that we are inside the dressing room,” Xavi said.

“Everything was against us today: the refereeing decisions, the goal, going down to 10.

“We were intelligent. We took our moments well and were clinical with the chances we had. We were solid in the second half, worked hard and we will be leaders during the World Cup break. It’s a team win today. I am very proud.”
