Xavi reacts to Barcelona injury list

“We haven’t found an explanation, it’s multifactorial and each player is different. It’s happened. We’ll try not to let it happen to us. More caution, prevention… we’ll talk to the national teams.

“We don’t know if they’re the trips, the load of games, the methodology… no blame is being sought. It’s a disgrace, but there is a small plague of injuries. Time to show that we have a great squad.”
