Barcelona coach Xavi: Alonso had a great debut; I've lot of confidence in Torres

Barcelona coach Xavi was happy with Marcos Alonso’s debut in midweek.

The former Chelsea defender featured in the Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich.

Xavi said today: “He had a great game. He was good one on one stopping (Leroy) Sané. Continuity for everyone will be difficult. There will be many rotations. I have already warned the players.”

Xavi says he’s also happy with the current form of Ferran Torres.

He added: “I have a lot of confidence in him, people value him for his goals, but he brings a lot of things – pressure, intensity, work.”
