Laliga: Xavi Surpasses Zidane Record After Barcelona Latest Victory


Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez yesterday break a record held by former Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane when his boys cling to victory in the LaLiga 1-0 against Real Mallorca last night. Barcelona secured a win in an away match against Real Mallorca, ushering Xavi into another level of victory, thanks to Lewandoski who scored the goal of the match. Barcelona's victory against Mallorca was its 18th in away matches in the season since last November when Xavi joined the Catalan club.

So far under Xavi, Barcelona had won all its away matches, placing the Spanish Club in a vantage position as the longest unbeaten club in an away clash under Xavi. 

Zidane also had a similar record while managing Real Madrid. 

Reacting, during his post-match press conference, Xavi showed little concern for the record. 

As quoted by Mundo Deportivo, he said, “Records, if they are not accompanied by titles, are good for little. It means that we are on the right path, but also at home. 

“If they translate to titles, the records taste better, but at the moment they are anecdotal.”
