Raphinha doesn't know if he wants to continue at Barcelona.

Frenkie De Jong assures that no one will move him from the Catalan capital.

While it is impossible to decipher João Félix's future.

The three protagonists in Montjuïc, probably in one of Barça's best games of the season, the second most resounding victory in the League after the 5-0 win against Betis, on September 16.

“We always believe in what we do, that's how the players transmit it to me.

Today the team meets again at home.

We were missing a great match in Montjuïc and today we got it, a very complete, round match,” Xavi celebrated.

Getafe was a balm for the Barça coach, as well as for Raphinha, De Jong and João Félix.

A categorical Barça thrashes Getafe

“I really wanted to play this match because in Getafe they kicked me out in the first match, it was a special match and being able to win by so many goals is important for the team's confidence,” said Raphinha, who closed the match with a goal and an assist. .

“I'm coming back from injury, I'm getting minutes again, I'm happy to be back in the eleven scoring and assisting, but the important thing is the team's victory that keeps us alive in the competition,” added the Brazilian, who took advantage of Lamine Yamal's rest.

The 16-year-old youth player had started eight consecutive games.

“Nothing changes with Lamine,” Xavi intervened about Yamal, who did not take the field against Getafe.

“If the result had been closer, Yamal would have participated.

Both Lamine and Raphinha are going to be important,” added the Barça coach.

Raphinha, for his part, assured that he is not worried about the competition with Lamine.

“The other way around,” he justified;

“It is an honor to compete with him, he is going to be one of the greats, we are going to make each other better, this competition must always exist in a team like Barça.”

Xavi left as happy with the collective result – “Every game we are competing better, much better, a decisive stretch of the season is coming and this makes me have hope,” he stressed – as with the individual performance of several of his boys.

Among them, of course, with Raphinha.

When it came to praising João Félix, however, he was not so forceful.

Nothing new, Xavi was never convinced by Portuguese.

The timing

of attacking spaces was key, we prepared it and they understood it very well.

“Raphinha has done very well and João Félix has done very well on some occasions too,” said the Barça coach.

“I do my job, I try to give my best level.

I have done everything possible to return before the injury.

I try to enjoy, like the whole team, I think we have seen a happy and confident team,” said the former Atlético player, who scored his fifth goal of the season, the fourth in the last eight games.

But no Barça player needed more pampering than De Jong.

And the fans knew it.

“Frenkie De Jong, Frenkie De Jong,” sang the Animation Stand.

The Dutchman had attacked the press in the run-up to the duel against Naples.

“I don't understand how you're not ashamed…” De Jong complained in reference to information published, according to him false, about his salary.

This Saturday, number 21 let off steam with his second goal of the season.

“Frenkie can play in any style, he has technical and physical conditions like few others in the world, he is a guarantee for me, I am calm when he is there, he can give more or less touches, but he does not lose the ball.

“I am very happy with him,” said Xavi.

The coach is more convinced with each game that announcing his goodbye at the end of the season benefited his players: “The decision to say goodbye is very correct, the team has taken a step forward that we needed, it is the best decision for the club, I am very convinced

Thank you to the fans from the bottom of my heart that have always been by my side…” he concluded.

And if not, ask Raphinha, João Félix and De Jong.
