Barcelona's Xavi rates Cesc's Arsenal as 'uncompetitive'

Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has labelled Arsenal as 'uncompetitive' and feels they are wrong for keeping Cesc Fabregas at the club. The Spanish World Cup-winner knows his club will not obtain his national teammate this summer but feels he could make a move in the next transfer window when the Gunners' season is over.

"We've given up on the idea of him arriving now, but maybe he'll come in January when Arsenal are out of the Premier League title race. Their team are just not competitive," he said.

"Arsenal are wrong to have forced him to remain there, they can't just hold him against his will."
