Barcelona president Laporta: Spain a World Cup success thanks to Xavi

Barcelona president Joan Laporta says the club is proud to be dominating Spain's World Cup squad.

And Laporta says the credit must belong to Barca coach Xavi.

"It seems fantastic to me. It is a pride for FC Barcelona to see how our players and the team are playing, how they are making it pay for Luis Enrique," said Laporta.

"Luis Enrique, assuming all the pressure, which is a way to relieve pressure on the players, very young, he has been very brave, with very talented players who have the world falling in love with them, and it just so happens that most of them are from Barça.

"Seeing these players, the talent they have and how they play as a team, the truth is that it is pride.

"The great merit of this squad could be attributed to Xavi because he is making them play in the first team of Barça. It is a consequence of his great work."
