Campo praises Xavi: He's raised Barcelona - they're playing with joy

Former Real Madrid defender Ivan Campo has praised Xavi for his work with Barcelona.

Victory over Atletico Madrid on Sunday saw Barca reach the Champions League places.

Campo told Radio Marca: "He has raised the team again, a team with joy.

"Because of the people who have come and the way of playing that he has brought so special to Barça, and those old players with a lot of experience who have regained that positive energy that Xavi gives off when it comes to making a team and the way of seeing football.

"And when victories like yesterday's come, important ones, with a 4-1 at half-time to recover ideas and feelings. And it's nice to see him celebrate in the locker room."
