Xavi Hernandez Crus has managed to alter the state and phase of FC Barcelona and restore their identity.
FC Barcelona have managed to record some fascinating results against the big guns in La Liga recently; They embarrassed Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabau with 4-0 win on Sunday night.
They did not only win by a good margin but dominated the game with their sublime passing and pressing. This has made football fans across the globe given coach Xavi Hernandenz the credit for changing the phase of the team after just four mouths.

Xavi has managed to restore the club to its lost glory as the team now exhibits the tiki-taka football which is their identity. They now score at will, create so many goal scoring opportunities and defend better unlike before. The Blaugrana el Vent have also managed to improve in defense.
Xavi has played 27 games in all, wining 15, drawing 7 and losing 4. They beat Atletico Madrid 4-2, Valencia 4-1, Bilbao 4-0 and Real Madrid 4-0 all in recent weeks.
Barcelona have also knocked out Napoli and Galatasary respectively in the UEFA Europa League. They dropped into this competition after their elimination from the UEFA Champions League.
