Best In The World – Xavi hails top form Barca player with impressive performance so far

Xavi has reserved massive praise for Barcelona midfielder Ilkay Gundogan who was in top form, as Barcelona defeated Napoli 3-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

“Gundogan is one of the best midfielders in the world,” Xavi said after the Napoli game.

It isn’t just Xavi who has been appreciative of Gundogan, but teammate Robert Lewandowski as well.

For Lewandowski, Gundogan can play perfect football even in the dark.

“Gundogan is a player you can play with in the dark,” Robert Lewandowski told the media.

“He’s always perfectly positioned. He shows you that standing smart is better than running stupid.”

Gundogan has picked up more goals and assists than any other Barca midfielder this season.

Also, the German midfielder has been always present and rarely ever gets injured.

The 33-year-old has played 41 games this season, scoring five goals and producing 10 assists.
