Barcelona boss Xavi is delighted to have led the Blaugrana club to the LaLiga title.
Win at Espanyol on Sunday confirmed Barca as 2022/23 champions.
Xavi later said: “Magnificent feeling. A job well done: all this started last July, it was 10 months of work and sacrifice. The fans, the club, they deserve it. It gives us stability and the certainty that things are going well.
“We have sealed the championship victory with a fantastic match. We were brilliant. The team relaxed in the end and the opponents showed pride. We won La Liga in a derby, which is not an ordinary thing. It was a particular scenario and we discussed before the match.
“We’ve suffered a lot, there’s a lot of criticism here. The work being done isn’t valued enough. This is Barça and I know how it is. I’ve been there before as a player. Believing in the project gives us security.
“In some games we were brilliant in the game. I think we showed that we are a team. We want to win the remaining four games to finish the season well. The target has been achieved, which is great.”
On angering Espanyol fans with their celebrations, he added: “It is normal, but I understand that we’re not at home and we shouldn’t be disrespectful. I knew it was difficult to control, but I said to the players that the best thing was to go to the locker room immediately.”
