Barcelona legend Xavi recently made a compliment to Joshua Kimmich. He believes the young man has everything he needs to play for Barcelona.
Kimmich is one of the talented young players owned by Bayern Munich. He was bought from Stuttgart in 2015 ago and since then he has been a mainstay player at Bayern Munich.
The 24-year-old was known as a versatile player. This season he has recorded 26 appearances for the player in the first team of The Bavaria.
Xavi himself believes the German national team player will be a big figure if he moves to Barcelona. “I once spoke with Pep Guardiola, my former coach at Barcelona, about him,” Xavi told Bild.
Xavi himself admitted that he had followed the development of Kimmich’s career and he admitted that he was very impressed with the performance of the young man.
“At that time Pep said: ‘I have a player who can play in any position.’ Then I asked ‘Who is that child?’ He said that a young man named ‘Kimmitsch’ who I honestly had never heard before. ”
“From that day on I began to follow the development of his career, because Pep really praised him. When I first saw him playing, he would be a great player and that is what he is now, a great player.”
Xavi, known as the Barcelona legend himself suggested that Kimmich try a new challenge by moving to Barcelona.
“I’m sure he will be the perfect player for FC Barcelona. During my career, I always opened my eyes to looking for players who might be suitable for Barcelona.”
“Like Phillip Lahm, Joshua Kimmich might not encounter significant obstacles at Barcelona, because he will be perfect for this team. But Bayern Munich are on the same level in Barcelona and he can achieve many things there.” he said.
