Teenage Stars: The Future of World Football? Coach Xavi on Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsi

Xavi believes that Barca starlets Yamal and Cubarsi have the potential to define the era of world football.

In a news conference ahead of Barcelona’s upcoming match against Las Palmas in La Liga, coach Xavi Hernandez expressed his belief that teenage stars Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsi have the potential to define an era in world football. Both players have been making waves in the football world, with Yamal impressing against Brazil in a friendly for Spain and Cubarsi making his debut for La Roja against Colombia.

Yamal, at just 16 years old, is Spain’s youngest ever player and goalscorer, while Cubarsi, at 17 years old, is the youngest defender to play for his country. They have also been instrumental in leading a revived Barcelona side back to the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in four years, as well as maintaining their hopes of defending their La Liga title.

Xavi commended both players for their mentality and capacity, pointing out that they have the potential to make a significant impact at the club and even in the broader scope of world football. Despite their young age, Xavi noted that Yamal is very calm and mature, and that he sees the player as happy, enjoying his rise to stardom.
