young star Barcelona Lamin Yamal shone in his team’s victory over Villarreal. Javi Hernandez did not hesitate to express his praise.
Last weekend, Barcelona won an exciting home duel with Villarreal in La Liga. Blaugrana won 4-3.
Yamal became a creator, providing an assist to Barcelona’s first goal created by Gavi. The 16-year-old then played his part in Barcelona’s winning goal scored by Robert Lewandowski.
Xavi praised the contribution of Lamine Yamal in the match. The Barcelona coach admitted that the club has high hopes for Yamal.
“Of course I’m surprised at what he’s doing at his age, he’s only 16,” Javi said, according to ESPN.
“Everyone was surprised and I was no exception. He almost always made the best decision, which is what matters in football.”
“We had high expectations, even when you see what you see (on the pitch). He didn’t start all of a sudden. He started because we felt he could make a difference.”
“As I said, he almost always makes the right decisions, this is important, choosing the best options. Today, two assists, he is smart, mature. He is extraordinary,” Javi Hernandez said of Lamin Yamal.
