Xavi undergoes medical tests in Barcelona and will rejoin the team in preseason training today with the rest of the international players eliminated in World Cup group stage.
Because Barça is Eric Abidal who is ready to leave a club that pays him very well just because they treated his friend badly. Because Barça is Tito Vilanova who didn’t give up until his last breathe and was so in love with Barça that he leaves his sickbed and came to watch Barça. Because Barça is Xavi who unconditionally loves this club. Because Barça is Puyol who is always ready to fight for us with all his heart and came back to defend our goal even whe he was injured. Barça is Messi who is determined, loyal and self sacrificing. Barça is Pep because you know he always comes back even if we hurt him more than before.
Yes, players come and go but their marks don’t fade from this club. Every player who kisses this crest adds something more. And this is exactly what Barça is. A whole made of little pieces. And Barça is beautiful. Barça is more than a club and even those idiots called our board can’t change that. Because one day they will leave and Barça will still be there.
And unlike other people I don’t think supporting a team for a single player is a bad thing. You are free to do whatever you want. I cant judge you. But it’s so hard for me to understand. Okay you started to support this club because Messi or Iniesta or Xavi is there. But after a while.. how can you not fall in love with this beautiful club?
I love Barça as a mad man loves his lover. I know it’s probably not healthy and I am just another crazy person but it has my whole heart. And players are the beauty of it. My lover can get older and lose her beautiful brown hair or her baby-like skin. But that won’t change my love for her. She still will be the most beautiful thing in the world for me. It will only change the way other people look at her. And I don’t give a fuck about their opinions.
