‘The last two years have been complicated for me because of injuries. ‘When Xavi arrived, I had to have surgery. But he reassured me by telling me that he had complete confidence in me. He told me I could help the team.’
‘Xabi gives me confidence and peace of mind. As much as the confidence he has for me right now I am very happy to have him as my coach.’
Roberto has become a key asset to Xavi as the 31-year-old can play at attack, midfield and right-back following the departure of Hector Bellerin in January.

‘I made my debut at the Bernabeu in the Champions League when I was 18 and now I’m 31. Both the club and I are going down the same path. That must continue and this is us. Now I hope we can end the season with lots of success.’
The 31-year-old has made 23 appearances this season, scoring three goals and providing three assists in his 339 career appearances for the Azulgrana, ranking 27th for the club, ahead of both Javier Mascherano and Javier Mascherano. Luis Suarez
