Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has said Sevilla are an example of how a club should be run.
Xavi’s men take on second-placed Sevilla at the Sanchez Pizjuan on Tuesday.
Victory will take the hosts to within three points of leaders Real Madrid.
“It’s another opportunity to take points from a direct rival, but it won’t be easy.
We tend to look abroad to clubs like Bayern Munich, but what Sevilla have done in recent years makes them an example for us.
[Julen] Lopetegui is one of the best coaches, Monchi, in the scouting department, is one of the best in his field,” Xavi said in a news conference on Monday.
