Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez heaped praise on young talent Alejandro Balde after their hard-fought 1-0 win over Athletic Club on Sunday night. The 19-year-old was a standout performer for the Blaugrana, impressing with his energy and defensive prowess on the left flank.
In his post-match comments, Hernandez described Balde as having “immense potential” and touted him as a player capable of building a long and successful career with Barcelona.
The young full-back’s maturity and high level of play did not go unnoticed by the manager, who labeled him as the biggest surprise and revelation of the season thus far.
