Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has named five players who are the future of the club.

The former Spain midfielder picked out Gavi, Nico, Abde Ezzalzouli, Ronald Araujo and Alejandro Balde, following their 3-2 win over Elche on Saturday.

The victory moved Barca up to seventh place on the LaLiga table.

Players still technically registered with the B team scored all three goals against Elche.

Ferran Jutgla, 22, opened the scoring at the Nou Camp with Gavi, 17, scoring the second goal and then setting up the winner for Nico, 19.

“You can only take your hat off for that performance from Gavi. It’s spectacular how he plays.

“Along with Nico, Abde [Ezzalzouli], [Ronald] Araujo, [Alejandro] Balde, they’re the future of the club.

“I played here when I was 18 and I was scared. These guys are bursting with personality. I’m delighted with this generation, Gavi is especially exciting,” Xavi said.
