The Royal Antwerp director weighs in

Marc Overmars, the sporting director of Royal Antwerp, has given his verdict on FC Barcelona’s mission.

“Barça is growing. It takes time to rebuild. You have to look at last season, when they won La Liga. Xavi was my colleague as a player. As a coach you have to give him three or four years of work,” the previous Barcelona participant mentioned in an interview.

“There must be a long-term commitment. I know that Barça has gone through difficult times financially, and it takes time, but last year they won La Liga. They have very good young players.”

Barcelona can be taking an enormous step of their rebuild effort as they tackle Royal Antwerp within the UEFA Champions League. The Catalans are obligated to progress previous the group stage after repeated failures in previous seasons.

Overmars performed for 4 years with Barcelona within the early 2000s, however he was severely restricted by accidents.
