Congrats mate! I'm sure this along with the goals you scored will raise your confidence and make you play even better. By the way Pep, is Crosas a more creative Xavi type player, more defensive like Pep G. or and attacking mid like Iniesta?

pep said...

As far as I can judge: playing style somewhere between Xavi and Iniesta and looks a bit like Guardiola, so a mixture of the three players you mention... ;)

Thanks pep :) I haven't had the chance to watch the Celtic games. Any chance he might be the heir to Xavi or would we need someone like Cesc?

We can talk about this in a year, we might have a better view on it then... He's certainly a prize winner: French cup, French league, Scottish league cup in less than one year. And still competing for the Scottish league.
