Barcelona were dumped out of the Europa League on Thursday by Eintracht Frankfurt in a 3-2 defeat at Camp Nou in the competition’s quarter-final, but Xavi has denied the exit is a “failure” for the club.

The Blaugrana had gone 15 matches unbeaten before the defeat, riding high until a 1-1 aggregate scoreline entering play became a 4-3 finish that was nowhere near as close as the scoreline suggests.

It was certainly a low-point of Xavi’s tenure and one that will bring Barcelona back to earth after a red-hot run.
