Barcelona boss Xavi calls Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang "a brilliant gift fallen from the sky".

Barcelona boss Xavi has called Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang "a brilliant gift fallen from the sky", with the forward impressing since arriving at Camp Nou in January.

The Gabon international made the move to the Catalan club from Arsenal in the final stages of the winter transfer window and has been a regular since his arrival in Spain.

The 32-year-old has netted six goals in nine appearances for Barcelona in all competitions, and Xavi has lavished praise on the attacker for his contribution over the last couple of months.

"Well, Auba (Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang) has been a brilliant gift fallen from the sky for us because he's very positive. He reacted very well in the dressing room. He's adapted quickly to what the terms needs and the circumstances we are in. He finds space in behind, he can create chances, he scores goals," Xavi told reporters.

"He works hard for the team. He pushes the centre backs and the goalkeeper, so it's a privilege to manage him and we know he's got a lot of goals to give the team.

"I'm very pleased with him individually because he's an example to follow in training and everyone in the squad I can't complain about any player, and you can see that with the result."

Aubameyang penned a contract with Barcelona until June 2025 following his arrival from Arsenal.
