Sam, Rik and Toni discuss why Luis Enrique can make a team with so many Barcelona players look so much better than Barcelona. That's what he's done in 2021 with Spain, making good use of Eric Garcia, Jordi Alba, Sergio Busquets, Pedri and now Gavi. Busquets and Gavi were particularly good this past week in the UEFA Nations League. Joan Laporta's latest Lionel Messi comments are also analysed, along with some contract updates and an interview with Sudesh Baniya on Xavi Hernandez.

Sudesh is a journalism student who is currently studying in Qatar and has been able to keep a keen eye on Al Sadd and, more importantly, Xavi's coaching career. You can follow him on Twitter here and the full interview is available on Patreon. 

Running order:
-- Spain's perform in Nations League 
-- Luis Enrique vs. Ronald Koeman
-- Sergio Busquets delivering   
-- Should Messi play for free?  
-- Ansu, Pedri, Gavi contracts 
-- Dembele to stay or go? 
-- Xavi interview with Sudesh
