Barcelona coach Xavi has again praised Ferran Torres for his current form.

Torres is currently playing the best football of his career.

Ahead of their Champions League opener tomorrow against Royal Antwerp, Xavi said: "Ferran needed to make a good preseason, he had a lot of faith in himself. I'm not surprised by his performance because I see him work.

Xavi was also asked about new contract talks for Lamine Yamal and Alejandro Balde.
