Xavi later said, “It was not a nice situation for anyone. Health and people’s lives always come before anything else. Luckily they were able to revive the person and they are healthy and safe. We felt, both teams, that it was right to restart the game. We hope the supporter recovers quickly. If it had gone another way, we would have suspended the match.
“T. was a moment when they told us t. was nothing they could do, we were hearing a lot of things. In the end, it’s a humanity issue. We are talking about human life and it has to come before football.
“Among everyone, we tried to help and we hope they are OK.”
