The former Barcelona player came back to the city he grew up in to see friends

Xavi Simons has been in Barcelona this Sunday. The La Masia-trained player visited several friends in Barcelona, where he spent a large part of his childhood. Among them was Alejandro Balde, with whom he has a great friendship. Both are from the 2003 generation and coincided for several years in Barça's youth teams. 

Both the left-back and the Dutchman are having a great season. A real explosion. After failing to make an impact at PSG, Simons decided to take a step back by signing for PSV Eindhoven. A return to his roots to find himself again. 

And the truth is that he has been one of the sensations of the season. Not only has he managed to be indisputable in the 'Orange' national team now coached by Ronald Koeman, but he has accumulated 16 goals and eight assists in 39 games played. 

Simons is playing mostly as a false winger, a more advanced position than he did at Barcelona during his formative years. He has gained in importance following the departure of Cody Gakpo to Liverpool.
