Xavi Ready to Take Barcelona Coaching Job

Ex-Barcelona star Xavi has finally indicated his interest in coaching the club. The former Barcelona player said he wants to “go back home” to be Barcelona manager. He is saying this because his present club was saying Barcelona did not do well to publically coming for their head coach the way the Spanish side did.

The Qatari club has previously said their boss would not be allowed to leave at “this sensitive time of the season”.Barca officials are in Doha for talks, and 41-year-old Xavi is the favourite to replace the sacked Ronald Koeman.

Speaking about him going back to Barca, he said: “I have been talking to Barca for days. It’s all set. The clubs know my position, and I hope it gets resolved soon.” “The clubs are talking. I can’t say much, but I’m a positive person. It’s about common sense. They need to reach an agreement. That’s the issue.” “I wish I go back home. Going back to Barcelona would be spectacular and exciting.”

Spain legend Xavi played a total of 779 games and won 25 major honours for Barca between 1998 and 2015 before spending the last four years of his career with Al Sadd.

Barca president Joan Laporta has previously said: “I have always said one day [Xavi] will be Barca’s head coach, but I don’t know when. “We have great references about Xavi at Al Sadd. All our reports about Xavi are positive. We can talk a lot about Xavi, but I cannot give you more details. He is in all the papers, but we also have other options.”
