FC Barcelona has officially sacked Ronald Koeman as manager. With a current ninth-place position in the league table, something has to change. The Catalan club has always had its eyes on Xavi as a replacement. Xavi has excelled as a manager in Qatar and is now ready for FC Barcelona. Fabrizio Romano speaks out about the signing of FC Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez.

“Xavi to Barcelona, confirmed and here we go! Official statement from Al-Sadd on the agreement completed with Barça. Xavi is back and he’s the new manager.”

Xavi has already demonstrated his worth of being a manager. With just over two years of experience, Xavi was able to bring Qatari club Al-Sadd seven trophies. Xavi has also made Al-Sadd the most dangerous team in Qatar. He set an extraordinary record of 34 unbeaten games. For this reason, it is safe to say that FC Barcelona has selected the right man for the job.

A new manager was crucial if Barcelona wanted to turn the season around. FC Barcelona is already dropping points in La Liga and battling for a spot in the knockouts of the Champions League. A position outside of the top-4 would be humiliating for the Spanish giants. Lionel Messi is out of the squad for the first time in 17 years. As a result, this soccer club will have to start playing as a team since they can’t rely on Lionel Messi anymore.

Xavi is ready for FC Barcelona

Xavi had an extraordinary career with FC Barcelona. From developing himself in the Barcelona academy and then lifting the Champions League four times, Xavi knows what it takes to win with this club. With profound guidance from Pep Guardiola, FC Barcelona became the most feared team in Europe during the 2008-2012 seasons. Because of this, Xavi has had one of the best mentors in the world.

FC Barcelona has started to use lots of their academy players recently. This will be an upside for Xavi because he also had the experience of going through the same system of play. For this reason, players like Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig, Gavi, and many more will be able to give FC Barcelona a bright future. With Xavi as manager, FC Barcelona might be able to save their season.
