Xavi wants to participate in the election for Barca’s presidency
After almost becoming Barcelona manager ahead of Quique Setien. Xavi Hernandez has his own goals for a coaching career, but what about the Spaniard’s plans for the future? Despite his recent statements, he is not expected to be on the Barcelona bench soon. Although many other major clubs are lining up to offer him the opportunity. According to reporters, Xavi received more than one call during a pandemic from his former team-mates in the dressing room of Barcelona. Some want the current Al-Sadd coach to return to the Camp Nou immediately as soon as Setien’s spell is headed to an end. However, the relationship between Xavi and President Josep Maria Bartomeu is fractious. Especially after the attempt to hire a former midfielder failed in January.
Also, the presidency of Barcelona is due to take place in the summer of 2021. And Victor Font, who is most consonant with Xavi, is expected to stand for election. There is also a small question of loyalty to the Qatari club, which gave a chance to an unverified coach. Xavi wants to end the season at the head of Al-Sadd, even though the opportunity to win the title is gone. Al-Sadd is still participating in the group stage of the Asian Champions League. And Xavi wants to bring his club to what remains of that tournament. That’s why Xavi’s near future does not seem to be with his former club, but everyone knows that football can change very quickly. Four bad results can accelerate things, even the most unlikely of the Xavi and Bartomeu reunions.
