Football legend, Xavi Hernandes, has replied rumours linking him with a move to FC Barcelona, the club he spent the better part of his playing career years at, and won every trophy in club football. Following a humiliating 4-1 loss to PSG in the first-leg of Barcelona’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, there has been calls for the sack of head coach, Ronald Koeman, who is also a club legend.
Xavi who spent 17 years at the Catalonia club has expressed his desire to manage the club someday, and just like other fans of the club, Xavi is awaiting the outcome of the club’s Presidential election billed to hold on March 7.
Right now, I’m at Al Sadd and I’m doing well here. I’m at a big club in Asia, in Qatar. It’s the best team in Qatar. We’ll see what happens in the future. Everyone sees me as a Barcelona coach, and I really respect Barcelona and Koeman, the current head coach. I don’t want to hide the truth – of course I would like to be Barcelona’s head coach. I’ve said it many times. But I will always respect the presiding coach and the club. I wish them the best of course. I’ve been a Barcelona fan as long as I can remember. There’s an upcoming presidential election, so let’s see which candidate wins in roughly a month’s time
