Ronald Koeman it is already history in the Barcelona and his substitute is chosen: Xavi Hernandez. The club’s board of directors has decided to dismiss the Dutch coach on Wednesday night and is already working to try to announce as soon as possible the arrival of the still coach of the Al Sadd.
Xavi He is number one on the list and the agreement with Barça does not seem complicated given the disposition of both parties. That is why at the top of the club the arrival of the coach is expected to close as soon as possible. However, it seems difficult to give him time to sit on the bench this Saturday against him Alaves, so everything points to what it will be Sergi Barjuan, current subsidiary technician, who assumes command on an interim basis.
As reported by OKDIARIO last September, Xavi, aware of the situation he was going through Koeman, I was waiting for a call from Barça. The club legend meets all the conditions to be the Dutchman’s replacement: he has been a player, he is one of the standards of the style, the stands adore him and he knows perfectly the surroundings and the Barça dressing room.
Before the Classic, he let himself be loved again, assuring that his ideal is to “train Barcelona” and that he has “never” hidden it. “It is my goal and my dream,” he added. His moment has come and now he does not want a repeat of what happened in January 2020 when Bartomeu met with him to offer him the bench occupied by Ernesto Valverde. Xavi He rejected it, but the situation has changed.
It should be remembered that in addition to his arrival at the Camp Nou, Xavi would have to negotiate his departure from Al Sadd. The normal thing would be that there were no complications, but those procedures could also delay in a certain way his landing on the culé bench.
Before signing Xavi Hernandez will require Laporta to have full powers in all matters relating to the first team. He wants to be the person who decides the signings and also the losses of the club. The one from Tarrasa knows that the squad of Barça it needs a deep reconstruction and for that it takes time. However, this time he knows that he cannot let the train pass despite the fact that the current situation of the team makes sitting on the bench now a real brown.
