    Xavi, just for good with Al-Sadd

    Xavi Hernández will be the coach of the FC Barcelona in the coming days. Except for a radical turn of events, the Egarense has decided to say yes and do his part to return to what was his home for so long, this time as a coach. But the culé is very clear that he wants to do things well also with another club that has meant a lot to him both in the final stretch of his career as a footballer and in the first bars in front of a bench. Your departure with Al Sadd it will not be immediate.

    In the next few hours the conditions for disembarkation in the Barça. Your relationship with Joan Laporta and all your equipment is optimal. It is true that during this first stretch of the Barcelona’s mandate, Xavi has given a couple of noes to the possibility of sitting on the culé bench, but this time he does believe that it is time and he feels capable of reversing both the sporting situation of the team and that of promoting and improving each of the footballers that he currently has on the squad.

    Once he negotiates and agrees on the conditions for his return to the Camp Nou, Xavi will undertake the second step, which is to put an end to his current stage at the helm of the Al Sadd. There he has established great relations with Qatar and the entire Qatari culture, so much so that he is currently an ambassador of the next Qatar World Cup 2022. It is for this and for the last six years that he has lived there sportingly that he wants his departure to be as correct as possible with his club.

    Your relationship with Mohammed bin Hamad Royal, owner of Al Sadd, it’s very good. It is with him that you want to start conversations once you agree everything with Laporta. It should be remembered that since his last renewal with the Qatari club, just before this past summer and after an attempt to sign him the Barça, the technician does not have any type of release clause and his contract includes a termination clause in the event of premature departure. Nevertheless, Xavi Yes, he has the word of the Hamad Royal, who promised facilities if he is the Barça the one who comes for him.

    Once the first two procedures have been passed, agree to return to Barça and agree to leave Al Sadd, Xavi wants to say goodbye to what has been his hobby over the years. This next Saturday they play at home against the Al Member, in which it will be the last game of the Catalan in front of the Qatari team with his fans. It will be a special and emotional moment for him, who has been marked by this professional stage. After this meeting, on November 3 they visit the fiefdom of the Al Duhail, current second classified in the championship and a great rival for the title at the moment. If they manage to add the three points Xavi could leave the fight for the domestic trophy on track, revalidating it, before leaving Qatar.

    Following this roadmap, Xavi would not arrive in Barcelona until next week. It would be then when he signed his contract, his official presentation would be given and he would get to work with the team. With the game against him Celtic from Vigo on Saturday 6, the Catalan could take the reins of the squad once this match with the entire national team break ahead of him to adapt again to his home and meet some of the players with whom he has not yet entered into conversation. Thus, his debut could take place on a big day: the derby against him Spanish November 20th.

    Thus, with the dismissal of Ronald Koeman already announced and closed, the reins of the team would be taken by Albert Capellas until Xavi land. He is the coordinator of grassroots football and the one chosen by Joan Laporta and his team to occupy the position of interim coach while the Egarense arrives, and not Sergi Barjuán, as it was considered but it ended up being discarded so as not to destabilize the subsidiary. His experience at the highest level is brief but the confidence in him is very high. You should pass the paperwork before the Alaves, Celtic from Vigo and Dinamo from Kiev, when Xavi take over.
