Santi Cazorla commented on the Barcelona coaching search this week. Specifically, he was asked what Xavi Hernández could bring to Barca at this stage of their story.
One of the main questions around Xavi is his being prepared or not. Cazola, who plays for Xavi at Al-Sadd currently, assured Barca supporters he was ready for the job.
“Of course, Xavi is prepared to coach Barca,” he said. “Some people know the club well and know what he wants.
“He has a clear idea of football. He wants the ball and to be the protagonists. He is going to do it in any team in the world that he trains.
“It’s what Barca need, to return to their style.
“Xavi likes a lot of possession. He alternates between 4-3-3 and 3-4-3. Xavi always wants more and more possession.”
Xavi is still the favorite to replace Ronald Koeman at Barcelona. The latest reports suggest he could sign a deal until 2024 and take charge for Barca’s game against Celta Vigo on November 6.
