Xavi Hernandez is alert to what is happening on Barcelona’s bench at this moment. With the present and the future uncertain, his time may come soon.
The team have virtually lost La Liga and there is a lack of feeling between the players and the coach. They aren’t in a great position to take on the Champions League either.
Setien’s future is on the line and it’s not even impossible that he is axed before the season is out.
Xavi spoke to Jordi Evole about his plans.
“The biggest hope I have in the world is being Barca coach and to succeed again. Not me, but these players, and Barca. And as a consequence, our staff are preparing a lot to be ready.”
His dream has not changed.
However, Xavi also would like to start from zero, rather than coming in to save another person’s project. Ideally after the elections next summer.
The only doubt about Xavi is when he will take over. He would rather it was later but the club could convince him sooner.
