Barcelona is the most crisis top club in Europe in recent years.
Bartomeu’s mediocre management brought the club to its knees with their idiotic decisions in the transfer market and in the selection of head coaches. Now Barça is in a terrible situation – Messi and Griezmann have left (and no worthy replacement was found for them), 12 million euros were spent on compensation for the dismissed Koeman, and the team’s prospects for the season are very sad.
The fans and the press see the savior of the club as Xavi Hernandez, one of the leaders of the legendary Pep Guardiola team. The midfielder left Catalonia in 2015 and went to Qatar to prepare for a new stage in his career: returning to Barcelona as head coach. Everyone was talking about Xavi’s incredible understanding of the game even during his playing career, so there was little doubt that one day he would jump on the coaching bridge of the blue garnet.
How Xavi left al-Sadd and when to expect a debut at Barcelona
Xavi signed a contract with Qatar’s Al-Sadd until 2023 without an early termination clause, only the prescribed amount of compensation of 1 million euros was indicated if Xavi decides to leave the team early. Nevertheless, the Spaniard still had to negotiate with the management – without his permission, it was impossible to leave before the expiration of the contract.
