Former Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez is finally returning to Camp Nou and he has stepped down as coach of Qatar’s Al Sadd. The gossips that have been going on for days is going to appear real now.
Al Sadd tweeted on Friday that they had agreed to discharge Xavi as Barcelona agreed to reimburse the release clause. Then they both came to an agreement about Xavi and now it is officially announced that Xavi is returning to Camp Nou.
A few days ago, Barcelona’s president Joan Laporta said that he has been always said that Xavi will be the coach of Barcelona one day, but he does not know when. Finally, that time came. And for Barcelona, it is certainly a great deal because they are passing a bad time along with some financial crisis.
Xavi Hernandez is the best choice for Barcelona because he is much experienced and intelligent. He played a record 69 matches for the team before leaving the former club. He started his very first step towards a football career in Barcelona’s youth academy.
Camp Nou has won a total of 25 titles in his prosperous career, including 4 Champions Leagues and 8 La Liga titles. He also made 767 appearances in total and scored 85 goals while enrolling 184 assists. So, there is no doubt that Xavi is the best nomination in a replacement of Ronald Koeman.
Xavi won the 2010 World Cup and two Euro titles for Spain and then he left Barcelona in 2015 to join Al Sadd as a player. In this playing career, he was incredible. His performance and dedication to the game took him to another level.
Later in 2019, Xavi Hernandez took the charge of the team as a Coach. With his guidelines, the team has won one Qatar Stars League and Qatar Super League, and then they also won two Qatar Cups and the Amir of Qatar Cup. The league is unbeaten for a record of 36 matches.
Why Xavi Hernandez is returning to Camp Nou?
Xavi will be in the post of head coach of Barcelona, this discussion is going for a long time. This topic took on a new dimension after coach Ronald Koeman was fired on 26th October. He got fired from the post due to one poor performance one after another.
Al Sadd has said before that they will not release Xavi. However, the 41-year-old coach said after the team’s 3-3 draw against Al Duhail SC on Wednesday that he was looking forward to returning home and that it would be great to be the coach of Barcelona. Then the announcement has come.
Barcelona is currently in 9th position in La Liga with 4 wins from 11 matches and 18 points from draws. But now all are expecting that Xavi will properly guide the team to upgrade the team’s position in La Liga.
