Luis Enrique, the manager of the Spanish national team and a former Barcelona coach, spoke to the media earlier today. During their conversation, he expressed his opinion on Xavi taking over as Barcelona's manager.

Over the years, Enrique and Xavi have developed a special friendship. During Xavi's breakthrough years at Camp Nou, the two were colleagues at the Catalan club. When Xavi was starting to establish himself as a starter, the former left the club in 2004.

They were reunited subsequently when Enrique took over the club's managing job during the latter's final years as a player. Xavi left Barcelona in 2015, while Spain's current manager was the club's head coach.

According to RTVE, Xavi was praised by the former Barcelona manager: “Xavi has lived through bad times and always recovered. I know that he’s fully prepared. His team will be hard to beat.”
