LIGA - Xavi to replace Koeman at Barcelona exclaims former teammate
Andres Iniesta claims that Xavi, a former Barcelona midfielder, is already planning to take over the Catalan giants.
Barcelona is a club in disarray. Following the catastrophic summer that transpired, Ronald Koeman has been unable to right the ship.
SPORT quotes Iniesta as saying:
“If you ask me if I imagine Xavi on the Barca bench.”
“Above all because he’s been preparing and training to coach Barca. He has the confidence to take on this challenge.”
Xavi's excellent work with Al Sadd has been in preparation for his future appointment as manager of the Nou Camp.
Only he can tell you whether he feels ready to take over thus early in his managing career and with the season already begun.
Pressure is mounting on Koeman, who will be mindful of Joan Laporta's threat to end his tenure at any time.
