Barça offers Xavi the post of Valverde until 2022

first_imgValverde is sentenced, the question is how much he will endure. At the moment, it seems that he will remain in charge of the team until the end of the season because Xavi Hernández, coach of Al Sadd does not seem to be at the moment for the work of taking the team immediately and two more seasons, although he is already the number one candidate Looking forward to next season.A good part of Barcelona’s staff met this Friday with Xavi Hernández to probe him about his intentions for the future. The summit, where the general director, carscar Grau, and the technical secretary, Eric Abidal, were held in Doha, the capital of Qatar, taking advantage of the fact that the team had traveled to Saudi Arabia to play the Spanish Super Cup. In fact, from the club they quickly leaked that the appointment was closed before the team fell eliminated against Atlético de Madrid, so it was wanted to separate this meeting to a possible emergency solution to find an alternative to Ernesto Valverde in order to This season It was the radio station RAC1 who advanced exclusively the summit between Barcelona and Xavi Hernández and that later could confirm AS. From the beginning we wanted to make it very clear that it was an informal meeting, also taking into account the friendship that unites them with Abidal and Xavi. In any case, the club was the first interested in giving an official patina to this summit, so no one is missing that one of the objectives was to probe the mythical Blaugrana player to know his intentions for the next season, especially because the Egarense maintains a great friendship with one of the future candidates for the presidency of the club, Víctor Font, and from the Catalan entity it was wanted to know if there was any impediment to enter into the alternatives for the next season.The meeting went beyond next season, because From the club, the option of having Xavi controlled in case Valverde does not finish the season has long been valued. Messi would be the main supporter of the arrival of his friend on the bench as coach.What seems clear is that Ernesto Valverde, no matter what happens from here until the end of the season, the course 2020-21 will not continue in the club. From the entity its cycle is considered totally exhausted, so they are looking for a powerful alternative that can return to excite the fans, especially thinking that it will be the last year of Josep Maria Bartomeu at the head of the Blaugrana ship. For now several names had sounded: Ronald Koeman, Robert Martínez and Thierry Henry. Well, today there is another one among the possible futures: Xavi Hernández.
