The main candidate for the head coach of Barcelona has been named

The management of the Catalan “Barcelona” intends to appoint the head coach of the former midfielder of the club Xavi. This was reported on Twitter by El Chiringuito TV.

According to the source, Xavi is the main candidate for this post. In addition, some of the blue garnet players have already spoken to the 41-year-old Catalan. Mundo Deportivo confirms Xavi’s consent. It is noted that at the moment the issue of releasing the coach from obligations to “Al-Sadd”, which he heads, is being resolved, and the headquarters and salary for the specialist are being coordinated.

Earlier on October 28, the president of the club, Joan Laporta, announced the resignation of the Dutchman Ronald Koeman from his post as head coach of the team. This happened after the defeat of the Catalans in the 11th round of the Spanish Championship against Rayo Vallecano with a score of 0: 1. Koeman will receive compensation in the amount of 12 million euros.

Barcelona are ninth in the Spanish league standings this season with 15 points, six points behind leading Real Madrid. In the Champions League, the Catalans have won one victory in three meetings and are third in Group E.
