Xavi Hernández will not continue on the Barça bench once this season ends. After the match against Villarreal, which ended with a 3-5 defeat for the Catalans, the coach of the Catalans has confirmed that he will leave once he finishes this season.
This is what he said before the media: “I want to announce that on June 30 I will not continue as Barça coach.”
“I had decided a few days ago, but I think it’s time.
The club needs a change of dynamic,” continue.
And he continues: “As a culé, when I think of the club, of the players… they are going to be calmer.
It’s common sense. “To think about the club, more than about me.”
“I want to thank the president for his trust.
The president is the ho***… but I think that my project as a coach has to end on June 30,” insists Xavi. “I feel the most responsible”
Because he sees himself as the “most responsible”: “That’s how I feel. Good work has been done, but… I think this
“it’s going to de-escalate the general situation.”
“I have thought about the club.
Somehow I’ve freed myself. I want the best for the club, and the best thing is that it doesn’t continue on June 30,” he says. “If the Champions League is won…”
Whatever happens, even if he wins the Champions League, is not going to change his mind:
“I hope it happens, But I’m not going to change my mind.”
Xavi also confirms that he has not yet spoken to his players: “I haven’t told them. I’ve seen them screwed.
“They don’t deserve what we’re going through.”
In that sense, he insists on his decision even after winning today:
“Maybe I would have said it the following week. “I had decided on it for a long time.” “There is not going to be a Ferguson at Barça”
“Being Barça coach is a sensation… It’s a
Terrible wear and tear on mental health and mood. To the point where you say there’s no point in continuing,” he explains.
And he leaves a sentence: “It is impossible that
there is a Ferguson in Barça. “It has happened to all the coaches who have been at the club.”
