Xavi: Coaching Barcelona is extremely difficult & financially unfavorable, and the next coach will suffer

Live broadcast on May 27 Barcelona defeated Sevilla 2-1, Xavi ended the last game in charge of Barcelona. Speaking to DAZN after the game, Xavi spoke about the difficulties of managing Barcelona and the problems that the next manager will face.

"I don't think the work we've done is being taken seriously enough, given the unfavourable situation we're in," Xavi said. When we arrived at Barcelona at the end of 2021, the team was 9th in the table. In the end, we finished second. Then in our first full season in charge, we won the [La Liga + Spanish Super Cup] double.

It's true that we didn't reach the required level this year, but there were details in a couple of key games. It's a shame and I'm sad too, but that's what a coach does. ”

What advice do you have for the next coach?

Xavi: "They have to understand that the situation here is difficult because Barça is a difficult club and it is accompanied by a bad financial situation and, crucially, the principle of financial fairness [in La Liga].

'It's never going to be easy, they're going to have to suffer and they're going to have to be patient because it's a very tough job. The only thing that can save them is to win, whether they were once part of the club or not.

'People look at me with a magnifying glass and expect something from me because I was involved in one of the best eras in Barça's history, but the times are not in my favor.

About the reason for your dismissal

Xavi: "I don't have the right to explain, that's what the president of the club has to answer. I can only accept and respect. The decision has been made, there is no turning back, the club is above anyone, even if I want to stay.

'I am aware of the club's decision, I respect but also regret it, it's a paradoxical emotion because despite not winning the title this season, the work is still positive, I think we are on the right path and I still think so.

'But that's football, you have to make a decision. I'm happy, proud and satisfied with what we've achieved, it's a fact that we have won two trophies in two and a half years at a disadvantageous, difficult situation for the club.

"I couldn't work in peace, and when we decided to stay a month ago, we asked for stability. We thought we could do that by staying in and were eager to work hard, but that's the reality of coaching. ”
