Barcelona President Joan Laporta to Meet with Coach Xavi Hernández

Barcelona president Joan Laporta is set to meet with coach Xavi Hernández next week to discuss the future of the managerial position. Sources have indicated that Laporta is considering whether to sack Xavi, following a trophyless season for the club. This meeting will also involve Barça sporting director Deco and other members of the sporting directorate.

Speculation has been swirling around Xavi’s future, with ESPN reporting that there are individuals within Laporta’s inner circle pushing for a coaching change. If Xavi were to be let go, potential candidates to replace him include Barça Atlétic coach Rafa Márquez, Hansi Flick, Thomas Tuchel, Thiago Motta, and former Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi.

Recent events have added to the chaotic nature of Xavi’s tenure at Barcelona. Comments made by him regarding the club’s financial difficulties have reignited discussions about his future as manager. Laporta, who has never fully supported Xavi, will use the upcoming meeting to evaluate the team’s performance this season and make a decision regarding the coaching position.

The meeting between Laporta and Xavi will involve a thorough analysis of Barcelona’s performance throughout the season. They will assess where the team may have gone wrong and discuss potential strategies for the future. Sources close to the situation have suggested that a definitive decision on Xavi’s position could be made shortly after the meeting.

Xavi took over as Barcelona’s coach in 2021 and guided the team to a LaLiga title in his first season. However, the team has struggled to maintain that level of success this year and will finish the season without adding any silverware to their trophy cabinet. The upcoming meeting between Laporta and Xavi will be crucial in determining the direction of the team moving forward.
