Barcelona approves Xavi as new main team coach


Barcelona have confirmed former midfielder, Xavi as their new first-team coach with a contract until 2024, following Koeman’s sacking.

Dutch coach, Ronald Koeman was sacked after a 10-match loss to Rayo Vallecano last month, leaving Barca ninth in La Liga. The Spanish side were given the green light to sign the club’s 41-year-old legend on Friday, after paying his release date with Qatari side AlSadd.

“FC Barcelona have reached an agreement with Xavi Hernandez for him to become first team coach for the rest of the current season and two more seasons,” the club said in a statement welcoming him back to the club.

Xavi Hernandez played for Barcelona for 17 years, making 767 appearances and winning 25 trophies, including four Champions League wins and eight league titles.
