In recent months, the name of Xavi Hernandez is very often associated with FC Barcelona. The former Barça legend is regularly approached to become the new coach. At the end of the season with the poor results, the place of Ronald Koeman had been called into question and the arrival of the current coach of Al Sadd was announced. Finally, the Dutch technician was confirmed in his functions.
In an interview with La Vanguardia, Xavi explained that he failed his former club twice. “Fortunately or unfortunately, I said no to Barcelona twice, for different circumstances: family, professional, contractual … And it’s not easy because I’m dead, but now was not the time. What comes will come, will be appreciated and we will decide. We did things years ago, but now was not the time. Barça came and now was not the time. We renewed two years with Al Sadd, we are very comfortable and open to other club offers, but calmly. My priority now is my family and I don’t feel the need to leave. I am good as I am. I learn, I make mistakes, I am involved in a very nice project, which does not only concern Al Sadd but also the World Cup in Qatar, which will take place in a year. I will have an important role to play. “
