According to Al Kas Barcelonan ex-midfielder, Xavi Hernandez will purportedly leave the post of the Qatari club’s coach at the end of the current season. As the channel stated, the managing team of the club refused to extend the contract with the 41-year-old coach.
What is the following path for Xavi? Back in the future?
This news influenced Barca and its fans, as the Catalonian ex-start is expected to come back to his native team; meanwhile, the club has been undergoing quite challenging times right now. Ronald Kuman has won the national cup and still has chances to win the Spanish La Liga. This is why there are no evident reasons to fire the Dutch coach this year.
As for Xavi Hernandez, some pitfalls exist as well. On the one hand, he is among the brightest legends of FC Barcelona, who’s won a bunch of trophies with the club. On the other hand, there arises a question – is Xavi ready to head the team in such a challenging year? Both managers and supporters don’t have clear answers.
Qatari results. Is Xavi a top coach?
The Catalonian star came to Qatar in 2015, starting his Asian career as a football player. Since 2019 Hernandez has been working as the team’s coach. What about his local successes? As a player, Xavi won the national championship and three cups in Qatar. As for his coaching career, the Catalonian star won the national championship and 5 cups with Al Sadd. Meanwhile, Xavi didn’t achieve the main local trophy (Asian Champions League).
This said, Hernandez is a good and experienced coach; meanwhile, Al Sadd and Barcelona are the two different worlds with their own purposes and “must haves.”
Barcelona to have chances for La Liga first place
This season is quite complicated for Barcelona. Meanwhile, online sports betting considers the Catalonian team as the main candidate for the national victory. The odds for their overall victory are just 2.50, while the top-3 includes Atletico and Real Madrid as well. The recent victory against Valencia showed that Barcelona is ready to fight until the last minute of the tournament.
This is why Kuman has pretty good chances to stay for the next season. The new president won’t have the moral right to fire a coach who’s won the national cup and La Liga. The Dutch specialist understands this fact.
