Xavi, smashing publicity at Barça!

While Barça was left with another disappointment on Wednesday in the Copa del Rey, Xavi clearly opened the door to a departure at the end of the season.

Barca have no chance of winning a trophy this season. Distance in La Liga, where it already has eight points outlay on Girona and seven on Real Madrid, and faced with very tough competition in the Champions League, with the Round of 16 a double confrontation to come with Naples, the Catalan club was in fact eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey by Bilbao. In placement in the Basque Country, the Blaugrana will be inclined 4-2 after extra time.

This new disillusionment further weakens Xavi, who himself opened the door to a departure last week by indicating that he would leave his post if Barça did not win a trophy this season. “All coaches of big teams dependent on titles”, he confided, however not intending to give up on Wednesday: “We will try to win La Liga and the Champions League. I am serene. The rest of the titles are more important. We will fight for them. »

However, if he does not succeed in reversing the trend, his departure seems inevitable. “It’s a real thing and the main thing. If it is not at the level of competition at the end of the season, the choice is normal and is part of all coaches, he thus confided . When you hear it, you have alarms, but you have the information to save you two games. We are in a big club, I know where I am and they are demanding titles from me. “Or at least compete to win some.”
