Xavi Hernandez successfully led Barcelona as the Catalan giants won the La Liga championship in the 2022/23 season. That achievement was achieved despite the club’s ongoing financial problems. The problems will continue into the 2024/25 season.
However, this season, Blaugrana is ranked 3rd in La Liga. In addition to losing 1-2 at home to Real Madrid, Barcelona also lost 0-1 to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. Those poor results have led to suggestions that Xavi’s future is in doubt.
However, according to ESPN, Club officials have no plans to fire the legendary midfielder at the Nou Camp. Sources confirm Xavi is part of the long-term project and will not be sacked for short-term results.
The source also added that the Barca dressing room is very united to surpass Girona and Real Madrid on the La Liga rankings. At this time, the Catalan giant is 2 points behind those two opponents.
Since leading Barcelona for nearly two years, Xavi has 66 wins and 21 losses in 106 matches.
