The former Spain international is currently working at Al-Sadd in Qatar and he has been linked with the job at the Nou Camp in previous months. Now Xavi had admitted he would love to return to his former club as a head coach.
“The biggest hope I have now is to be Barca coach and get Barca back to winning ways,” Xavi said in an interview with Sport. As Al-Sadd boss Xavi has won the Qatari Super Cup and Qatar Cup. “Not me but these players and Barca triumphing. And as a consequence, our technical staff, who are preparing for it a lot and it makes us really excited.”
“I’m a club man. I would like to return at the right moment to start a project from zero. I’ve said it a lot of times but I want to take footballing decisions at Barcelona. It’s clear that after the elections the stage would be set, of course. I’m not ruling anything out. They came for me in January, we were speaking. I told them the circumstances and timing weren’t right.” The next presidential elections in Barcelona will take place in 2021.
