Xavi Hernández grants this Saturday an interview to La Vanguardia in which the Barça legend admits that he has been close to training Barça before: “I have said twice no to Barcelona (…) And that is very difficult because I am very culé “. Of course, not this summer.
But Xavi does not deny that his dream is to sit on the bench at the Camp Nou : “I feel more prepared than the first day, I am open. I am not fooling anyone; I prepare for that, but you have to respect Koeman; a legend of the club with one more year of contract “.
In the interview, which promises a second delivery to talk about the Eurocup, Xavi explains that “I’m not in a hurry” to coach Barça: “Whatever has to come, it will come.”
He also defends Barça icons such as Busquet s: “The Barça environment is a crusher and Busquets has suffered and we have all suffered with him. For a group, Busquets is unquestionable. I hallucinate with him.” The Al Sadd coach thinks that “Barça and Madrid have gone down”, although there are things about the Barça team that he liked this year: “I love it when the team is going to push very high.”
