Today there are many possibilities that the one who was the key midfielder in the Barça of the records, Xavi Hernández, will return home as the new coach of the Blaugrana team. The former player is now the coach of Al-Sadd, the club where he ended his playing career and where he began his career as a coach.
Xavi’s departure was the end of the cycle, as Barça lost one of the key pieces of the system that had led the team to dominate Europe and play wonderful football. The player left through the big door in 2015 after winning the treble with Luis Enrique, and the last meeting at the Camp Nou was on May 23 of that year, in a La Liga match, in which the Barça that already nothing was being played, they tied at 2 against Deportivo.
That day the culé midfielder who already knew it was his last game at home, received a warm tribute from the fans to whom he had given so much and from his teammates, whom he had made better.
Now Xavi must return to try to reverse the situation, although he will do so in a very difficult situation. The squad is far from the level of the best in Europe, due to the little experience of some, and the lack of quality in some positions. For now, those who have had the privilege of training under him, like Cazorla, only speak highly of him. The fans await him with open arms, but everyone knows of the complication in which he would arrive, and they are afraid that he will burn out before his time. Guardiola arrived in a similar situation, but with a much better squad, so parallels are not allowed between the two. Perhaps they should have tried harder to get Xavi to take over in the summer, so he would have planned the season better, but if he comes now he will surely do great.
