Xavi’s return to Barcelona is already official. The former Barça player will be presented at the Camp Nou in the next few days and will direct his first match with the Catalans after the national team break.
Xavi perfectly understands how this club works and has the necessary knowledge to turn the situation around. At least in the sporting aspect, since it is already known that Barça’s problems extend to the financial section.
His arrival on the culé bench has been managed around three requests:
One of the aspects that worried the Catalan a lot is the management of Barça’s medical services. The last few years and especially the beginning of this season have been marked by a multitude of injuries and Xavi wants by all means to prevent this from happening again. Ricard Pruna, with 25 years of experience in the club seems to be the chosen one.
The former Barça player wants to have the coaching staff that has accompanied him during his time at Al-Sadd. His intention is to have seven of the assistants who worked with him in Qatar: Óscar Hernández, Sergio Alegre, Ivan Torres (physical trainer), Carlos Nogueira (physio) and those in charge of the scouting work; David Prats, Toni Lobo and Sergio García.
The Catalan has made it quite clear that his intention is to play with two pure extremes. Ousmane Dembélé and Ansu Fati would be chosen to raise a hypothetical starting eleven, but the physical condition of the Frenchman worries Xavi a lot. He has asked the club to try to bring Raheem Sterling into the transfer market.
