Barcelona sack Xavi with replacement already lined up

Xavi infuriated club president Joan Laporta earlier this month with statements that the club could not compete with Real Madrid without huge signings, although allegedly insisting that was not the case in private meetings with club executives.

The decision to fire Xavi was announced in an official statement, which congratulated the Spaniard “for his work as a coach, which adds to an unparalleled career as a player and captain of the team, and wishes him all the luck in the world.

” Barcelona has also confirmed that Xavi will lead the club’s final game of the season, which is away to Sevilla on Sunday.

Hansi Flick, former Bayern Munich manager, is set to follow Xavi. Earlier this week, a contract was reached with the former Germany manager, who has stated that he will prioritise Barcelona’s interest over overtures from other teams.
