Xavi’s farewell

The only certainty is Xavi’s farewell, who will leave the technical leadership of Barcelona at the end of the season. He announced it himself after the lost match against Villarreal, which came after the defeat in the Spanish Super Cup against Real Madrid, the elimination in the Copa del Rey at the hands of Athletic Bilbao and the fourth place in the Liga at -11 from Girona leaders. “I will leave the club on June 30th. It’s a decision I took after talking about it with the president and my staff,” said Xavi.

‘Terrible strain on mental health’

“If today we had won 3-2 instead of losing – said Xavi again – maybe I wouldn’t have said it now, but maybe I would have done it next week. It was just finding the right moment, because it’s something I decided a long time ago“. “The feeling of being the coach of Barcelona – he continued – is unpleasant, and even cruel, you feel that many times they disrespect you, they don’t give value to your work, and these in terms of moods and mental health they are terrible efforts“. “I’m a positive person – concluded Xavi – but my energy has diminished to the point that I understand that it no longer makes sense to continue. But in these remaining months I will give everything, I think there is no doubt that I am a man linked to this club.”
