Xavi is warned by Luis Suarez about replacing Koeman at Barcelona.


Former Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has warned Xavi Hernandez that now is not the time for the 41-year-old to return to the Camp Nou and take over as manager from Ronald Koeman. Following Wednesday’s humiliating 3-0 loss to Benfica in the Champions League, Koeman is under even more pressure. According to Diario Sport, Xavi is one of four names linked to the position. According to RAC1, president Joan Laporta’s shortlist includes Belgium coach Roberto Martinez, former Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo, and River Plate’s Marcelo Gallardo. Although Suarez believes Xavi is a “very qualified coach,” he believes the former midfielder should wait before taking on the job of his dreams at the Camp Nou, according to Jordi Gil of Diario Sport. “As a football fan and what he’s done as a player, I don’t believe today, tomorrow, or the day after is the time.”

He is intelligent and understands the club’s difficulty. “He has to wait for the right time ,” he explained. ” He already has colleagues within the club with whom he will have to make difficult decisions. ”

Suarez also suggested that Xavi wait for the right moment to return to Barcelona so that he can “be as great as a coach as he was as a player.” ”

Xavi is currently managing Al-Sadd in Qatar for the first time. Last season, he led his team to the league championship without losing a single game, and in May 2021, he signed a contract extension that runs until 2023.

Koeman To Remain In Charge For Now?

Koeman To Remain In Charge For Now? For the time being, Koeman appears to be set to remain in charge of Barcelona. According to Marca, the Dutch coach will be retained for Saturday’s La Liga match against defending champions Atletico Madrid. The 58-year-old, however, will once again be forced to watch the match from the stands after serving a two-match suspension for his red card in the goalless draw against Cadiz.

Koeman was in the stands for Saturday’s 3-0 win over Levante in La Liga, but he was back on the bench for Wednesday’s 3-0 loss to Benfica, which has severely harmed the team’s chances of reaching the Champions League knockout stages.

With the loss, the Catalan giants are now winless in their first two group stage matches. According to Opta, Barcelona has failed to score a goal in both games, which is a first for the club in European competition. President Laporta is said to have questioned whether Xavi has the experience to take over as Barcelona manager right now, but the midfielder’s former teammate Andres Iniesta believes he is the right man for the job.

Iniesta Backs Xavi To Take Charge

According to Diario Sport, the Vissel Kobe midfielder can imagine Xavi returning to Barcelona and sitting on the bench. “I believe so, yes..”

If you ask me if I picture Xavi on the Barca bench, I’ll say yes,” he said. “First and foremost, because he has been preparing and training to coach Barca. He is self-assured enough to take on this challenge. ”

Xavi has always seemed destined to return to Barcelona, and he has openly admitted that coaching the Catalans is his dream. It’s unclear whether Barcelona will make a move for their club legend now or if they believe he needs more time to develop as a coach.
