Xavi: “When Barça comes to me, it will happen”
Xavi’s contract renewal at Al-Sadd came as a surprise, many had already seen him as the successor to Quique Setien at FC Barcelona in the near future. However, as the 40-year-old made clear, postponement is not cancelled.
“I have always said that my main goal is Barça. This is my home, and it would be a dream,” he said to “Marca.” He did not mention a time, not least because he did not want to weaken the current coach Quique Setien: “We have to respect Quique Setien, I wish the team all the best.” But, as the 2010 World Champion also said: “If Barça comes to me, in the short or long term, it will happen.”
