After parting ways with Ronald Koeman , Joan Laporta s was looking for a new coach. And the priority of the president of FC Barcelona was a long-standing track: Xavi. It's been some time now that the Spanish technician has been courted by his former club. And after many twists and turns in the file, Barça and Al-Sadd finally reached an agreement, synonymous with a return to Catalonia for Xavi . If this is a “dream come true” for the 2010 world champion, it could have come true much sooner.

Xavi had refused Barcelona in January

During his presentation official, Xavi revealed that he could have been recruited twice by FC Barcelona , but that he did not yet feel ready for such a challenge: “The first two times Barcelona have come, in January I was not ready, both at the family level and myself, I needed more time. Then it was summer, there was an election in the middle, and there was a lot of uncertainty, now was not the time. Then Joan called me, I always said he was the best president in Barça history. I know he's a straight guy, and now was the time. “
