Xavi could be sacked by Barcelona as president Joan Laporta is miffed with some of his recent statements made to the media.

Xavi To Be Sacked By Barcelona Despite Recent Contract U-turn

Just 23 days ago, Laporta and Xavi held a joint press conference where it was announced that the manager would honour his contract at Camp Nou and would not sever ties with the club at the end of the campaign, as he had wanted to do so back in January.


However, Xavi’s comments to the press before facing Almeria have seemingly not gone down well with the club’s hierarchy, which has put his position at risk, according to RAC1.

Noticeable Scepticism

When asked if Barcelona could compete for major silverware with their current squad, Xavi responded with noticeable scepticism.

“We are going to try to compete against Madrid.

“I think that the club must understand that the situation is very difficult,” he had said.


“Above all, on an economic level.

“We have an economic situation that has nothing to do with 25 years ago.

“Also, we can no longer go out and pick and say ‘I want this one, this one, and that one.’

“We are not in the same conditions as other clubs with very advantageous economic situations.


“The Barcelona fans have to understand it.

“That does not mean that we do not want to compete, but that is Barca’s situation at the moment.


“We need stability and time, but we will try to compete.”

The response reportedly angered Laporta, who felt that Xavi had reneged on their prior agreements.

Laporta and the board believe that Xavi’s comments contradicts the confident and triumphant narrative he had shared just three weeks earlier, which had played a significant role in their decision to keep him on as head coach.

Secondly, the board feels that despite significant efforts to strengthen the squad, Xavi has failed to maximize the potential of the new signings.
