New Barcelona manager: Lionel Messi “Wishes Me Luck”: Xavi Hernandez, the new manager of FC Barcelona, claimed that his old teammate and buddy Lionel Messi texted him to congratulate him when he was named manager.
As the club’s new coach laid down a tough message during his unveiling on Monday, Xavi Hernandez stated Barcelona’s players will have to play by his rules and increase their standards. Xavi was introduced to around 10,000 spectators at Camp Nou before signing his contract on the field with his family and Barca president Joan Laporta. The 41-year-old stepped out to chants of “Xavi, Xavi” from his beloved fans, having returned to the club where he won eight La Liga crowns and four Champions Leagues as a player.
New Barcelona manager: “Today will be a historic day for Barca,” Laporta added.
Xavi is tasked with returning Barcelona to. Europe’s elite and rediscovering a style of play best identified with. Johan Cruyff and Pep Guardiola, despite the club’s debts of more than a billion euros ($1.16 billion).
However, Xavi’s main topic in a news conference following the presenting ceremony was less about aesthetics and more about substance. With the Spaniard emphasizing that the first objective is to restore order.
“The first point is to establish rules in the team,” Xavi explained.
“Then we talk about values: respect, attitude, and effort. We don’t have a team until we have these values.”
“After that, we may look at models of play, how we defend and attack, but first and foremost, the rules.”
Barcelona are currently in ninth place in. La Liga and are unlikely to make any substantial acquisitions in the near future.
“I understand it’s a difficult period, both financially and on the field,” Xavi stated.
“However, because we are Barca, the best club in the world, I will urge the players to have high standards.”
