Barcelona set to sack Koeman and Appoint Xavi as next coach.

Reports coming in early this morning indicate that Barcelona are set to part ways with Ronald Koeman and will appoint former captain and midfielder Xavi as their next coach.

This comes after poor performance from Ronald Koeman and his management style. In the last two games, Barcelona has gone to draw both games and in those games, they have played 80 crosses. This is very different from the tiki-taka style Barcelona is noted for.

People around the board are confident that Xavi is the next man to replace Koeman as the former Everton manager has lost the trust of the board in the management of the team.

Koeman who lost his control and was given a red card in yesterday’s match, admitted that the referee for the game was unprofessional. He said “in this country, they send you off for nothing”. This was after Frankie De Jong was sent off for two yellow cards.

Barcelona have currently won just two games and drawn 3 and sit 7th on the league table with 9 points. Many fans have blamed the exit of Lionel Messi on their current crises. However, President of the club, Laporta has called to calm fans down with the excuse that they are currently rebuilding the club and it will challenge for trophies soon.

Do you think Xavi can lead this team to glory? And who do you want to see as the next coach of Barcelona?

Kindly share and comment.
