Barcelona Gives Xavi The Sack Letter

Written by Abdul

 

Barcelona has made the shocking decision to terminate the contract of manager Xavi Hernandez, just a month after convincing him to stay on in the role.

The 44-year-old coach had initially announced his intention to leave the club at the end of the season in January but reversed his decision in April after a run of strong form. However, recent comments from Xavi discussing the club's financial predicament reportedly provoked the ire of club president Joan Laporta, leading to the sudden decision to part ways with the manage.

The move comes as a surprise, especially given Xavi's success in leading the team to the Spanish Super Cup title and the league title last season. Despite the team's recent struggles, Xavi had been praised for his ability to develop young players and maintain stability within the club. His departure marks the end of an era for Barcelona, and the club is expected to appoint former Bayern Munich and Germany manager Hansi Flick as his replacement.
