      Off-field circus in Catalonia continues

      Xavi sacked by Barcelona, Flick to replace him

      Barcelona have confirmed that they have decided to part company with manager Xavi Hernandez following a fall out between the former Barca captain and president Joan Laporta.

      Reports in Spain had begun to suggest as much in the last couple of weeks with the view being that it is indeed a sacking, rather than anything in terms of ‘mutual consent’.

      The expectation is that the Catalan club will replace the 2022/23 La Liga winning coach with former Bayern Munich and Germany boss Hansi Flick. 

      Xavi had announced his decision to depart the club in mid-January but a turnaround in form and some talks with the club led to a u-turn being confirmed at the start of this month.

      However, less than four weeks later, he has now been fired by Joan Laporta and the former Al Sadd coach is expected to depart after Barcelona’s final game of this season against Sevilla on Sunday evening at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

      Hansi Flick had been linked with the Bayern Munich job, where he won the treble in 2020, but he will now move to Spain after being sacked by Germany mid-way through the September international break last year.

      Wow, what a rollercoaster for Xavi at Barcelona. It's a shame to see him go, especially after leading the team to a La Liga title. Grateful for his time at the club, but I can't help but feel disappointed by Laporta's decision.

      Wow, can't believe Barcelona has fired Xavi Hernandez. Such a shame after his recent turnaround in form. Hope he finds success elsewhere.

      As a fan, I am disappointed to hear about the decision to part ways with Xavi. It's clear that there has been a major fallout between him and the president. Hopefully, the club will find a suitable replacement in Flick.
