Miralem Pjanic ‘hopeful’ of his Barcelona future following Xavi’s arrival

Miralem Pjanic is counting his chickens following the appointment of Xavi Hernandez as Barcelona manager.

Pjanic is hopeful of returning to a plain playing field at Barcelona next season and fighting for his place, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Bosnian was ostracised under Ronald Koeman.

He managed just 6 starts and a total of 19 La Liga appearances.

As a result, the 31-year-old battled with a poor run of form and failed to register a goal or assist all season.

However, Pjanic is currently enjoying a new lease of life on loan at Besiktas where he’s contributed 4 assists in his first 8 games
