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
