“I don’t know what’s going to happen [with Xavi]. They have an interim manager and I wish him good luck, he’s a close friend of mine,” Pep Guardiola has told the media, as per Mundo Deportivo.
“Xavi, if that happens I have no doubt that ‘he is willing to have it do the job.
He knows the environment. He knows the game, he has passion. He has more experience now than I had when I took over
“Success depends on recruiting and players. People forget that we are responsible but our influence isn’t huge,” the Catalan coach added.
Xavi is expected to take over at the beginning of November.
For now, Barca’s interim coach will be Sergi Barjuan who played alongside Pep Guardiola in the 1990s.
