Xavi is the preferred option by the majority within the club to replace Ronald Koeman as the Barcelona coach, as per the reliable Javi Miguel of Diario AS.
However, Joan Laporta was reluctant to hire him back in the summer. It’s unclear whether he will change his mind on Xavi or bet on a coach with more experience, with Roberto martinet and Antonio conte named as options.
Catalunya Radio’s Ramon Salmurri claims that Laporta remains patient and has no intention to rush things regarding the sacking of Koeman. At the moment, there’s no clear decision as to who will the possible replacement be.
The financial aspect of sacking the Dutchman won’t be a problem, the source adds, as Barca have got enough money following their recent loan taken from Goldman Sachs.
