The impact a good coach can have on a team is simply astonishing.
Last season, Real Madrid managed to get results, but they were boring to watch. Meanwhile, since Ancelotti came in, their performances in LaLiga have been wonderful.
Chelsea with Lampard were horrible, but when Tuchel took over, everybody knows what happened… Champions of Europe while dominating every single team they faced.
Bayern with Nico Kovac in 2019/20 were really disappointing. They even lost 5-1 to Frankfurt. But Hansi Flick managed to turn around the situation, and won the treble in the same season.
We desperately need a good coach. We might not have a squad to challenge for the Champions League, but it is more than good enough to win LaLiga.
A coach who trusts and nurtures the young talents of La Masia. A coach who can get the best out of Barça’s great midfield. A coach who can prepare well tactically for every match. A coach like that can make all the difference at Barça.
Ronald Koeman isn’t that coach. Roberto Martinez isn’t either. They are Everton rejects ffs.
We need a true Cruyffista, like Pep Guardiola, Luis Enrique, Erik ten Hag. But knowing that they aren’t available, who better than Xavi can lead this Barça forward?
Xavi might be unexperienced, but I would rather bet on him, than on an experienced and mediocre coach like Roberto Martinez.
Xavi lacks experience, but he is a footballing genius, and I have no doubt he will excel as coach.
Look what Guardiola said in 2019:
Xavi was already a manager when he played. His eyes sparkled watching football. He has passion, dedication, he is brave and bold, he likes to manage and he focuses on everything. Xavi will be a great coach.”
I trully hope President Laporta choses him as Koeman’s successor. He can build Barça back, step by step.
