In the FC Barcelona the surprise was maximum after the decision of Xavi Hernández to put an end to his stage like trainer culé when it finalise the present season. In the club did not have knowledge on the plans of the egarense and, minutes before the famous 'summit' with Joan Laporta before the press conference post party, the cúpula had reaffirmed his intention to trust he, even after the varapalo that supposed the defeat against the Villarreal with 'manita' included.

The maximum Barcelona mandator had kept a brief meeting with his just directors after the pitazo final in the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Compannys and took the decision of no destituir to the trainer, because they understood that the consequences -to the doors of the dispute of the Champions League- could be greater to any solution. Laporta, that had brought to Xavi after destituir to Ronald Koeman to seat the bases of the new Barça, did not doubt of him, by what the surprise was big.

Laporta Did not expect the 'bombazo' of Xavi

In the meeting in Lluís Compannys did not expect that the message went to be the one of that went to leave after 30 June. The surprise was absolute and the president understood that it was a decision in hot by what had meant the defeat, but shortly after Xavi transmitted him that it had decided it does some time with 'help' of his nearer circle, his family and technical body, and that had not gone back backwards. It was not, in no case, a relief for Laporta.

And it is that, as they inform in the newspaper 'SPORT', the Catalan lawyer remained "visibly affected" in front of the announcement of his trainer, to the point to be conmovido. In this moment, tried to convince him that it remained and established the bases to go out of the crisis and go back to compete by the titles, but Xavi already had given the last word. It did not want neither it wants to negotiate the possibility to continue further of 30 June of this year.

The players of the Barça, on the same line of Laporta

In the same dynamics of the president have been the players of the first staff, that remained quite affected by the decision of the trainer. Many asked him what could do so that it remained , but without success. Xavi already has left clear that, from the season that comes, will begin a new stage in the Barça in which it no longer will be in the head. Will have a time to rest and follow enjoying of the Barcelona, but now from the terracings.
