In the FC Barcelona there is not time for the rest and the 'normality' has turned into a myth, at least in the dispatches. When all seemed calm, three week after the press conference of Joan Laporta beside Xavi Hernández in which he same ratified the continuity of the trainer egarense by a season more, the history has given a twist of 180 degrees and the future of the excentrocampista goes back to be in the air.

In the club of the City Condal there would be maximum tension by the statements of Xavi in press conference, in the previous of the visit to the UD Almería in the Power Horse Stadium. It had explained that "the culé has to understand that the situation is difficult; especially to economic level (…). When have the photo of the staff, will speak"... A 'bathroom' of reality that would not have liked, neither a bit, to the Barcelona directors.

The statements of Xavi 'get angry' to the Barça

These statements would have been the reason by which Joan Laporta and 'Deco' Souza, sportive director, did not form part of the expedition to visit Almería by the day 36 of LaLiga. 'Catalonia Ràdio' and other sources suggest that the maximum mandator took the decision, to ultima hour, of not travelling to accompany to the team as in the majority of the parties to domicile of this course. The speech of Xavi did not like him and is contrary to what had transmitted, does some weeks, when it accessed to give turn backwards to his intention to do his maletras in what it finished the course. Said intention had communicated it on 27 January, after the defeat 3-5 against the Villarreal in Montjuïc.

The Barça would have again doubts on the continuity of the Barcelona trainer, mainly by the contradiction that there is between what had communicated personally to the club and the statements in press conference. Likewise, the journalist Victor Navarro has indicated that in the core of Joan Laporta there is those who insist in that Xavi does not have to continue to the control of the bench in the season that comes. They do not see him with options to follow and could desatar the enésima "novel" in the club regarding this commonplace.

Doubts on the future of Xavi in the Barça, again

For the moment, there is not at all clear on what can happen with the one of Terrassa. It is worth it to remember that, after the defeat in front of the Girona in Montilivi, the trainer aimed that "there will be debate on my future". Now, there are more doubts and the next days can be keys to define if it exists the possibility that it leave or, by the contrary, keep the leaf of route that had defined on 25 April, when it produced the press conference of Joan Laporta and Xavi.
