Xavi Hernández has sufficient merits to turn into the new trainer of the FC Barcelona, after the exit of Ronald Koeman, and is not only for being one of the big legends of the Barcelona entity and a historical captain. The one of Terrassa, that won it everything like footballer, has done the same like trainer in the To the-Sadd with a game that calls the attention for the cataríes and with a team that anímicamente also feels champion.

From the Barça understand that many of the 'evils' that has the team, no all probably, can resolve with a change of trainer, because with Ronald Koeman saw to a team that did not have a clear idea of what was playing. Xavi is the favourite of the fans and also of the directivam because it is a culé of cradle that knows all the sectors and secrets of the club that has defended all his life, before it split to Catar to culminate his sportive career and give his first steps like trainer, in the To the-Sadd.

The true is that the preference goes further that it was a true legend of the FC Barcelona. Xavi has gone growing in the last years like trainer and defends the 'Cruyffismo', something that is vital for Joan Laporta and company. In fact, in some opportunity said that "my philosophy of trainer reflects the style that could develop during a lot of years thanks to the influence of Johan Cruyff, The Masia and the form to play to the football in Barcelona. It loves me see to the teams take the initiative in the field, play an offensive football and go back to the essence of what all love of this game from our days of infancy: the football of possession".

However, in the last days and, especially since they began the informations that Xavi could be the replacement of Ronald Koeman, has viralizado a video in which the one of Terrassa left a masterclass futbolística that is one 'proof' of what can become 'his' Barça or how will play if it is in the bench, something that asemeja to what is looking for the Barça to go back to be competitive.

In the video, Xavi explains that "the balloon is a treasure", stood out. "The key is to keep the control to have easy exit of the balloon and attack the low block, whereas in defence the high pressure in search of the error and the second played are the main appearances to take into account".

They are precisely factors in which it is failing, too much, the Barça. The high pressure of the players is a nightmare, especially because it notices that they can not force the exit of the balloon near of the rival by long. The Barcelona do not accustom to take advantage of of the errors of the rival and are very few the contragolpes -effective- that achieve to arm, among others so many appearances in which the group directed by Ronald Koeman was failing.

A lot of reasons back to Xavi

One of the factors that generate worry to the Barcelona fans is that the League catarí is not so competitive like the Europeans and that it can be a 'bump' for Xavi Hernández, but it is necessary to stand out that it has left very defined his style, ideas and expectations con with regard to his footballers, a key point in case it arrives to the Barça. Besides, Xavi already knows LaLiga and would not suppose a big 'adaptation' for him begin to direct a team in a distinct competition.

Another key point is The Masia, of where also comes Xavi. The Barça wants to 'explode' the talent of the new generation, as they appeared Busquets, Messi, Xavi, Iniesta... Players done home and that represent the values of the institution. The ex midfield player knows this and, besides, is in conociemiento of the 'new' stars of the club, also formed in the inferior categories: Ansu Fati, Nico González or Gavi.
