Xavi Hernández is in the eyes of many the great culprit of the sporting situation of FC Barcelona, but the story goes further. With the departures of Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff, the coach lost a lot of weight in market decisions and Laporta has gradually excluded him from the club's management.

Perhaps Xavi is the villain of a badly explained history, or simply has sinned of 'innocent' and has paid the 'dishes broken' of the club, but with his goodbye, has showed that the Barcelona directive has won him the 'pulse'. The one of Terrassa leaves of the club of his loves after little more than two years, in a moment of chaos in the team and of doubts in all the areas of the club. And it is that Xavi abandons a team that seems very little to the that was when it arrived, since progressively it has seen how his importance in the direction of the club has gone mermando at the same time that his people of confidence abandoned the entity.

Of the influence of the Catalan only remains his staff technical, led by his brother, since with the exits of Jordi Cruyff and Mateu Alemany, the technician lost all type of authority in the operations of market and signings. Laporta Little by little was tracing a plan for adueñarse entirely of the reins of the club and leave to figures like Hernández out of the equation. Although at the beginning it was key in signings like Koundé, Kessié or Christensen, in his last months in the club has seen involved in signings that were not of his like.

The requests of the míster to the directive for this season centred in a pivote like Zubimendi and a mediocentro offensive creator like Bernardo Silva or Celso. Instead, what obtained was what decided in the cúpula managerial: Vitor Roque and the Joaos. His figure remained relegada to a flat second and in spite of that all the criticisms always head to he, little has been able to do to create a team chord to his wishes.

A directive that did not have he

Besides, the critical point of the situation of the ex player culé arrived in the month of September when the entity of the City Condal presented a new sportive organisation chart with a commission formed by Joan Laporta, Rafa Yuste, Deco, Masip and Bojan Krkic, neither trace of Xavi. The technician became the head of Turkish of the club, while the entity acted to his backs, without contemplating his interests. The start of the end.

The return of Hernández to the team of his life, became like a big history of love in which the Barça looked for to Alex Ferguson personal, but that only were illusions. His win to train to the Catalan team carried him to aliarse with Laporta, and without knowing it, had signed his sentence of death. To the egarense have gone him eating the toast and the changing room, engaged to the one hundred with his míster, also has been able to contemplate how the managerial has shelved it. Neither the good are so good, neither the bad are so bad.
