After the fiasco that supposed to lose the semifinals of the Supercopa of Spain, several players of the FC Barcelona went out to give the face in front of the press. Luis Suárez, Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann were autocríticos and left clear that were not happy with the level of the Barça in front of the Athletic. The three coincided in that the footballers were the big culprits of the defeat and did not hold responsible to Ernesto Valverde.

The directive, on the other hand, yes seems to have blamed of all to the 'Txingurri', since only a day afterwards Abidal gathered with Xavi Hernández. The Barcelona technical secretary seems that it offered him do charge of the already same team or to more take in summer. The ex midfield player of Terrassa still would not have decided and says that this Sunday will know if it accepts or no the proposal barcelonista.

The changing room seemed to be to death with Valverde, by what perhaps could take badly this decision. But the newspaper 'Sport' ensure the contrary and signals that a lot of heavy weights of this vestidor have given him the seen well to Xavi. It seems that some player already would have put in contact with him by means of the mobile to ask after him his future and interest by his situation.

In other words the Champion of the World with Spain would have the acceptance of the important footballers of the Barça, in spite of the respect that keep still by the one of Viandar of the Edge. The mentioned newspaper, nevertheless, affirms that good part of this changing room no longer sees to the extremeño like antaño. It seems that after the third trip important with the 'Txingurri' in the bench, many would have arrived to the conclusion that a change could be positive for all.

The change of mentality of the staff

The ridiculous of Rome and Anfield no minaron the morals of the changing room, but the defeat in the Supercopa yes would have done that some players change of opinion. These last months already there have been speeches very critical with the game of the Barça of footballers like Messi, Suárez or Ter Stegen. The fiasco in front of the Athletic would have caused that this go to more and that some think that a change of trainer could be positive.

The staff does not think that Valverde was the culprit of the already mentioned failures, but now perhaps think that the best way to go out forward was with new air. Xavi would be the man chosen to be able to go out of this bad situation and the changing room would be of his part. It will be necessary to see if the Catalan also is had to risk and accept this challenge.
