The Supercopa of Spain caused an earthquake in the FC Barcelona, and shook the seat of Ernesto Valverde in the bench. The surprising elimination in front of the Athletic of Madrid desató meetings, rumours and the publication of a list of possible candidates to relieve to the extremeño, that saved silence in front of the cumulus of news that aimed in his direction. The week was very moved in the City Condal.

One of the first options tanteadas by the Barcelona was Xavi Hernández, an absolute legend of the club. The one of Terrassa has credit by an exceptional path like player, and besides because it has confessed in several occasions that his dream is to return to the Camp Nou as technical. It does not do a lot of that hanged the boots and assumed responsibilities like trainer of the To the-Sadd, and in Qatar received a query.

An expedition culé led by Éric Abidal and Òscar Grau kept a talk with the Catalan, that after some days of reflection said that no. In spite of the exposed arguments by the technical secretary and the general director, the egarense preferred to step to a side, without closing totally the door but descartando his immediate incorporation. These would have been the reasons that pushed him to do it:

The reasons of the 'no' of Xavi to the Barça

It wants a new project

Xavi knows that the Barça supposes an opportunity of gold, but wants to begin of zero in a clean project and to his measure. Mudarse Now involves to throw forward with what there is because they still are LaLiga, the Champions and the Glass of the King in sight, but between his preferences is the alternative that had Pep Guardiola: Work in a team built with his guidelines and that adapt from the first moemnto to his idea of game.

It respects to Valverde

They are many the voices that have heaved to defend to Valverde, and the ex player understands that also it owes him respect. The managers of the entity have put to the ex of the Athletic Club in the centre of the target, and the today preparador of the To the-Sadd warned in his last press conference that does not go to speak of a place in which it already exists a qualified professional and with an agreement in force -until 30 June 2020-.

It respects to the To the-Sadd

On the same line it is the respect to the group qatarí, that gave him the opportunity to initiate his career in the benches. From it does already time, prepared all so that the transition was soft and without estridencias, and both parts have attained that the project do not see affected by the remarkable modifications made. With several titles conquered and the campaign to the half, leave would not be the most suitable.

It is engaged with his footballers

After forming part of the changing room, Xavi turned into the leader of the To the-Sadd, what supposes him a commitment of the that feels responsible. After struggling with his for raising a Supercopa of Qatar, reach the semifinals of the Champions Asian or the final of the Glass -in addition to being in full conflict by the league-, the ex footballer does not want to leave them in the palisade only for having an opportunity of greater prestige.

Would have a commitment with a candidate

Although it does not have bad relation with Josep Maria Bartomeu, would be engaged with another presidential candidate, of face to the elections that will celebrate in 2021. The project of Víctor Font obtained the 'himself' of the egarense to give the longed for jump, and to day of today, and adding the rest of justifications, Xavi considers that the best is to have patience and expect a moment more favourable for all.
