The FC Barcelona received a hard hit the past Sunday. In front of the need to achieve a good result in front of the Granada CF, square in places of descent (19°) and that carried seven consecutive commitments without adding points like visitor, to keep intact his aspirations in LaLiga, the directed by Xavi Hernández finished doing waters and attained a tie agridulce of 3-3. Of not being by a Lamine Yamal that had a night memorable in Montjuïc, the result had been even more bochornoso.

This situation only revives the 'ghosts' around the management of the technician egarense and increases the evident feeling of annoyance and frustration in all the levels of the club. The punctual errors, especially in defence, have caused that LaLiga escape them , to the equal that sucedió with the Glass of Rey and the Supercopa of Spain. Now only it remains them the Champions League like competition more 'peleable', although with the negative atmosphere generated in the last weeks, does not seem that it offer a panorama alentador. Soon they will have to measure to the Napoli, that, on the other hand, also is crossing a situation complicated.

Nevertheless, in spite of the recent dynamic refusal of the club, does not seem that it go to precipitate the dismissal of the technician of Terrassa. Although his cycle seems to have come to an end and announced his resignation for 30 June after the disaster in front of the Villarreal (3-5), apparently will finish the season in the Barcelona bench. This yes, the decision seems to be immovable, without mattering if the picture culé attains enderezar the course in the next months and have a finish of excellent campaign.

The immovable posture of the FC Barcelona with Xavi

Deco, sportive director of the club, whose name has sounded strongly in relation with the FC Barcelona, did some statements recently in the magazine 'Nascer do Sol' in which aseveró: "The new direction is fundamental and the president agrees with me in this. It needs a deep change. There is a method that is exhausted". However, later it cleared that there was an error of interpretation and the Portuguese finished cataloging this like a tergiversación to his words.

In any case, the statement of Deco leaves clear that the plan of the Barça with Xavi is invariable and that needs an imminent change. "Xavi presented his resignation. It remains until final of season but no longer more. It revealed that it does not feel able to give him to the team the change that needs. That it is necessary to change the things most deeply", began saying.

The exfutbolista luso finished his statement leaving clear that it was a decision consensuada and endorsed by the technician of Terrassa. "At least we coincide in the need of a radical change after today (the interview did after the defeat in front of the Villarreal home by 3-5). So radical that the own Xavi said that the club needs a new course". Therefore, it seems that, independently of how it finish the season, the worn cycle of Xavi Hernández like trainer of the FC Barcelona is finish.
