LaLiga: It won’t be easy – Xavi warns next Barcelona manager

Xavi Hernandez has warned the next Barcelona manager about the difficulty involved in the job.

The 44-year-old took charge of his last game on Sunday with a 2-1 win over Sevilla.

The win came two days after Barca announced that Xavu would be sacked this summer.

Hansi Flick is expected to replace Xavi, with the Germán coach’s appointment believed to be imminent.

“They have to know it is a difficult situation, because Barcelona is a difficult club, but also because of the adverse financial situation, above all [LaLiga’s] financial fair play rules,” Xavi said when asked if he had any advice for his successor.

“It won’t be easy at all. They will suffer and they will need patience because it’s a really difficult job. The only thing that can save them is winning, whether they have been part of the club or not [previously].

“I have been looked at through a magnifying glass and a certain level of expectations were generated, because I was part of Barça’s best-ever era, which has played against me.”
