FC Barcelona is one of the most popular teams in the world, particularly due to the golden era when Lionel Messi was at the club. However, even in the last years of the Argentine star in the culé team, the coaches who led the team suffered a lot of criticism, as none of them managed to win the Champions League, a tournament that Barça has not won since 2015. However, with the arrival of Xavi Hernandez, a legend of the team, they thought that could change.

Xavi was one of the best players during the Pep Guardiola era at Barcelona and established himself as a legend during his time as a player. Without him, the Blaugrana would surely not have won so many titles, and there are even those who think that the 2010 Ballon d'Or should have gone to him and not Messi. The Spaniard was an absolute genius on the pitch and many believed he could bring that genius to Barça from the bench.

However, not everyone can be like Zinedine Zidane, who is a case like few others in the world, as he was a great star as a footballer and has also had resounding success in his career as a manager. That is why other clubs have wanted to repeat Real Madrid's formula with the Frenchman, but have not been able to do so, as few have known how to succeed on and off the pitch like Zidane.

In that sense, there is a Real Madrid legend who has strongly criticized Xavi Hernandez, saying that he was not ready to be the coach of Barcelona. We are talking about Guti, former Spanish player who in the program El Chiringuito, mentioned that "Xavi was not ready for Barça (...) We will stay with the fact that he got very little out of his players", he mentioned.

Xavi leaves

In view of the criticism and the poor results he has had as coach of FC Barcelona, Xavi Hernandez announced that at the end of the season he will step down as technical director of the Catalan club. That is why, despite still being alive in the Champions League and having mathematical possibilities of competing in La Liga, he has decided to step aside and the club is already looking for his replacement for next season.
