Not only for his inexperience, the risks Barcelona could take if they appoint Rafa Márquez as their coach

FC Barcelona are considering to appoint Rafael Marquez as their

Xavi is worried during an FC Barcelona match while Rafael Marquez gives the thumbs up.

FC Barcelona may choose Rafael Maruqez as the replacement for Xavi next season, but the risk is not only his inexperience but also his results with his team, Barca Atletic. Marquez is in charge of the youth players at the club, but the number he puts up with them is not consistent. The Mexican coach has managed 72 Barca Atletic games, where he has won 34, drew 20, and lost 18. His preferred formation he uses with the young Barcelona team is an offensive 4-3-3 system. His managerial career started in 2021, and his inexperience worries Barcelona fans.

He became the manager of Barca Atletic in the summer of 2022, and his contract with the team expires this summer. He was a youth coach at RSD Alcala from 2020 to 2021 before taking the youth Barcelona team. The Mexican legend retired from football in 2018. The lack of time and the results together make him an unwanted candidate to replace Xavi and become the next manager of the Catalan first team.

Marquez is regarded as a Barcelona legend, and he made 242 appearances for the club in his career. He scored 13 goals and provided 13 assists. As a center-back, he received only one straight red card and received two yellow cards on five occasions. He picked up 54 yellow cards during his time at FC Barcelona. He has won La Liga four times, the Copa del Rey one time, the Supercopa twice, a FIFA Club World Cup, and two Champions League titles.

The reasons why FC Barcelona may pick Marquez as their new coach

Sport reports that FC Barcelona has reportedly chosen Marquez because of his results with Barca Atletic, his knowledge of the youngster at the club, his familiarity with the club's economic situation, and his relationship with the club president Joan Laporta. Barcelona won't have to pay to bring Marquez in as new head coach since his contract with Barca Atletic expires this summer, and he is already involved in the club.
