Barcelona legend, Xavi Hernandez has revealed his intention to manage the Catalan Giants in the future. The 36-year-old who left the sanish club for Doha-based Al Sadd in 2015 after making more than 700 appearances and winning 25 trophies disclosed this during an interview in the May 2016 issue of FourFourTwo magazine.
“I have no doubts. I want to stay in football, being close to the pitch. I would hate being stuck in an office. I want to do something properly or not at all. My ultimate objective is to coach Barcelona. I’m not hiding that. I want to work again for that house I consider a home.
“Whenever I have 10 minutes to myself, bang – the football goes on the TV. My wife knows that, and she hates football,” he laughs. “I’ll put on La Liga and keep an eye on the Premier League games, too. I’ll study the line-ups, and who’s scored, on my phone.” He hinted.
