Xavi could stay at Barcelona

According to Mundo Deportivo, Xavi Hernandez could yet change his mind about leaving his position as the Barcelona head coach at the end of the season.

Xavi’s announcement appears to have relieved the pressure off the shoulders of his players, and his ability to find the right balance between the experience of players like Robert Lewandowski and Ilkay Gundogan, along with the youth and talent of Lamine Yamal and Pau Cubarsi has yielded excellent results. Though still eight points behind Real Madrid in the La Liga standings, the Catalans have come close to booking a place in the semifinals of the Champions League after their victory over Paris Saint-Germain in France this week, which is probably more than many expected of them in this competition only a few months ago.

Club president Joan Laporta is very much keen on having Xavi remain in his job, but his ability to change the mind of the former midfielder will depend on many things, summer transfers not least, with Xavi adamant that certain reinforcements are needed for the team to compete more strongly next season.
