Santi Cazorla has supported Xavi to make it a success if he becomes Barcelona’s new coach and stressed that his compatriot will help the club to ‘return to its style’.

Barcelona legend Xavi is expected to be named the club’s new manager following the dismissal of Ronald Koeman this week.

Sergi Barjuan, the Barcelona B coach, has been put in interim charge, but Xavi, who is currently the coach of Qatar’s Al Sadd, is likely to be Koeman’s permanent successor.

Cazorla, who plays under Xavi at Al Sadd and was also his teammate in Spain, believes the 41-year-old would be the right date.

He said The spar: ‘Of course, Xavi is ready to coach Barça.

“Some people know the club well and know what it wants.

“He has a clear idea of ​​football. He wants the ball and be the protagonists. He’s going to do it on any team in the world that he coaches. ‘

Xavi, who played more than 700 games for Barcelona between 1998 and 2015, was known for being part of teams that played dynamic and fluid football.

Barcelona have deviated a bit from that style in recent years, but Cazorla feels that Xavi would be the right man to make the team play as expected.

Cazorla said: ‘It is what Barça needs, to return to their style.

‘Xavi likes possession a lot. Alternate between 4-3-3 and 3-4-3. Xavi always wants more and more possession.

‘Without the ball, we put a lot of pressure on the block. He has an idea of ​​the good years at Barça, when they pushed very high. ”

Since taking over from Al Sadd in 2019, Xavi has won 63 of his 95 matches in charge, drawing 15 and losing 17.

Xavi has won numerous trophies with Al Sadd, including the Qatar Stars League and two Qatari Cups.

Koeman was fired with Barcelona languishing in ninth place in LaLiga as he has struggled to deal with the departure of Lionel Messi.

There are some very talented young players at the club, including Ansu Fati and Pedri, but if Xavi took over, he would have a lot of work to do.

Xavi would face a lot of pressure, especially given his lack of coaching experience, but he would surely enjoy the opportunity to lead the club where he spent the vast majority of his career as a decorated player.
