Al Sadd: "Xavi has a two-year contract"
The Al Sadd team will not make it easy for Xavi Hernández to leave FC Bacelona, considering the hallway rumors of the hiring of the Spanish coach to direct the Catalans, who recently fired the Dutch coach Ronald Koeman.
This is how the Qatari team has indicated this Friday that its technical coach, the Spanish Xavi Hernández, still has two more years of contract with the club's entity, this in relation to all the information that has been circulating in recent days and to which the Qatari club responds.
This is how the club's administration has confirmed that Xavi is still linked with them and is focused on the team's next matches, who will try to maintain the first position in the League and defend that title. This was made known by Al Sadd through his Twitter account, accompanied by a photo of the Spaniard.
His relationship with Barcelona
The name of Xavi Hernández has been related to Barcelona since last summer, when it was announced that Joan Laporta wanted a new project for the club. Despite all these rumors of his hiring, the Spanish club has not come forward, and they have introduced Sergi Barjuán as the Barcelona coach on an interim basis.
The Catalans do not think to rush with the election of the next coach, since they are looking for a long-term project so Laporta will try to make the best signing of all.
Xavi left Barcelona at the end of the 2014/2015 season, just after they won the Champions League, at that time he signed with Al Sadd, where he played four seasons as a professional player and then began his career as a coach there. Since then, he has managed to add seven titles.
