Xavi Hernández, former captain of Barcelona and current coach of Qatar’s Al Sadd, admitted that he has had offers from the Barça club in recent years but that “it was not the time.”
«What comes will come, it will be valued and we will decide. Things have come to us years ago, but it was not the time. Barça came and it was not the time. There’s no rush”, said the coach from Egar in an interview with ‘La Vanguardia’. And he insisted: “Fortunately or unfortunately I have said no to Barcelona twice, due to different circumstances, family, professional, contractual…
And to say that it is not very difficult because I am a cule, but it was not the moment”. In addition, he referred to the episode he experienced when he landed in Barcelona a few weeks ago at a time when Koeman’s continuity was doubted. “I land in Barcelona, they wait for me at the airport and as soon as I arrive, people send me messages.” “But they haven’t told you anything? Well, no, first because there is a coach who is Koeman, who must be respected, and then because I am not in any hurry, “Xavi Hernández considered.
Thus, he confirmed that his future for the moment is in Qatar after renewing for two years with Al Sadd. “We are very comfortable and open to other offers from clubs, but calmly. My priority now is family and I don’t feel the need to leave. I’m fine as I am”, clarified the coach.. EFE. (JL).
