FC Barcelona suffered a painful 3-5 defeat at home against Villarreal, leaving them 10 points behind Real Madrid in the table. Xavi Hernandez, the coach and club legend, had been dealing with a series of negative results, including losing the Spanish Supercup, the Copa del Rey, and struggling in La Liga. Despite trying to keep the team together, Xavi announced that he will not continue coaching Barcelona next season, leaving at the end of the current season.

After the loss against Villarreal, Xavi made the announcement in the press room, stating that he believes the club needs a change of dynamic and that the players are under too much pressure. He expressed his decision to leave as a way to prioritize the well-being of the team. Despite the criticism against him and the club, Xavi remains committed to giving his best for the remainder of the season.

Xavi’s tenure at Barcelona began in November 2021 and will not reach three full seasons. During his time as coach, he led the team to win the 2022-23 La Liga and the Spanish Supercup in the same season. When asked if winning the Champions League could change his mind, Xavi stated that his decision is final.

The announcement comes at a critical time for Barcelona, as they continue to struggle in various competitions. Xavi’s departure will mark the end of an era for the club, and the search for a new coach will begin as they look to turn their fortunes around. Despite the challenges, Xavi remains optimistic about the team’s potential for the remainder of the season.
