Xavi reveals his thoughts on Barcelona’s presidential race

Sun 20 December 2020 | 7:53

The Catalan has won eight La Liga titles and four Champions Leagues during his years at Barcelona, and two European Championships and the 2010 World Cup with Spain, making him one of the most decorated footballers in the history.

Despite his close relationship with

Victor Font

and his friendship with

Joan Laporta

, the Current

Qatari

side

Al Sadd’s

head-coach claims he won’t take sides ahead of the Blaugrana’s presidential race speaking to El Periodico de Catalunya.

“I am a Barcelona man and I don’t want to be pro any candidate,” he said. “I have a friendship with the both of them and I wish them both well, I love them very much,”

Xavi

said.

“I’ve had a close relationship with Font in the last five years where we’ve spoken a lot about the future of Barcelona and the sporting needs of the club.

“With Laporta, who’s only appeared [in the race] quite recently, I’m very much in tune. He’s been the best president I’ve had at Barcelona.”

Qataris

hope him to stay as

Al Sadd’s

head-coach until they host the 2022 World Cup.
