Xavi Hernandez is seen as a favorite to take over at Barcelona, but the former midfielder insists he is only focused on Al Sadd.

Barcelona

relieved

Ronald Koeman

of his duties as first-team coach following their disappointing 1-0 defeat to

Rayo Vallecano

on Wednesday evening.

The Catalan club are now looking for a new coach after sacking Ronald Koeman, with the Spanish club now ninth in La Liga and third in their Champions League group.

Sergi Barjuan

has been appointed as interim manager, with Xavi due to quit Al Sadd after their encounter with Qatar Stars League championship rivals

Al Duhail

next week.

Asked about the possibility of an impending return to Camp Nou on Thursday, Xavi said

: "I am focused on my work with Al Sadd and I won't talk about anything else."

Xavi left for Al Sadd in 2014 and finished his playing career there, before taking over as coach and leading them to seven domestic trophies.
