Font: Barca made the best decision appointing Xavi

The ex-Blaugrana presidential candidate thinks that the club will be immediately affected under the reign of Xavi Hernandez.



Xavi Hernandez

on Monday and more than 25,000 fans came to Camp Nou to welcome the Blaugrana legend’s return.

The ex-midfielder is

Ronald Koeman

’s successor and is handed a challenging job as Barca sit ninth in the La Liga table.

Xavi’s return as a manager has come as a boost to almost everyone at Barca, but there is an elephant in the room, which is because Xavi was a figurehead in the Font’s presidential campaign.

Victor Font

promised to appoint Xavi if he won the presidential role but

Joan Laporta

was voted to be the president.

Xavi has now been appointed by Laporta, but Font is happy than the president has come to his senses.

Finally, the club has seen this as the best solution,”

he told Sport.

“Yesterday was an exciting day. Xavi will take things forward because he knows how to work and has clear ideas.

“It’s an active club. I celebrate more now because the one who governs the club agrees with what we thought.

“In the first game, we will see changes. I have had conversations about football with him and it’s a delight to listen to him.”
