has been appointed as the club’s new head coach to replace Barca’s former and recently sacked boss, Ronald Koeman.
Having won only one of their last five La Liga matches, the Blaugrana have experienced one of their worst starts to a new season and are currently standing 9
in the league table. However,Real Madrid
boss Carlo Ancelotti believes the Catalans can regain their best form under their new manager, Xavi.
"Obviously I don't want to talk about Barcelona. I know they're in a tough situation, and I've said that on more than one occasion because I have a lot of respect for them as a club, and I respect Xavi as well,"
"I wish him the best because I can't say anything personally if Barca have any issues or not, but they have more than enough quality to get out of this tough situation."
The Italian added:
"It's a surprise that we're 10 points clear of Barcelona, but I think Barcelona can very easily get back into the title race because the season is very long.
"And as I said, this is a very competitive league. You don't need 100 points to win this division. You need many less because it's that competitive."
