After Barcelona were relegated from the Europa League, a press release revealed the first reaction of Juan Laporta, the president of the Catalan club, and his stance on Xavi staying with the team for the coming period.
Barça have said goodbye to the 2022/23 European Championship after a serious two-to-one loss to Manchester United in the second leg of the round of 16.
The first leg, which took place at the Camp Nou, ended in a positive draw with two goals each, giving United a 4-3 win on aggregate.
Xavi’s future at the Catalan club depends on the titles he wins with the team despite being an important part of the club’s future project.
Xavi has so far managed to achieve a single championship with the Catalan club, that is, the Spanish Super Cup at the expense of Real Madrid.
The president of Barcelona surprised Xavi after being excluded from the Europa League!
I would like the journalist “Javi Miguel” not to become Xavi and Laporta, on the way back today they were talking about exclusion yesterday.
The source confirmed that the coach was desperate for an early exit, but said, “Now we have the feeling that we’re competing and that we’re really close.”
And a source said that Juan Laporta, the president of the club, confirmed during a conversation with Xavi that the team needs a lot of reinforcements next season.
Barcelona are working on signing many contracts next summer, especially after they were unable to enter the Mercato contract race last winter due to financial fair play restrictions imposed by the Spanish League.
