Al-Sadd coach Xavi Hernandez claims that he wants to coach Barca and want to sign wingers like Neymar, Sancho and Gnabry.
“I want to return to Barca, but to start a project from scratch.” said Xavi in an interview with La Vanguardia.
“For this current Barca, I would sign wingers. Players similar to Neymar, Sancho, Gnabry…
And then there’s also Suarez, De Jong and Arthur. For me, they seem footballers who can help Barça win for another 10 years. The base is very good.
“Barça’s squad is very good. Ter Stegen, the best goalkeeper in the world. Alba, for me the best left-back in the world. Piqué the best centre-back, Busquets the best defensive midfielder and Messi, the best player in the world.
“Now that I have seen myself training players, I think I can contribute things. But I made it clear to Barça that I was seeing myself in a project in which decision-making was mine.
“I would like to work together with people in whom I have confidence, with whom there is loyalty. There cannot be anyone toxic near the dressing room. Think about Carles Puyol, Jordi Cruyff…
“I don’t have a bad relationship with Bartomeu, I get along well with Joan Laporta and I’m friends with Víctor Font.” said Xavi.
