Xavi or Ronald Koeman? Barcelona supporters split on who should lead them forward

The immediate future of Barcelona comes down to a clear choice according to a report in Marca. Xavi or Ronald Koeman? A survey taken after Barcelona’s 4-1 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League this past week has shown that there’s almost a perfectly even split between the supporters regarding their desire to continue with Koeman (44%) or switch to Xavi (45%).

Koeman has earned respect during his stint in Catalonia, taking tough decisions that position him well in terms of being able to continue with his project. The Dutchman has used youngsters well, building toward a brighter future, and many feel that he’s earned the chance to see through this transition period and recruit some of his own men to put his stamp on the team.

Ronald Koeman

Xavi, of course, is a name that’s been mentioned prolifically. Many Barcelona fans dream of a visionary like Pep Guardiola to lead the club in a post-Lionel Messi era, and see Xavi as the perfect candidate. The former midfielder has been coaching in Qatar ever since he retired, and is four years older than Guardiola was when he took over the Barcelona first team in 2008.

  1. how whom can not promote evaton he lead barca? club is not national team. we need xavi then any manager

  2. The problem of barca, isn’t Manager, but the team needs to be renewed, in terms of the players on the key positions like, streker, center midfielders and all back line. Even Guardiola, can’t win any trophy with current team.

  3. Your grammar is very poor. You need an education. Xavi has left more of a mark on Barca than Koeman, so the players may be more motivated to play for him. But a great coach has tactics and the ability to motivate the players. It should be interesting to see how this unfolds. .

  4. Xavi is the best coach to take Barcelona to glory days not the current one he does’nt confidence and ability to motivate the players.

  5. I agree with you the problem is the the manager.
    Barcelona need to rebuild .
    And the best way is by adding agile and technical players
