Barcelona appear to have decided on their interim coach following the sacking of Ronald Koeman.
The focus now turns to Koeman’s replacement, and all signs currently point to former midfielder Xavi Hernandez.
If it is to be Xavi, then the process could move quickly, but not as quickly as Barcelona’s schedule.
The Blaugrana will need to strike a deal with Xavi’s club Al-Sadd, and in the meantime, they have a clash with Alaves this weekend before facing Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League.
It’s claimed Albert Capellas, a former assistant of Jordi Cruyff’s in China, will take over for now.
Capellas is also a former Barcelona B team coach and Borussia Dortmund assistant, and he has been working within La Masia of late.
He is now expected to take first team duties until a permanent replacement is appointed.
