Barcelona players hopeful Xavi might stay as manager in 2024/25

According to Relevo, there is a growing number of players who believe that Xavi might stay at Barcelona for the coming season. The Spaniard shockingly announced thate he would be leaving in June, owing to the lack of results and the immense pressure on his shoulders.

He has been asked whether there is a chance to stay time and time again at press conferences, but has insisted that he intends to leave. The recent development suggests that a number of Barcelona players think he will stay next season. One of the main reasons behind it is the fact that he has appeared more at ease, perhaps due to the relieving of the pressure.

The former midfielder was able to lead the side to the LaLiga title last season, and has been in contention this term as well. He has led the team into the quarter finals of the Champions League, and has remarkably dealt with an injury crisis and financial constraints that have paralysed the first team.

Xavi has also forged a strong relationship of trust with La Masia players, giving youngsters such as Gavi, Pau Curbasi, Lamine Yamal, Alejandro Balde and Fermin Lopez a run out in the first team. As a result, his departure would be a huge blow to the structure of the team.

But it’ll also be a loss of face if Xavi goes back on his word and now ends up staying in spite of repeatedly asserting that he won’t continue.
