Guardiola takes over from Xavi and attends his presentation




All the parallels are served and the Barcelona fans have recovered their illusion as soon as the club hired Xavi Hernandez to straighten the team’s sporting course, sunk in the standings, eleven points behind the leader and six places that give access to play the Champions League. The culé sees in Xavi the successor of Pep Guardiola, who also took over the reins of the team in 2008, when the situation was similar and in his first season he managed to conquer the historic treble and laid the foundations for the best Barça in history. Precisely, Pep Guardiola has blessed the arrival of Xavi. He has even been in the great presentation that the Catalan club has prepared for him. Keep in mind that the City manager participated this morning, along with Joan Laporta, in the charity tournament ‘My first match’, promoted by Juan Carlos Unzue to raise funds to investigate and combat the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (THE A). The meeting was held at the Sant Cugat Golf Club and Txiki Begiristain, Nadal, Amor, Ferrer, Txema Corbella and Gerard López, among others, also participated. The profits from the tournament will go to the Miquel Valls Foundation.

Taking advantage of his presence in Barcelona, ​​Guardiola also wanted to be present at Xavi’s presentation, thus showing his unconditional support to Terrassa and accepting the decision of the club. This past week, Pep already appreciated the arrival of Xavi. «I have not spoken with Xavi these days. I’d like to wait for it to be official, but if the deal is finally closed, my best wishes to him. I’m sure he will do a great job», He assured when they asked him. Remember that the relationship between the two was always magnificent. They already coincided as footballers under Van Gaal and later with Pep as coach of the first team. At that time, the midfielder was not going through a good time and doubted his continuity in the team, since rumors had reached him that the club wanted to transfer him. “I can’t imagine the team without you”Guardiola assured him in the first conversation they had. And then Xavi stopped worrying to lead the team to win the League, the Cup and the Champions League.

Xavi is now expected to emulate Guardiola’s best times, with a fun and offensive game, in which the style is marked. Xavi likes to play with a 4-3-3, with open ends that they open up the field and that they free the flanks from carrying the offensive weight. He also likes to pamper the ball, a clean exit of the ball from behind, have possession, press in the upper zone and propose with the ball.
