The arrival of Xavi to take over the training of the first football team in Barcelona brought a glimmer of hope to all the Catalan fans, after most of the dreams of Barca fans had been scattered due to the low level that the team appeared at under the leadership of former coach Ronald Koeman.
The situation became more complicated for Barca supporters after the free departure of the Argentine flea Lionel Messi to the Paris Saint-Germain team in the last summer Mercato due to the difficult financial situation left by the former Blaugrana president.
In this context, the legend of Real Madrid and Barcelona, Luis Figo, spoke to the Spanish newspaper “Marca”, who commented in the dialogue he had with him on the situation the Catalan administration is going through at this crucial stage.
Figo explained to the Spanish newspaper: Xavi is facing a difficult task, as he arrived at the club in a very critical period, and demands to get the team back on the right track in terms of performance and results.
The Portuguese added: “There is an improvement in the game, but football is something else.”
The former international player continued, “A lot of excitement has emerged with the arrival of Xavi and we will see how far he can go.”
Yesterday, Xavi fell into the trap of a draw in his second match with Barcelona against Benfica, and the Catalan team had to win away to Bayern Munich to qualify.
It is reported that Luis Figo played for Barcelona for 5 years (1995-2000) before moving to the traditional rivals Real Madrid from the back door in 2000 and leaving after 5 years.
