Xavi Hernández bids farewell to Barcelona, citing undervaluation of his work and challenges of the job

Posted : 30 January 2024

Outgoing Barcelona coach Xavi Hernández expressed his belief that his work at the club has been undervalued, stating that the job is "cruel and unpleasant" and makes one feel "worthless on a daily basis."


Despite leading Barcelona to a LaLiga title last season, Xavi announced his departure after a recent string of disappointing results. He emphasized the high level of demand and constant pressure, noting that whatever he does, there is criticism. Xavi, who spent 17 years as a player at Barcelona, indicated that he doesn't feel his work will ever be sufficiently valued, leading him to the decision to leave.


Xavi acknowledged the support he received from Barcelona's president, Joan Laporta, expressing gratitude for the opportunity and confidence shown in him. He believes the same challenges and criticisms will confront his successor, advising them to be themselves and not allow external influences.


While Xavi is leaving the coaching role, he hasn't ruled out returning to the club in the future, emphasizing his connection as a "club man" willing to contribute when needed. Despite the difficulties, Xavi aims to finish on a positive note, hoping his departure announcement can spark a positive reaction from the team.


Barcelona's recent struggles, including losses to Girona, Real Madrid, Athletic Club, and Villarreal, contributed to increased pressure on Xavi. The team is currently 11 points behind league leaders Girona and faces Napoli in the Champions League round of 16.


 Xavi hopes that his decision to step down will motivate the players to perform well in the remaining fixtures, emphasizing the importance of finishing the season on a positive note and expressing his determination to give more for the team.
