I’m Leaving Barca With ‘Clear Conscience’ – Xavi

0 274

Sacked Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez said Saturday he was leaving the club with a “clear conscience”.
President Joan Laporta took the decision to remove the former midfield great on Friday, mere weeks after saying he was delighted Xavi was staying for the final year of his contract.

In January the coach said he would leave at the end of the season but after a surge in form in April he and Laporta announced that he would remain in charge next season.
Despite media reports saying Laporta had decided to sack Xavi over the past fortnight, the coach insisted he was looking forward to next season and had heard nothing from the board, until the axe finally dropped.

“I’m doing OK, it’s not been easy, it’s been a tricky time,” Xavi told a news conference ahead of his final match at the helm, against Sevilla on Sunday in La Liga.
