AL-SAAD RESPONDS TO XAVI LINKS
“In response to what’s circulating recently, the Al-Saad management reaffirms that Xavi has a two-year contract with the club and is fully focused on the team’s upcoming matches, to maintain our lead at the top of the league and to defend the title.”
– read the tweet by the club.
Xavi has been impressive at Al Sadd in the role of a manager. He took over as the manager of the Doha based club in 2019 after retiring as a player at the same club. Ever since taking over the reign, Xavi has been very successful.
Currently, his side has won all 8 of their match in the Qatar Stars League as Al-Saad is looking forward to defending the title. Amidst this, the lure of Barcelona could surely tempt Xavi. The 41-year-old was a La Masia product who went on to be part of one of the most dominant sides in Club football.
Barcelona reports being in talks with Xavi over a possible return. Barcelona is currently in discussion with Al Sadd to release the manager. Though they released a statement it is believed that Xavi could leave Al Sadd in the coming days.
