Xavi Finally Presented As Barcelona Boss

Xavi Hernandez was introduced as Barcelona‘s new head coach in front of thousands of fans at the Nou Camp on Monday.

On the pitch, with club president Joan Laporta, the 41-year-old Barcelona legend signed his contract, which runs until 2024.

“It’s a historical day for Barcelona. Welcome, Xavi,” an emotional Laporta told the club’s supporters during the ceremony where the ex-midfielder was accompanied by his family.

Xavi joined after Barca paid his release clause with Qatari club Al Sadd. He will replace the sacked Ronald Koeman.

“Thank you all. I don’t want to get emotional but I am, I feel goosebumps,” Xavi told the fans.

“This is the biggest club in the world and I’m going to work hard to reach your expectations. Barcelona can’t accept a draw or a defeat. We have to win all the games.

“I come prepared. My DNA didn’t change. We need to take charge, have the ball, create opportunities, be intense. We have a mission to rescue many things that were lost,” Xavi said.
