I cant remember how many times in the past i said Xavi isnt ready to be Barcelona coach / manager simply because he is coaching / managing in Qatar.
The team he was in charge of was like Barca B playing against teams in 4th or 5th division in Spain or France, no competition at all and yet a few good results, silverware and the way the club plays made everyone think he is the one to lead this club forward.
He refused to coach the actual Barca B team and wanted to immediately take over the first team and yet he is unable to do what needs to be done. Pep was with Barca B and the first thing he did when took over the first team was selling R10 and Deco because of their influence on the young players and are no longer able to perform at the highest level. Yet Xavi is unable to do so with certain players whom the entire world knows that they cannot perform at the required level.
Unless Xavi grows some big balls and benches those players "Pique / Busquets / Alba (out injured) and Sergi Roberto (also injured", this team will not go forward since the other players will be covering for the above mentioned ones.
This team have the players to replace the above but my guts tells me that Xavi is unable to bench them due to the past history with them.
Anyways, i hope one day he does the right thing for this club and move them on like Pep did when he took over.
