Bojan reckons that Xavi and Barcelona are “destined for each other” and thinks it’s inevitable the club legend will return to the Camp Nou “sooner or later.”

Xavi turned down the chance to replace Ernesto Valverde as manager at the start of the year but has made it clear he would love to coach the club at some point.

Bojan feels Barcelona needs people like Xavi around the place because of his unique knowledge of the club.

“Xavi is a person who sooner or later has to be part of the club,” he said. “I like when people who came through the club end up at Barca and Xavi is one of them.

“Few are better than him as he knows the place, knows the dressing room – few people will be able to experience it like him. I think both Barcelona and Xavi are destined for each other.”

It’s difficult to argue with Bojan’s words but Xavi will have to wait to return. Barca have placed their trust in Quique Setien for now and he is contracted untl June 2022.
