Xavi Hernandez spoke out about his future return to Barcelona this week. In an interview with El Pais the legend spoke about the timing in his inevitable return to his club

“I don’t believe now is the right moment to return. There’s a lot of noise outside of the club, non-sporting issues.. I don’t think now is the time. I told them that in January and they haven’t contacted me since.

“As a culé, I wish them the best. I have a lot of respect for Quique Setien and he loves to play football the way Barça need to. It’s ‘Cruyffismo’. Another factor is whether the results come with that.”

Gotta agree with Xavi on this one. Glad to hear that despite the dollar signs and potential of future glory he’s remained level-headed about the state of the club. You don’t want to mess up your return to the club that you were a legend at, timing is essential.
