Barcelona could make ANOTHER Xavi U-turn, with ‘president Joan Laporta urged to FIRE their manager after board members angered by his comments’

Xavi’s future at Barcelona has been thrown into further chaos after the Catalan manager angered board members with his recent comments about the club’s economic situation, according to reports.

His managerial career at the club where he achieved legendary player status was never easy after Xavi returned to take charge at a time when Barcelona’s finances appeared to be in shambles.

The World Cup winner has been plagued by talk of leaving since arriving at the Camp Nou dugout in 2021, and later appeared set to leave at the end of the season before making an about-face on her decision.

Club president Joan Laporta was desperate for Xavi to reverse his earlier decision to leave Barcelona and ended up getting his wish last month in a sudden reversal.

However, they are now considering severing ties permanently following the head coach’s press briefing on Barcelona’s finances and potential summer recruitment ahead of their La Liga match against Almeria.

Xavi said at the time: “Culé must understand that the situation is very complicated to be economically competitive.

“It’s nothing like what we had 25 years ago, when the coach would come and say, ‘I want this one, this one and this one.’ It doesn’t work like that anymore.

“I understand that and that’s how we’re going to adapt to it. That doesn’t mean we won’t be competitive. We need stability and time. There are good things to compete for. The situation we find ourselves in is the situation we find ourselves in in terms of results.

“Last year we were solvent without playing the football we would like to play and this year we played better, but with worse results,” he added.

Xavi then tried to clarify his previous comments, adding: “I said what I think, the economic situation is not the best and we are all working very well to improve the situation. “We will fight to get titles , nothing changes.

Barcelona bosses are said to be furious over his public rant about the club’s financial situation ahead of the conclusion of the Spanish top-flight season, as reported CAR1.

President Laporta was so outraged by the media statement made by his team boss that he is now considering terminating Xavi’s contract, which would mean a late scramble to find a replacement before the transfer window opens.

Last season’s La Liga champions are relying heavily on their trophies to generate funds for new signings after having to sell their broadcast and image rights as they battled an economic crisis.

However, performances haven’t been good enough this season, with Xavi and his team of superstars set to end the campaign without any silverware.
