Barcelona boss Xavi under pressure to finish second or face exit still



Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez is under pressure to finish high as the club enter the final stretch of the La Liga season.

Despite assurances from Xavi and President Joan Laporta, reports suggest that Xavi’s position could still be in jeopardy if Barcelona fail to secure at least second place.

Following a 4-2 defeat to Girona, Xavi stated that his future wouldn’t be influenced by the result or the team’s performance in the remainder of the season.

However, failure to secure second place could plunge Barcelona into crisis, with Xavi’s tenure no longer guaranteed.

The potential consequences of finishing third extend beyond sacking the club’s legend, as Barcelona may contemplate a major overhaul of the squad.

Players like Ronald Araujo, Frenkie de Jong, and Robert Lewandowski, already face uncertainty about their future with the club.

Other key players like Pedri, also find themselves subject to transfer speculation, according to Football Espana.

The looming threat of finishing third has prompted Barcelona to postpone major decisions until the end of the season.
