Always at Barcelona’s disposal: Xavi sends a message after the club’s abrupt dismissal

Xavi published a lengthy message on his official Instagram account after being fired by Barcelona on Friday, May 24. Xavi, who delivered the LaLiga title to Barca last season, was unceremoniously sacked as the club endured a season of turmoil. It was reported that the Barça board was not happy with his comments about the club’s financial situation.

Xavi wrote a long note to the club’s fans after his dismissal. The Spaniard was happy with his time as the club’s coach and thanked the fans for their support. Xavi stated that from May 26 he will be another fan of the club and he always has been one even before being a player or coach. Xavi stated that he will always be at the club’s disposal in the future.

Xavi finished his message by wishing the club all the best.

“Dear culés, on Sunday my time on the Barça bench ends. It is never easy to leave the club of your life, but I am very proud, after two and a half years at the helm of a dressing room that has been like a second family.

I want to thank the fans for their support and affection, who have always been by my side and have shown me at all times the same appreciation as in my time as a footballer. Starting Sunday I will be another culé in the stands, whether now. at the Estadi Olmpic or in a few months at the Camp Nou. Because before being a player or coach, I am a Barcelona fan and I only want the best for the club of my life, which will always have me at its disposal.

I have worked with a group of fantastic players and a spectacular staff. Thanks to all of them we have been achieving the objectives set, culminating last year with a League and a Super Cup. This season things have not gone as we wanted, but we have gone further and helped a new generation of young La Masia footballers grow who excite all of us Barcelona fans.

Thank you very much to all. To the fans, the players, the staff, the club employees, the President, the Board of Directors, the sports directors, the media and everyone with whom I have shared a trip throughout these two seasons and a half. I wish the best in the club that I appreciate very much,” said Xavi.

Xavi’s last months at Barcelona

Xavi had initially announced in January that he would leave the club at the end of the season. After a couple of months, Barça was able to pursue the former midfielder to change his mind and extend his stay at the club.

However, he will leave Barça starting Sunday, May 26 after their match against Sevilla.
