The former midfielder returns to his first-ever club in a time of crisis. All of the big stars from Barcelona’s past have either departed for pastures new or are, in the case of Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets, past their best and in need of replacing.
Barca’s awful recruitment over the last five or six years has also left them with a fairly poor squad that can only really be saved if someone is able to get the best of the latest batch of La Masia graduates like Ansu Fati and Pedri.
Xavi reveals what Messi did
And at the moment, there seems like no better man for the job than Xavi.
Xavi came from the La Masia academy around the same time as fellow Barcelona legends like Andreas Iniesta and Lionel Messi.
The trio went on to play countless ties together and took Barcelona to the very top of world football.
Messi has, of course, since departed the club for PSG, but during his unavailing day as Barcelona boss, Xavi revealed that Messi text his former teammate to wish him luck:
“Leo Messi texted me to wish the best of luck. He’s incredible but he’s not here as Eto’o or Ronaldinho… we’ve to think about the future, not about players who’re no longer here at Barça”.
