Sergi Barjuan is the new Barcelona interim coach



Sergi Barjuan is the new Barcelona interim coach. Joan Laporta will introduce Sergi to the team today..

Sergi Barjuán, current Barcelona B coach, is appointed as the interim coach of the first team until the hiring of the new coach is finalised.

The Spaniard has been with Barcelona for just three months, and has taken charge of 5 Barca B games, suggesting that he will not be in charge for too long.

That man is none other than former Barcelona great Xavi Hernandez, who currently manages Al-Sadd in the Qatari League. One of the greatest midfielders of his generation, Xavi appeared 767 times for the Catalan club, where he spent 20 years of his career.

He renewed his contract with Al-Sadd earlier in the year, but allegedly has a release clause should Barca come calling. And they have. As per Ben Jacobs, this will not sour the relationship between the Qatar outfit and Xavi, who had been agreement that should the opportunity arise, he could depart.
