Xavi hints injured stars could return for El Clasico

Barcelona coach Xavi announced Friday that his contract extension with the Spanish champions had been confirmed and will be made official shortly.

The former Barca midfielder, who took over as coach in 2021, will extend his contract by one season until 2025.

The former Al Sadd manager  led the club to their first La Liga title since 2019 and the Spanish Super Cup last season.

“We arrived at a difficult time, in unfavourable circumstances,” Xavi told a press conference ahead of Saturday’s game against Celta Vigo.

“Last year we won two important titles. We’re in a process of transition.”

Xavi said Barca had just achieved “their two best matches” since he took over, with 5-0 wins against both Real Betis in La Liga and Royal Antwerp in the Champions League group stage.
