Barcelona: You don’t have to be my heir – Guardiola sends message to Xavi

Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has urged Barcelona’s new manager, Xavi Hernandez, that he doesn’t have to be his heir at Camp Nou.

Guardiola coached Xavi during his time at Barcelona.

Xavi was officially unveiled as Barcelona’s new manager on Monday following the sacking of Ronald Koeman.

But Guardiola believes Xavi will improve Barcelona’s situation with his class, dedication and effort.

“I wasn’t the heir to anybody and Xavi doesn’t have to be my heir,” Guardiola said at a charity golf tournament held to raise funds for Juan Carlos Unzue’s fight against ALS.

“If Joan Laporta and the board have chosen Xavi, then it’s because there are millions of pros and few cons.

“He knows the club and will bring positive energy, given how he enjoys football and because of his dedication. He always sees the positive side of things.

“With his class, dedication and effort, I’m sure he’ll improve the club’s situation.”
