  • “We do not want to put pressure on ourselves, the rush is bad advisers. Xavi is an option, but he is not the only one,” says Yuste

Minutes before Sergi Barjuan made his debut on the Camp Nou bench, Xavi He played this Saturday what could be his penultimate match in Qatar. A new and resounding victory against Al Ahli (4-1) that allows Al Sadd to remain undefeated and a leader in their league. Ruled out that it could be in Kiev, the objective was for it to arrive in time to premiere in Vigo. Although from his current team and his old-future club they have launched messages that called for prudence in the last hours. Since Doha, the Barcelona myth has proven that, without Koeman, the team’s ills do not subside.

“We don’t want to put pressure on ourselves, rush is bad counselor. Xavi is an option, but he is not the only one. Xavi is one of the possible ones, but not the only one. Barça is working on several options. Working, working, working in the future “, Rafa Yuste said before Barça-Alavés” We set no guidelines, no deadlines for the new coach, “he added on the Movistar microphones. «Put us timings It would just add more pressure to us and could complicate the negotiations. ‘

“Putting on ‘timmings’ would only add more pressure and could complicate the negotiations.”

Rafa Yuste (Barça sports vice president)

The message from the Barça vice president of sports came hours after the warning for sailors who have launched from Al Sadd. “Xavi has a two-year contract with the club and he is fully focused on the team’s next matches to maintain our leadership in the league and defend the title,” said the Qatari club through social media. The club faces Al Duhail, second placed and the great rival of Xavi’s team, this Wednesday.

Agüero leaves by ambulance

From Doha he saw how, whenever it is, a lot of work awaits him on his return to the Camp Nou. The output of Ronald Koeman it did not generate a revulsive effect in the first half and the team showed the same evils that had condemned the Dutch coach: for the seventh consecutive game Ter Stegen he fit in the first shot at the opponent’s sticks; the plague of physical problems does not remit: Sergi Roberto, Kun Agüero (who left Camp Nou in an ambulance) and Piqué on Saturday they joined an infirmary that was almost more crowded this year than the stands (against Alavés, only 37,278 spectators, less than against Bayern Munich when there was a 40% capacity restriction).

And, without overflow or spark, the team has a hard time shooting at the door and it helps. Only in isolated plays, such as the goal that was taken from outside the Memphis area or the two occasions that he scored after a slalom from Gavi and an assist in Vaseline from Nico. Two rough diamonds to which Xavi will be able to transmit his experience as an interior. Just like a Riqui Puig, who wears his number 6, and who was applauded upon entering to have the first minutes this season without Koeman’s veto.

Hopefully better runs will come,” said Alba, who believes that Sergi and Koeman are “different coaches but the idea is the same.”

“The feeling is bitter. We must recover mentally and physically, so that the players see that we are on the right track & rdquor ;, explained Sergi after his debut.” That the new coach takes more or less to arrive does not condition my work. If I get to Tuesday we will propose the solutions to win, trying to revive them, they are very good and they have to believe in themselves. ”
