Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font has slammed the club’s pursuit of Xavi this past week.
With Ernesto Valverde still in place, Barca management have held talks with former captain Xavi about leaving Al Sadd and succeeding their head coach. For the moment, word is Xavi has turned down the approach and Font has been left unimpressed by how the entire situation has been handled.
He took to Twitter to post: “Xavi is a member of Barça and for sure he will train the first team one day. We saw the offer he received as confirmation of a destiny that is written and for which we have been working on for years.
“However, the events of the past few days are also definitive proof of the lack of project and planning in this direction. A flight forward without any respect for the career of the professionals involved and the institution. A dismal episode.”
