Keeping The Ship Steady Despite Early Storms

Barça were chagrined earlier this season for their form and, more importantly, their UCL group stage exit for the second season in a row. As huge as that disappointment was, Barcelona have been able to move on and mount a truly worth title challenge in La Liga.

It might not sound like much to many Barça fans, but with the form, efficiency and consistency that Barça have shown in La Liga this season, Xavi deserves more flowers.

Being a young coach who hasn’t had any experience in Europe, he has managed to keep his squad motivated week in week out to at least secure the La Liga title and maybe also challenge for the Europa League. A league form that has seen them concede just 7 goals, while averaging 2.01 goals scored every game, is incredibly impressive. Xavi has also revitalized Ousmane Dembélé and continues to provide the right space and winning environment for Pedri and Gavi to continue developing.

There are still some doubts on if Xavi will continue at Barcelona for many years, but even if he doesn’t, future Barcelona bosses will be grateful for what the former Spanish midfielder has been able to produce given his resources.
