Xavi tests positive for the coronavirus

Barcelona and Spain legend Xavi said he tested positive for the coronavirus. The 40-year-old, currently the manager of the Qatar Stars League side, Al Sadd, said on Instagram that he was not experiencing symptoms but would self-destruct until he recovered. Al Sadd is due to play Al Khor on Saturday, and the Qatari top division will return after four months of Covid-19 suspension. Xavi announced: “Today, I will not be able to accompany my team back to the official competition. David Prats, a reserve coach, will take my place as a technical team leader. A few days ago, following the QSL protocol, I tested positive in my last test for Covid-19. Fortunately, I feel great, but following the contract, I will remain isolated until I overcome it when medical authorities allow it. I’ll get back to my daily routine and work as hard as ever.

Spain’s legend says that his greatest hope is to be the Barca coach

“I thank all the authorities, especially those that allowed us early detection tools that allow us to avoid a greater spread of the virus and guarantee the normal continuation of the season. A Hug and see you soon on the football field! Xavi has been in charge of Al Sadd since May 2019, leading them to the semi-finals of last year’s AFC Champions League. He had previously spent at the club in the final four years of his playing career. He joined 2015, leaving Barcelona after their stunning winning season in 2014-15. In July, Xavi signed a one-year contract, but in the future, he is still expected to take over as Barça manager. Last month he told reporters: “My greatest hope right now is to be the Barça coach and bring Barça back to winning ways.”

“Our technical staff prepares a lot for this, and it makes us excited. I’m a club man. I want to come back at the right moment to start the project from scratch. I have said this many times, but I want to make football decisions at Barcelona. It is clear that after the elections, the stage would be set, of course. They came to me in January. We talked about it. I told them the circumstances and the timing were wrong.
