Xavi: “I had an offer to coach Barcelona but it wasn’t the right time.”

Speaking to former teammate Samuel Eto’o on Instagram, Xavi Hernández revealed that he turned down the chance to manage his former club Barcelona in January.

January wasn’t the right time. I had conversations with Eric Abidal and Oscar Grau and a big offer, but it wasn’t the right moment. I need a bit more experience. Coaching Barcelona is my dream. I’d like to do it someday, I’ve said that many times.

Xavi is currently head coach of Al Sadd in Qatar.
