Xavi makes dramatic U-turn to remain as Barcelona manager, Barcelona vice president Rafa Yuste confirms Xavi's decision to stay

Good news for Barcelona. Xavi Hernandez has made a sudden U-turn. After deciding to quit Barcelona as manager after the current season, he has now agreed to extend his stay with Cules. After a discussion with club president Juan Laporta, Xavi has now agreed to reverse his decision.

Earlier in the season, the former Barca player and now manager decided to leave Camp Nou. Despite having a year left on his contract, he was ready to leave the team after a string of poor performances. But since then the Spanish giants have turned the tide and have performed well.

Back in January, Xavi claimed that a change in direction was needed. “You often feel there is lack of respect, you feel that your work is not appreciated,” Xavi said earlier this year.

Barcelona Vice President Confirms Xavi’s U-turn

“We had a meeting with the coach and the president in which Xavi showed us his commitment. He is a Barça guy, he is the coach who can lead our project and our young players from the club. I am convinced that he will do a great job, I am very happy for him because he is a great ‘culé.’,” Barcelona vice-president, Rafa Yuste said.

“I am happy [with Xavi staying] because I always defended the continuity of the project he started two-and-a-half years ago. We have not talked [in the meeting] about changes in our team at all. Xavi has shown his enthusiasm and we must support him and his staff to continue with this project,” Yuste added.
