Despite all the hullabaloo, Xavi will have his work cut out as FC Barcelona manager. The Blaugrana are currently in ninth position in the La Liga points table. The Cules are 11 points behind the league leaders Real Sociedad. While it will be a tough task for Xavi, he will have a roster filled with La Masia with most of them looking up to him.
Firstly he would like to get them to the knockouts of the Champions League and then look towards building momentum in the La Liga. Although there is a huge point gap in the league, teams above them are bound to drop points in the upcoming matches.

Xavi will get little to no support financially to bring in reinforcements as the club are going through financial turmoil. Therefore he will have to put his trust in the La Masia graduates, a move that can turn the fortune for the Blaugrana in the coming months.
