Carlo Ancelotti: Barcelona Sacking ‘Good for Xavi’

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has weighed in on the recent sacking of Xavi from Barcelona, stating that it is part of the job for a coach to be dismissed. Xavi, who initially intended to leave his position at the end of the season, was relieved of his duties despite a change of heart. Ancelotti believes that the separation may ultimately benefit both Xavi and Barcelona.

Xavi, who returned to Barcelona in 2021, managed to secure a second-place finish in La Liga before winning the title the following year. Despite a strong performance in the 2023/24 season, Barcelona failed to secure any silverware and ultimately parted ways with Xavi.

Ancelotti’s comments come ahead of Madrid’s Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, where he shared his thoughts on Xavi’s dismissal. The Italian manager highlighted the importance of a good relationship between the club and the coach, suggesting that the separation may be beneficial in the long run.

As Xavi’s successor, Hansi Flick has been appointed as the new head coach of Barcelona. The decision marks the end of an era for Xavi at the club, with both parties now looking towards the future.
