Normally, changing a coach should be a very solemn matter for a team, usually without wavering. However, reality is often more magical than fiction, as evidenced by the saga of Barcelona's handling of the dismissal of coach Xavi. There were a total of three reversals in decision-making, making it a rare spectacle in the football world.

Due to poor team performance, halfway through the season, Xavi reached an agreement with Barcelona to end his coaching tenure at the end of the season. But who would have thought that after the decision to change coaches at the end of the season was confirmed, Barcelona's performance actually improved. They eventually finished second in the league with 79 points after 36 rounds, and successfully reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League. This was undoubtedly a better result than expected for Barcelona, which is currently in a rebuilding phase.

With the improvement in performance, Barcelona's officials persuaded Xavi to stay, and Harvey was also moved by the sincerity of the officials. Subsequently, the two parties reached an agreement, and it was announced that Xavi would stay with the team. However, the good times didn't last long, and this cooperation quickly fell apart. After Xavi announced that he would stay, his outspoken nature surfaced multiple times in front of the media. He believed that the team was currently not performing well, the financial situation was poor, and they couldn't provide the desired reinforcements for the head coach. As a result, fans should lower their expectations. However, these remarks angered the Barcelona leadership, led by Laporta. Over the years, Laporta's slogan as a leader has been to improve Barcelona's financial situation, and Xavi's words undoubtedly contradicted this. For Laporta, who is about to run for the next president of Barcelona, Xavi's words were unacceptable, and he was subsequently dismissed.

In fact, this incident also indirectly reflects the current chaotic situation at Barcelona. Perhaps it will be a long time before we see the return of the dominant red and blue army. Do you think Barcelona has the ability to return to the top in the short term?

Sometimes, speaking out boldly isn't a good idea. After all, it depends on who the leaders are and whether one has the ability to do so.

Feels like watching a drama, all the focus is on him, with occasional big twists.

The anger shouldn't be directed solely at Xavi, but also at Messi. Why did Neymar and Suarez leave after winning the quintuple in 2015? What has Messi brought to Barça in recent years? With a €50 million annual salary, what example does he set for the younger players? Plus, veterans like Pique and Busquets earning €10 million each, Barça is being bled dry. So when these players left, who would want to keep them? Laporta's approach is correct. Barça's finances have been struggling, drained by these players. He spoke the truth that there's no money for signings. Can't even speak the truth now? I think Laporta and Xavi shouldn't quarrel. Barça reached the quarterfinals this year and finished second in the league. Focusing on youth development is crucial. Laporta should trust Xavi, a midfield maestro with two Euros and a World Cup, to guide the team. He knows how to run the team and what each position needs. Don't be blinded by the opportunists around.

The internal conflict within Barcelona is intense, mainly due to their financial struggles. Otherwise, Xavi would probably have been fired long ago. Laporta, the president, has a politician's style. On one hand, Xavi, as a club legend and the coach who led the team to win La Liga last season, still holds value for Laporta. Despite the team's mediocre performance this season, retaining Xavi saves expenses for the club. On the other hand, Laporta created the position of sporting director for another club legend, Deco, to serve as a counterbalance to Xavi. Why doesn't Xavi use the Brazilian youngster Roque, whom the club spent a fortune to acquire? It's because Roque was a player Deco insisted on bringing in. Xavi's reluctance to use him isn't because Roca lacks ability, but rather because Xavi doesn't want to be seen as using players brought in by others, which would undermine his authority as head coach. Barcelona's internal conflicts have led to situations where the club spends large sums of money on players that the coach doesn't want, while lacking funds for players the coach desires. This has prompted Xavi to criticize Barcelona's financial problems openly. Indeed, Barcelona's decision to pay a high price for Roque was questionable. Xavi's criticism is justified, as the club currently doesn't need a player like Roque, but rather a striker or a midfielder. It's an uncomfortable truth, and speaking honestly has made Xavi a target. I doubt Xavi will stay for long. Perhaps Laporta needs a more compliant head coach, as he can't tolerate Xavi's outspokenness.
