I asked him if there was any way he could change his mind, but I saw him with insurmountable pressure showing on his face, so I told him to relax if he saw it like that. »

Turnaround coming?

The Barça leader is more open than ever to the idea of ​​Xavi still being the coach of his team next season. “He keeps saying that at the end of the season he will leave as we agreed, but we will see.
