Lionel Messi expecting big things from Xavi as Barcelona manager

    Lionel Messi is looking forward to seeing what former team-mate Xavi can do in the dugout at Camp Nou.

    Xavi took control of Barcelona earlier this month after Ronald Koeman was relieved of his duties, with the ex-midfielder tasked with steering the Blaugrana back towards the top of the La Liga table after an unconvincing start to the campaign.

    Messi obviously knows Xavi well, having spent ten years alongside him in the first team at Camp Nou, and he confessed to Marca that he is expecting big things from his old team-mate.

    “He can contribute a lot,” Messi said. “He’s a coach who knows a lot, knows the club perfectly and has lived in Barcelona since he was a child.

    “He has renewed the illusion in Barcelona because he is someone who is highly respected by fans and players. He will be a very important coach for the younger footballers because he will teach them. With him, the team will grow a lot. I do not have any doubts.
