The challenges of Xavi in a broken barbecue

The detail is not at all casual. The governs of Barcelona have believed it appropriate to open on Monday the doors of the Camp Nou so that fans go en masse to honor the figure of Xavi Hernández. The idea is that the new coach, the fifth in the last 22 months, begins to be seen as the Moses that opens the seas and offers salvation to such an ungrateful present.

In a club in which Joan Laporta imposes his presidentialism, the Bicephalia will now be inevitable. Because Xavi will train a poorly structured template, squeezed and emotionally sunk. He will talk about soccer and tactics on the press chairs. Agree. But he will also exercise an institutional spokesperson when he touches him. And with a trajectory on the bench that is summarized in 102 games with the al-Sadd of Qatar, he will have to set themselves to start from the mud to a cyclops like Barcelona. The eyes will be placed on it, not so much in the box. It is also about that.

Xavi, who already took advantage of Saturday afternoon to approach the Johan Cruyff stadium to see what is cook in the subsidiary, will have to try to find a host of undertakes. And few such as the medical and physical management of a team that currently stacks eleven players in nursing. The collapse azulgrana in Vigo coincided precisely with the lesions of Ansu Fati, Nico González and Eric García. When Xavi made with the former presidential candidate Víctor Font a global shock plan for Barcelona, one of the areas in which he most insisted was in medication. By little Porta is allowed, he will try to intervene. Always by rubbing the possibility of recovering Dr. Ricard Pruna, who was 25 years old at the club, but with a contract now in the Arab Emirates.

For now, Xavi trusts that his physical trainer, Ivan Torres, and his recuperator, Carlos Rodríguez Nogueira, limit the incidence of muscle ailments. And he will also seek to remedy one of the obsessions of Porta: that the workouts are more demanding.

One of the main setbacks with which Xavi is going to come when attempting to adopt his football idea will be to find the suitable players to open the bands. The delicate Ousmane dembélé is the only pure end of the staff, with everything that carries. Try to go to the winter market, no matter how hard the Fair Play Financiero de Laliga, is presumed essential. Also to find a forward center that minimizes problems with the goal before the fall of Agüero and the assumed error of Luuk's incorporation of Jong. As much as they scored three in Balaídos, even in five games Barça did not mark. In Champions he has only added two goals on four days.

Although nothing will claim as much attention as the treatment that Xavi dispensates to the four captains, all of them former companions. "It's an advantage because I know them," repeats the technician as a litany. Sergio Busquets venerates, so the scheme will turn around. Jordi Alba, despite the irruption of the young bucket, does not have a replacement of guarantees. It is missing by seeing what role it will have Sergi Roberto, whose renovation is stopped. And, above all, if Piqué will continue to be irreplaceable in defense although it does not apply with the status of it in the template. Xavi, by the way, shares agent with Piqué, Riqui Puig and the forgotten UMtiti.

The first answers will not reach the premiere of Xavi the 20-N before a Espanyol that has the same points as Barça. It is that the reality that is found.
