Xavi: No official approach from Barcelona for Al Sadd manager

Barcelona make official approach for Xavi to replace Valverde as head coach

Valverde's position has come under increased scrutiny following Barcelona's Supercopa de Espana exit to Atletico Madrid on Thursday, although the Catalan giants do remain top of LaLiga on goal difference from Real Madrid. Everyone knows what to train at Barça it's my dream, but I'm now an Al Sadd coach and I'm focused on that.

World Cup victor Xavi came through the Catalans' academy and played 855 senior games for the Camp Nou side.

Xavi is now in charge of Qatari club Al-Sadd and club General manager Turk Al-Ali tried to cool the rumours saying, "The issue of Xavi going to Barcelona is normal and expected because he will be at his club and it's his first home and he must return there in the future, but as of today, Xavi is the coach of Al Sadd". After the game, Terrasa said: "There is no offer from Barça, I met with Abidal because he is my friend".

Addressing the media after Al-Sadd's 4-1 win over Al-Rayyan in the Qatar Cup semifinals, Xavi also spoke about his recent meeting with Barcelona club official Eric Abidal but would not elaborate on the nature of their conversation.

"I was focused on the semi-final and now I'm focusing on the final".
