Xavi Hernandez has been busy telling Barcelona exactly what they want to hear with his latest comments about his former club.

The club legend has reiterated that it is his dream to return to the Camp Nou in the future and manage the team, according to Sport’s Didac Peyret.

“The biggest hope I have now is to be Barca coach and get Barca back to winning ways. Not me but these players and Barca triumphing. And as a consequence, our technical staff, who are preparing for it a lot and it makes us really excited.”

“I’m a club man. I would like to return at the right moment to start a project from zero. I’ve said it a lot of times but I want to take footballing decisions at Barcelona.

“It’s clear that after the elections the stage would be set, of course. I’m not ruling anything out. They came for me in January, we were speaking. I told them the circumstances and timing weren’t right.”
