The club are still ninth after Sergi Barjuan was appointed as caretaker coach and nine points behind leaders Real Sociedad with a game in hand.

 

Barjuan is set to remain in charge for his league match at Celta Vigo on Saturday, with Xavi arriving at Barcelona this weekend ahead of his presentation on Monday.

 

Xavi’s first game after the international break will be the local derby against Espanyol on 20 November.

 

A former Spain international, Xavi joined Al-Sadd as a player in 2015, becoming head coach after hanging up his boots in 2019. In April, he led his side to the Qatari domestic league title with an unbeaten side.

 

He turned down an opportunity to coach Barca in January 2020 after the sacking of Ernesto Valverde, but remained attached to the job in August last year after koeman  succeeded Quique Setien.
