He refused to coach Chelsea for Barcelona.. A great coach is close to succeeding Xavi

“Sport” newspaper reported that Hansi Flick rejected the idea of ​​​​coaching Chelsea, and is still waiting to reach an agreement with the Barcelona administration to take over the team’s coaching position to succeed Xavi Hernandez.

All Spanish newspapers confirm that Barcelona President Joan Laporta will dismiss Xavi due to the coach’s statements that Barcelona does not have the necessary capabilities to compete with major European clubs next season.

According to the latest report from “Sport”, Chelsea was interested in contracting with Flick to succeed Mauricio Pochettino, but the German coach informed the English club that he was not interested in this job.

It is clear that Flick has become obsessed with the idea of ​​​​training Barcelona specifically next season, especially since an agreement was very close between the two parties before the Catalan club announced the continuation of Xavi last month.

Meanwhile, sporting director Deco and his assistant Bojan Krekic traveled to London on Wednesday to hold a session with Flick and his agent Pini Zahavi, which confirms that he is now the closest option to succeed Xavi at Camp Nou.

In practice, there is only one name competing with Flick, which is Rafael Marquez, but Laporta does not believe that it is the appropriate time to rely on the Mexican, while the name of Thiago Motta has also been put forward, but the Italian is on his way to coach Juventus.
