Barcelona Will Sack Me If…–Xavi
The Catalans are on the verge of dropping out of the Champions League, after they were held to a 3-3 draw by Inter Milan last week.
Barca were then beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid in the El Clasico on Sunday, which saw them lose top spot in LaLiga.
“Of course I would, but no one has said anything to me,” Xavi told a news conference on Wednesday when asked if he would understand if the club lost confidence in him.
“This is Barca. With the effort made by the club [in the transfer market] and the squad we have, we have to compete for trophies. And if we don’t win, as the president said, there will be consequences, starting with me.
“But I am going to give everything so that this works. At any moment I could lose the club’s support, tomorrow even. This is football. We lost against Madrid, we’re almost out of [the Champions League], but I am always positive.”
