Barcelona continues to face issues that need to be resolved as soon as feasible. Under Xavi Hernandez, the Catalan giants are going through one of their darkest times right now. Therefore, corrective action must be taken right away.
Beyond only the tactical adjustments, though, Xavi had another expectation for January: more players. Vitor Roque, a talented Brazilian, and a new pivot are the main additions to strengthen the midfield. But it now appears unlikely that either will be able to make it.
A challenging winter is ahead.
SPORT, a Spanish publication, reports that Xavi Hernandez has been made aware of how difficult it will be to sign players in January. It is unlikely that the Spaniard will be able to rely on Roque or any other new pivot. The main issue is allegedly the financial challenge of executing these arrivals.
Even so, Barcelona trusts Xavi to guide this team’s forward motion. The team now assembled is regarded by the club as outstanding and well scouted. It is expected of the Barcelona coach to sift through his plenty of gifted superstars and find the proper answers.
Patience and faith
Barcelona believes they have given the Catalan coach ample depth in the squad. But Faith never wavers in her assessment of Xavi’s skills and aptitude as a manager. Expectations are high because the team he now has at Barcelona is his best one to date.
Vitor Roque and Athletico Paranaense are still waiting on word from Barcelona in Brazil. Within the coming week, a decision about Roque’s potential incorporation in January is anticipated to be made. After that, Barcelona will take whatever action is required. Barcelona currently recognizes that numerous positions on the club have multiple strong players supporting them. Aside from injuries, they also regard it as a team with the players needed to compete at the greatest level.
