Xavi: Now is not the time to go back to Barcelona

Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez has ruled out the possibility of returning to the team as head coach and said now is not the time. Xavi, who currently runs Qatari`s Al Sadd, turned down an offer from the Catalans in January, but in the spring he wanted to head his favorite club. Now, however, the former Spanish international has made another 180-degree turn and again ruled out the possibility.

`There`s too much noise outside the club, a lot of off-field problems, and I don`t think now is a good time to go back to the Nou Camp, ` the former midfielder told Icon magazine.

`In January, I told managementto the club that now is not the time to return and no one is looking for me anymore. It will be a privilege for me to lead Barcelona one day, but for now I am happy to be able to gain experience as a coach `, added Xavi and called on the management to do what is necessary so that Lionel Messi can re-sign.

`Messi needs Bar?a and Bar?a needs Messi. They have to make him happy because the contented Messi wins trophies. Physically, tactically and technically he is amazing and continues to be the best player in every game he plays. `, explained his former teammate.
