The Qatari station, quoting its sources, stated that the dam management does not intend to renew Chappi’s contract at the end of the current season.
Xavi has won 6 titles as a coach for Qatar’s Al Sadd since he took over the job in 2019, right after he retired from playing football for the same team.
Barcelona or Qatar?
Xavi’s expected departure from the dam opens a huge door of questions about his near future.
On the one hand, the name Xavi has been associated with for a long time with Barcelona, who will not be a secret that he will take over his coaching sooner or later, but the question: When?
Ronald Koeman, the current coach of the Blaograna, has a contract with Barcelona until the end of next season, but his future is not guaranteed until the moment and may depend on Barcelona achieving the league title or not.
But on the other hand, it is also no secret that Xavi Hernandez as coach of Qatar in the 2022 World Cup is an idea on the table.
This comes despite the overwhelming success of fellow countryman Felix Sanchez, who led Annabi to the first AFC Asian Cup title in its history in 2019.
