    I don't think xavi is ready yet, he needs to go and learn a bit more from the greats and development is own identity, I get the feeling he will just try to be pep and end up being pep lite other wise.

    I'd even take Wenger now as a quick 1-2 year term

    He is becoming more and more like a Qatarpuppet.
    What a shame.

    Suffered a harsh defeat in Asian CL, 1-4 at home
    Apparently they were doing great until a red card

    Oct 2018: Xavi criticizes Mourinho's defensive football.

    Al-Sadd, with Xavi as manager, have now conceded 23 goals in their last 7 games. Won 2 & lost 5. Al-Sadd fans are chanting "Xavi out" at games.

    Mourinho: "There are a lot of poets in football but they don't win titles."

    Not sure if there's been huge changes to teams in the summer transfer window but this same Al Sadd team won the league by 7 points last year. Even if they win their 2 games in hand they'll be 5 points off the top with half the season played. If Xavi ever manages barca he needs to spend a good half a decade learning, preferably in europe.

    Last season Xavi was a player for Al Sadd and this season he is not?

    He needs to manage in Europe. You can't become a good manager in Qatar league ffs.

    Qatar SC 0:3
    Al Duhail 1:4
    Al Ahli 2:1
    Al Hilal 4:2
    Al Rayyan 2:4
    Al Hilal 1:4

    Conceded 18 in the last 6 matches.
    He seems ready for our bench...

    ** Good news is: his team always has a lot more possession that the opponent. Even when they lose
    In one match they got a red card in the 35th minute, lost 1:4, but managed to have 49% possession with 10 men.

    A lot can change in football management in a short space of time. He did win manager of the month the month before but of course people have to jump on the negatives. Football however is a fickle sport, one month you're the greatest thing ever, the next you're not up to standard.

    Xavi may never reach the heights as a manager as he did as a midfielder but he can't be judged too harshly just yet.

    His original scouting report from when he was 14. Taken from Cristian Martin's book La Masia: Developing people beyond sport.



    Running: He runs on his heels, his movements are slow and he has trouble picking up speed.

    Balance: Average

    Coordination: Good. His movements are correct, but lack speed.

    Flexibility: Average. He needs a lot of work in this regard.

    Skill: Good, without it being his forte. He has the resources in his game to take advantage of any situation.

    Fitness: Good. He has everything a good midfielder should.

    Muscle endurance: Good.

    Speed: Average. He has to improve his agility and speed of movement.

    Starting Speed: Average

    Rapid strength: Average

    Control: Excellent. He offsets his lack of speed in movement with exceptional ball control.

    Passing: Very good. He should improve with his left foot, but this is his great strength on the pitch.

    Crossing: Good. He is almost never forced into this action.

    Shooting: Acceptable. He should improve this for when he gets forward in attack, like Guardiola.

    Running: Very good. He has a good sense of protecting the ball, he almost never loses it.

    Dribbling: Good. Without being his best asset, his technical level is impressive.

    Positioning: Excellent. It is undoubtedly his best quality. He is always where he should be and always offers support and an option for teammates.

    Aggression: Average. His eminently technical style sometimes makes this aspect difficult to judge.

    Won his 1st game in Club World Cup. Probably the only games that anyone would watch for him during his career at Qatar
