Real Betis considering Barca legend Xavi

Xavi Hernandez’s first step into coaching could be at Real Betis. The Seville club are thinking about appointing the former Barcelona midfielder next season when he hangs up his boots.

As revealed by SPORT, Xavi has already began his UEFA badges and will have everything in place, to there would be no problem if they did decide to move for him.

Betis will part ways with Quique Setien in the summer but they won’t give up on their bet for playing one-touch football when possible. Setien’s days are up but the philosophy, they hope, will live on. At the club there are thoughts that Xavi could be the perfect man to practice attacking and attractive football and bring good results.

After confirming his imminent retirement from football, everything suggests Xavi will begin his coaching career at the club where he will retire, Al-Sadd in Qatar, away from the media attention. But Betis have the players to attract him and to play his style of football.
