Barcelona in Crisis After 4-2 Loss to Girona
Following Barcelona’s devastating 4-2 loss to Girona, the team is in turmoil as the Spanish league leader exposed many of their problems. Coach Xavi is at the center of criticism from the Catalan media, who have been particularly harsh in their assessment of the team’s performance.
Xavi’s comments following the game, where he described Barça as a “team under construction, we played well,” have drawn heavy criticism. Veteran journalist Joseph Capdevilla, formerly of the Catalan ‘Sport’, noted that Xavi’s statements contradicted those of players Deco and De Jong, who expressed that Barça did not play well. Capdevilla took to Twitter to express his doubts about Xavi’s leadership, suggesting that he is merely serving as a shield for the president against media criticism.
Another senior journalist, Francisco Cabasas, wrote in the Catalan ‘El Periodico’ that “Barça is nothing more than a caricature of Girona.” Cabasas also pointed out that Xavi has the second-worst record of any coach at Barca in the last 15 years, with a 62.16% win rate.
The team’s poor performance has sent shockwaves through the football world, with many questioning Xavi’s ability to lead the team. As Barcelona tries to recover from the devastating loss, it is clear that the pressure is mounting on the coach and the players to turn their season around.
