Barcelona in a state of a dispute as Xavi hits out at Abidal

The ex-Barcelona captain also showed his support in favor of Messi regarding his public comments

There is a crisis running in Barcelona with Messi’s future looks to be in jeopardy. Barca’s sporting director Eric Abidal alleged that a large section of the dressing room was under-performing as Ernesto Valverde with their manager. The club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has called upon a meeting with Abidal to discuss his future at the club after the public bust-up with Messi.

Eric Abidal in that interview also commented about the empty managerial role being offered to the long time club serving Xavi. Former Barcelona captain Xavi Hernández is currently the coach of Qatari side Al-Sadd. He expressed his annoyance with his former teammate. Xavi has not liked the interview Abidal gave to SPORT, where he said he had made no actual offer to Xavi to take over from Ernesto Valverde. But SPORT learns that he prefers to stay low at this moment and not say anything in anger.

The tension is real as Messi’s contract negotiation has hit a major setback. The Argentine replied back on Instagram to accuse the Frenchman of tarnishing the players’ reputations. He also demanded that the former defender should take responsibility for his own decisions at the press. Xavi backed Messi’s quote and is sour with Abidal. Barcelona is in a position of substantially deteriorate with its continuity of dismal form.

Abidal’s position at Barca has come under scrutiny after an upsetting interview. On being asked about their fallen form, he suggested the players were not working hard enough under their former coach Ernesto Valverde. Abidal denied that Barcelona had offered Xavi the job saying, “If he has an offer then let him show it.” But Xavi feels the club has attempted to discredit him after he met with Abidal several times for talks in Qatar. It is later on that the deal did not materialize.

Xavi does not want to get into a public spat with his old club. Moreover, there is a chance, he could still take over in the summer. It is so provided that Quique Setien does not progress their marked upturn in form. Till then he is considering maintaining his silence.
