Quique Setien is not a Barcelona manager that will be backed for the future, presidential candidate, Victor Font has said.
Font recently revealed that the people who are looking to take control at Camp Nou are planning to bring Xavi back to the club.
According to him, even if he likes Setien, Xavi is the biggest hope for Barcelona managerial wise.
He, however, added that Setien should be backed and respected because he is the current coach.
His words, “He’s the current Barca coach so for that reason alone he deserves all our respect and support.
“For me personally he’s a coach I’ve always liked but it’s true too that he’s not the coach we’re backing for the future.”
“It’s true that Xavi will be the coach when he decides, whoever is president, because Xavi is Barcelona and their biggest hope.
“I’m sure there will not be another project that has worked for so long to ensure that the sporting project that Xavi has in his head can be executed with the maximum chance of success.
“Xavi perfectly fits the profile of a player from here, formed in the youth academy, and knows and defends the style we defend ourselves.
“In the case of having the honour to be in charge, he will be the centre around which the whole football project will pivot in the coming years.”
