Xavi's father believes the ex-Blaugrana is not yet ready to coach Barca
- Xavi made his debut against Palamos in a 1-1 draw.
- His father watched the match live.
- Joaquin Hernandez believes at Barca his son would have been under too much pressure.
- The parent assures that Al-Sadd is only a stepping stone on Xavi's path to Camp Nou.
Barcelona legendary midfielder Xavi recently made his managerial debut. Although the match ended in a 1-1 draw, the ex-player's father, Joquin Hernandez, felt that the performance has been good. Nonetheless, the parent believes it would be too early for him to start coaching at Barca:
"Barca is a big deal, there is a lot of pressure and it is not convenient to start in a team with so much pressure. Xavi needs to go little by little because starting under pressure won't take you anywhere.
"He has already said it on before, he has to be very prepared to access a bench like Barca.
"He could have continued playing for a year or two in Qatar but he thought it was a good opportunity for him to stop and kickstart his coaching career. He will be there for two years."
What's curious, Xavi did not use any sophisticated tactics: 4-3-3 with a former Atletico Madrid captain Gabi leading the midfield line. Continuous ball possession, triangles in central zones, quick touches - that's what it was about. Very familiar pick for the 39-year-old.
