Good news coming over from Qatar as Xavi wins his first ever trophy in his coaching career. The Spaniard's team, Al Sadd, beat Al-Duhail in the Qatari Sheikh Jassim Cup, an annual match between the league winners and the cup winners.
Al Sadd won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Ali Asad Baqer in the 13th minute. It became the club's 15th win in the competition.
"The leaders win the Super Cup and achieve 70 titles in their history. Congratulations," tweeted the Qatari club.
Xavi's achievement as a coach so far:
- Super Cup win (vs Al-Duhail, 1-0)
- Reached the AFC Champions League quarterfinals (vs Al-Duhail, 4-2 overall)
- Qualified for the 2019 Club Wolrd Cup (could end up playing Liverpool)
Reportedly, Barcelona want to appoint Xavi as the club's coach at a later point. Moreover, presidential candidate Victor Font has spoken on several occasions about his intention to bring the ex-player to Catalonia if he wins the 2021 elections.
Xavi signed a two-year contract at the Qatari club, which means he will be available to take over Barca if font wins the 2021 presidential elections.
