2021 could bring us some big changes within the board and the coaching staff – and we have our own suggestions if Xavi takes over.

"It would be a privilege to coach Barca one day with the right team, like Jordi Cruyff, Carles Puyol and some of the current players," Xavi confessed in his most recent interview.

Let's take a look at those people who could well join the current Al Sadd manager at Camp Nou.

Victor Valdes

Where he is now: Horta (manager)

The former Barcelona star has already had a short-term spell with Juvenil A (Barcelona U19) but the rumoured internal conflict made Valdes leave the club with no hesitation.

Due to the lack of his managerial experience, we believe there might be other branches where Valdes' presence would be a good solution. And Xavi, who was long Victor's teammate, would definitely consider his candidature.

Garcia Pimienta

Where he is now: Barcelona B (manager)

The fan-favourite, Pimienta has done some tremendous job with Barcelona's youth sides over the past years and was really close to achieving the long-awaited Segunda promotion with Barcelona B this season.

This man certainly deserves getting a chance to work with the first team and we're in no doubt that Xavi would be interested in such suggestion too.

Andres Iniesta

Where he is now: Vissel Kobe (player)

The revival of 'XavIniesta' is always on Cules' minds these days. Xavi could possibly mean his long-term midfield partner by saying that he'd welcome some current players as well.

"A partnership of Xavi and Iniesta doesn't sound bad at all, but it's not possible at the moment," Andres told Radio Marca in January. He's ready for taking the challenge.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst

Where he is now: Guangzhou R&F (manager)

The former Barca defender gained some truly priceless experience last year after reportedly spending a couple of months with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. After that, he went on to become a manager in the Chinese Super League.

Could be a nice addition to Xavi's dream team but certainly needs more time to establish himself as a valuable asset.

Lionel Messi

Where he is now: Barcelona (player)

Everyone has seen Messi succeeding as a player and basically everyone believes he could be successful as a manager, too. In case the Argentine decides to hang his boots earlier than many expect, he could be part of a grandiose project with his former teammate Xavi involved.
