2 reasons why Rafa Marquez has no chance of becoming Barca head coach

Barca Athletic head coach Rafael Marquez was reported to be among the candidates to succeed Xavi at the end of the season.

However, according to Relevo, it's no longer the case. The Mexican will not be considered for the managerial vacancy at Barca's senior team. Why?

Firstly, his comments the day following Xavi's exit announcement were considered insensitive. Marquez said that he 'could not say no' to the job with the first team.

Secondly, the 45-year-old promoted a Mexican betting company on his personal Instagram account. It gave the club a bad look and could clash with Barcelona's own sponsorship deals. He has since taken down the post.

So, despite impressing with the results with Barca Athletic, Marquez's opportunity to succeed Xavi is gone.
