Barcelona doubt Hansi Flick and 3 more manager options – reasons named (reliability: 5 stars)

Barcelona have doubts about hiring Hans-Dieter Flick, Thomas Tuchel, Roberto De Zerbi or Rafa Marquez as their new head coach, reports The Athletic's Pol Ballus.

Here are the reported reasons.

Flick: lack of fluent English or Spanish language.

Tuchel: the scandalous way he was leaving Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Bayern Munich in.

De Zerbi: unproven at the top level.

Marquez: same as De Zerbi.

The source confirms the Barca bosses are trying to convince Xavi to stay. If his stance doesn't change, the club will make the decision with an eye to the delicate financial situation.

As things stand, Xavi will leave Barcelona on June 30. However, this is only a verbal agreement as his current deal with Blaugrana expires in 2025.
