Joan Laporta's trusted advisor 'urging' him to remove Xavi as Barca manager

Xavi is under severe threat of being removed from his position as Barcelona manager after having angered Joan Laporta.

Mundo Deportivo reports that it’s actually one of Laporta’s close confidantes who is pushing him to fire Xavi. The name of his ‘advisor’ has not been revealed.

This comes after the Spanish gaffer infuriated many within the club. This is due to comments where he hinted that Barca aren’t strong enough to compete with Real Madrid next season.

There is going to be an internal meeting to take place between Xavi, Laporta, and sporting director Deco after the Rayo Vallecano game. The final decision on whether or not to sack the Spaniard will be made after that.

Barca, of course, faces potential issues in firing their manager. This is because Xavi will be owed a €20m pay-off if fired anytime soon.
