Xavi has no good word to say about the direction of Real Madrid and Julen Lopetegui. The 38-year-old midfielder will find it incomprehensible that club and coach of the world cup-what are the chances of Spain at risk.
Xavi played 133 international matches for Spain. Therein he made 12 goals.
“This was not the right time,” said Xavi, who today opens for Al Sadd in Qatar, compared to Radio Marca.
Lopetegui was Wednesday, one day after it became known that he is after the world cup to get started at Real Madrid, dismissed as head coach. The Spanish football federation was only five minutes before the announcement of the transition on the height.
Lopetegui had his contract last month extended by two years. Technical director Fernando Hierro is to be put forward as new head coach.
Xavi hopes secretly that the chaos in the Spanish camp until something good results. “You don’t know. We have players who all have already experienced in their career. Leadership will not be lacking with Sergio Ramos, Gerard Piqué and Andrés Iniesta. The situation is not ideal, but on the other side, the team will also unite.”
Spain starts the world cup on Friday with a showdown with Portugal. Later in the group stage are still matches with Iran and Morocco on the program.
