According to Mundo Deportivo, FC Barcelona’s board has decided on a formula that it believes will help the men’s first team get out of the current slump.
Barca suffered two consecutive defeats and four defeats in their last nine matches, losing to Royal Antwerp in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Qualification for the knockout stage was guaranteed a fortnight before the last matchday in Group H, but the manner in which the Blaugrana were beaten 3-2 by a lower-ranked team did not go down well with fans and critics.
The knives are being sharpened for head coach Xavi Hernandez, who has been dogged by criticism, but it appears the club legend has the backing of the board, at least publicly, and it has identified areas where it believes improvements can be made to see better results on the pitch. .
The top officials’ straightforward formula is “training and winning,” according to which “everything happens through training” in order for players to perform at their peak during team competitions.
Mundo Deportivo said the club did not enjoy seeing players often given several days off after a couple of defeats or not having taken advantage of more training days with players not called up by their countries during the last three international breaks. Months.
“That’s why they think that it’s time for them to work unitedly and increase the workload, in keeping with the adage that you play while training,” the newspaper writes.”
While confidence in Xavi “remains intact,” people like sporting director Deco and president Joan Laporta believe it is “time to take a step forward” in the demands as Barca are essentially still competing for four titles.
After one o’clock in the afternoon in Catalonia on Thursday, Xavi’s men were already back in training, telling him that the team—or at least the staff—wanted to change things.
Saturday’s visit to Valencia provides the perfect platform to get fans back on their side before hosting Almeria on December 20 at the Montjuic Stadium to close 2023 in an official capacity.
