Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez expressed his jubilation at winning his first La Liga title as the manager of the club, having previously won eight titles as a player.

The victory ended Barcelona’s four-year title drought. Xavi’s team secured a 4-2 triumph over city rivals Espanyol on Sunday, with Robert Lewandowski scoring two goals in the first half.

In the 2018-19 season, Barcelona last clinched the Spanish championship, led by club legends Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez. However, due to the club’s financial struggles, both players were compelled to depart, which impacted the team’s performance and success.

However, less than two years after returning to the club as its coach, Xavi has guided Barcelona back to the top of the La Liga table.

Reflecting on their triumph, Xavi expressed a magnificent feeling and highlighted the hard work and sacrifice put in by the team over the course of more than 10 months.

In an interview with Movistar Plus, Xavi stated, “Winning it was vital for the stability of the project, for the fans, for the club. We must continue on this path.” He acknowledged that winning the league signifies that they are performing exceptionally well and brings stability to the club. However, Xavi also mentioned that their unfinished business lies in European competition, indicating their ambition to excel on the continental stage as well.


Over the past three seasons, Barcelona has failed to progress beyond the last 16 of the Champions League, despite their impressive track record of winning four titles and ten La Liga championships from 2005 to 2019.

Despite their recent European struggles, Barcelona has had a remarkable domestic season, winning the Spanish Super Cup final against Real Madrid and clinching the La Liga title with four games to spare.

Xavi acknowledged the pressure and praised his family for their support, stating, “I thought about my wife, my parents, my brothers and sisters… the staff, who have suffered a lot, those who never fail.”

Xavi also recognized that in Spain, criticism is normal, even when he was a player, but he is determined and persistent. He believes that when there is good work, the reward eventually comes.
