Barcelona fan survey: Share your thoughts on Xavi’s decision – and the club’s future

Xavi’s decision to step down as Barcelona manager at the end of the season raises several questions about where the club goes now.

The most obvious is: who should they look to land as a replacement?

Here, we’d like to ask for your thoughts and opinions on the big themes facing Barca right now, including that question above but also some of the wider ones, too.

Xavi’s description of some of the reasons behind his resignation also included concerns over the club’s culture and the unique pressures associated with being Barca boss.

There is also the question of Barca’s stricken finances. Later this week, The Athletic will publish an in-depth look at the extent of the club’s latest money worries and how it affects their hunt for a new coach. But one common reaction to this weekend’s news was the suggestion Barca simply accept that they should now go through a phase of consolidation — perhaps by giving their emerging young talents a chance to impress, while cutting the wage bill and selling more senior players. What do you think about that?

And now, with Barca fourth in La Liga, 11 points behind surprise leaders Girona (who have played one game more) and 10 points behind rivals Real Madrid, how can the season be saved from here? Maybe you think Champions League success is still a possibility — or maybe you believe Xavi’s announcement will galvanise the squad in the league?

Please take the time to complete the survey below — and we will publish the results later this week.
