Xavi: It will be a dream come true if I’ll be the coach and Pique will be the President of Barcelona

xavi-on-piqueThe for­mer Barcelona mid­field­er spoke to a Span­ish radio sta­tion Cade­na COPE in which he revealed his dream for FC Barcelona and also shared his own take on tomorrow’s El Cla­si­co.

On Messi’s con­tract renew­al in Barcelona

FC Barcelona still have an exist­ing con­tract that binds both par­ties togeth­er. And all I see is that Leo is very hap­py and sat­is­fied where he is. I’ve nev­er spo­ken to him about his renew­al with Bar­ca but he knows he’s at the best place he can ever be. I don’t see him mov­ing to any oth­er club. If I have to place a bet, it will be that Mes­si will fin­ish his career at Barcelona.”

On Cla­si­co

Cla­si­cos are very dif­fer­ent from nor­mal games. One side can be behind from the oth­er by 20 points on the league table but can still have a great game or vice ver­sa. There can be a lit­tle more pres­sure on Barcelona because they are six points behind Real Madrid on the stand­ing table.”

On Iniesta’s effect on the El Cla­si­co

Ini­es­ta is sure­ly a decider in the game. He may not score goals but he gives the team con­fi­dence just by play­ing on the field. If they say the team had less con­trol of the ball in pre­vi­ous game, he’ll give them the con­trol they need.

On Ger­ard Pique’s ambi­tion of becom­ing the Pres­i­dent of FC Barcelona

I think Pique has the abil­i­ty to lead, he’s an achiev­er. What­ev­er he wants, he goes for it and get it. It would be a dream come true if I’m the coach and Pique is the Pres­i­dent of FC Barcelona. It’s some­thing I’ve nev­er stopped think­ing about.
