Barcelona candidate Victor Font: What Xavi told me about Koeman...

Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font admits Xavi has told him he should stick with Ronald Koeman as coach if he wins election.

Al Sadd boss and Barca legend Xavi is part of Font's ticket and there were plans of installing him as head coach.

But Font told RAC1: "Koeman is doing a good job and he will be the coach.

"I spoke with Xavi and he told me that Koeman had his place in the project. But depending on how things are going, Xavi could still be the coach."

There's been suggestions Xavi could return to Barca as a sporting director should Font win the vote.
