Former Barcelona chief Lorenzo Serra Ferrer believes Xavi will prove a good coaching appointment.
Barca suffered defeat to Real Betis on Saturday.
But Serra Ferrer remains convinced by Xavi's arrival. He said: "The Dutch school has always been present at Barça.
"Xavi understood it since he was a child and developed the idea to perfection from the centre of the field. He starts with an advantage. I think that right now Barça is not able to fight for the LaLiga with Real Madrid and Atleti.
"We must consolidate the project with humility."
