Barcelona manager Xavi has announced that he will leave the club at the end of the season.
Xavi’s position was in the spotlight as the LaLiga champions fell behind Real Madrid and Girona at the top of the table.
After Saturday’s 5-3 home defeat by Villarreal, Xavi sent a message to the club’s social media account confirming his departure.
“I want to announce that on June 30 I will no longer continue as a coach at Barca,” Xavi said.
“I think the situation has to change direction and as a culer (Barca fan) I can’t allow the current situation.”
