Xavi gives update on his future after Barcelona's win against Rayo Vallecano

Xavi Hernandez was once again asked about his future at Barcelona following the team's 3-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.

The Barcelona coach insisted he had no news on the situation but expected to meet president Joan Laporta soon for talks.

“The message is the same. If I have any news to give, I will be happy to give it to you. The situation is the same. I imagine the president and I will see each other again tomorrow or the day after tomorrow or the day after tomorrow,” he said.

Xavi also spoke about some chants heard in Montjuic. Fans were heard chanting 'Xavi yes, Laporta no' but the boss called for unity.

“I don't like it when they whistle or sing for or against someone connected to the club. It's an unpleasant situation. I am grateful to the fans in my person because they have always held me in esteem. Grateful and excited for today.

“I am not looking for division, I am looking for unity and consensus. I am a family and group person. I didn't like these chants against the president. I hope we can turn this situation around.

“We must all be united. We said it three weeks ago. The project, the ambition, the hope… mine has not changed. It doesn't matter how many people write or speak in the press. I want to start next season thinking that things can be done well.

Speculation persists that Laporta is determined to have a new coach in place for next season and wants to fire Xavi. The two men now appear set to meet for crucial talks in the coming days, when the situation could become clearer.
