New Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez was unveiled at the Camp Nou on Monday morning.

The Spanish club had been pursuing Xavi as a replacement for Ronald Koeman after he was sacked a fortnight ago, and negotiations with Al Sadd had proved trickier than expected.

Xavi reportedly had a release clause of five million euros, and while it remains unclear how Barcelona met that figure, he was permitted to sign with the Catalan club.

He left Barcelona as a player in 2015 before playing for Al Sadd for four years, and he then took over as the club’s coach.
