FC Barcelona is heading for a new white season. The second in three years. Disappointing for a good part of the year, the Blaugrana were quickly left behind in the title race. They were also eliminated in the first round of the Champions League.
The gap therefore widened a little more with the rival of Real even if there was a demonstration during the last Clasico (4-0). The picture is therefore not brilliant but within the club, we want to project ourselves into the future with serenity.

Xavi certain of Barça’s awakening
This Saturday, at a press conference, Xavi expressed his conviction that Barça will perform well in 2022/2023: “I am always optimistic. Next year we will have to be competitive again, as it looked like we could do this year, although that didn’t happen and we have to do our self-criticism. Next year we will have to fight for the titles again. We are going to demand a lot more.”
Not to miss
Xavi also indicated that his management shares the same state of mind and that they are ready to make the necessary efforts to restore the team to its former glory. “In a few days we will have to know what economic situation we are in to start planning. To see who we can count on and to see who we cannot count on, the economic level marks it for us. I am always optimistic. next year we will have to be competitive again, as it seemed that we could do this year, even if it did not happen and we have to do our self-criticism. Next year we will have to fight again for the titles. We’re going to demand a lot more.”
Finally, Xavi also spoke during his speech about the Frenkie De Jong case, which is announced in the sights of Manchester United. He said that in an ideal world it would be good to keep the Dutch midfielder. “I have said several times that Frenkie de Jong is very important. He has almost always been a starter under my orders and for me, he is fundamental. Then there is also the financial situation of the club and we will have to decide. I’m not talking about Frenkie, but in general”.
