Sport: Flick became Wednesday presented as Barca’s new coach, three days after Xavi led the team for the last time against Sevilla on Sunday. On its website, Barcelona states that the 59-year-old has signed an agreement that runs until the summer of 2026.

Before the weekend, German media wrote that the parties were close to agreement in the negotiations. In Barcelona, ​​he is reunited with striker Robert Lewandowski, who was important to Flick during his time at Bayern Munich.

Flick has been unemployed since he had to leave as national team manager for Germany in September last year. He has previously had great success as head coach for Bayern, where he also won four league golds as a player.

Xavi had a turbulent last season as Barcelona coach. In January, he announced that he would only work out the season, but three months later he signed an extension until the summer of 2025. Nevertheless, he is now finished at the club.
