Odds Increasing for Roberto De Zerbi to Follow Xavi at Barcelona

Roberto De Zerbi is becoming increasingly favoured to take over from Xavi as FC Barcelona’s head coach, according to the club’s president, Joan Laporta. Since announcing Xavi’s departure, De Zerbi, the current Brighton manager, has been a prominent candidate for the role. Now, reports from Sport suggest that it could be more than just speculation.

Joan Laporta, president of Barça, has reportedly asked his scouts to provide detailed reports on the former Sassuolo coach. The focus being not just on his professional profile, but also his personal demeanour off-field and his relationship with players, to ascertain if De Zerbi is the suitable candidate for the position.
