Xavi has shed light on the future of Barcelona with defender Gerard Pique hoping to become president of the club, whilst enlisting the help of some of the legendary names from the recent period of success at the Nou Camp, 90min reports.

Speaking to Spanish radio channel Cadena SER on Tuesday evening, the midfielder, who is current plying his trade in Qatar with Al Sadd, revealed that his former teammate is hoping to call on the likes of Carles Puyol and Sergio Busquets to oversee the next generation of success in Catalunya.

Despite no longer appearing for the Blaugrana, Xavi is well aware of ongoings at the club of his heart and remains happy to pass comment on Luis Enrique’s side.

The legendary number 6 spoke of fellow Catalan Pique’s desire to move from a playing position to that of a presidential role as a means of supporting Barcelona’s identity that he holds in such high regard.

With a number of high profile academy graduates at the club and across the continent, Pique’s concept to install Xavi as manager would symbolically mark a rise from the bottom to the very top at Barcelona, a policy Nou Camp chiefs have implemented previously with Pep Guardiola.

“Geri’s (Pique) said he wants to be president of the club one day, with (Carles) Puyol as sporting director, me as manager and Sergio Busquets as my assistant,” revealed the 36-year-old.

Despite insisting that it is too soon to return to the Nou Camp, Xavi has admitted his admiration for the process Bayern Munich follow by integrating former players into the structure of the club, one that Pique seems keen to replicate.
