Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez insisted he still felt he had the confidence of president Joan Laporta on Saturday, despite intense speculation over his future. 


Spanish media widely reported Friday that Xavi would be sacked in the coming weeks but the coach said Barcelona had “conveyed calmness” to him.

The 44-year-old initially said declared in January he would leave at the end of the season but made a dramatic U-turn in April after the team’s form improved. However Laporta was reportedly angry with Xavi’s words earlier this week when the coach highlighted Barcelona’s financial difficulties in contrast to the might of eternal rivals Real Madrid

“The news doesn’t interest me, [the club] conveys me calmness and confidence, for me absolutely nothing has changed,” Xavi told a news conference.

“We’ll sit down with the president, if we have to talk about something we will, but in theory everything is as it was three weeks ago.” 

Barcelona can seal second place in La Liga if they beat Rayo Vallecano on Sunday in the penultimate league match.
