Barcelona is currently facing a crucial decision in finding a replacement for Xavi Hernandez as the debate over the type of coach they should hire heats up. This disagreement is pitting Sporting Director Deco against President Joan Laporta, and it will have significant implications for the club’s future.

The Laporta Perspective: Pursuing a ‘Top’ Manager

President Joan Laporta believes that Barcelona should aim to hire a well-known and reputable manager, such as Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel, or Julian Nagelsmann. He sees this as essential for the club’s future success and has his eye on Hansi Flick as the current frontrunner, who is reportedly learning Spanish.

Sporting Director Deco has a different vision, preferring a lower profile manager who is ready to take the next step in their career and is adaptable. He believes that Porto’s Sergio Conceicao would be the best fit for Barcelona, pointing to his use of youngsters and his representation by Jorge Mendes as major advantages.
