Laliga: Xavi Signs Off With Win Against Sevilla

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Xavi Hernandez leaves as Barcelona coach with a 2-1 win at Sevilla on Sunday to close out the La Liga season, before warning his replacement the job "won't be easy".

The Catalans, second, finish the campaign trophyless but were at least able to triumph in Xavi's last match in charge after president Joan Laporta sacked him on Friday.

Just weeks earlier, Barcelona announced Xavi was staying for next season after the coach said in January he had decided to resign in the summer.

Appointed in November 2021, Xavi led Barcelona to the Spanish title last season, but this year his team finished 10 points behind champions and bitter rivals Real Madrid.

German coach Hansi Flick is expected to be appointed as Xavi's successor next week.
