There have been lots of rumours claiming that Xavi’s job as Barca manager is no longer safe.

Sack rumours have been circling the media after Barca suffered back to back defeats against Girona and Antwerp.

With Barca also 7 points behind in the title race, Xavi seems to be under much pressure to turn things around.

However, the Barcelona manager believes in his ability to turn things around, and claims that he still has the support of the club’s sporting director and president.

“Today we spent two hours talking with Deco and President Laporta. There is no problem inside… I’m fine, positive,” Xavi said after the Antwerp defeat, as quoted by Barca Universal.

“Laporta and Deco have confidence in me. I consider myself totally capable of turning the situation around. We have four titles at stake and I am positive. Nothing has changed.

“I think we are much better mentally than last year.”
