Since the start of this season, the Spanish Laliga giants FC Barcelona has been struggling to win matches despite sacking their Dutch manager Ronald Koeman after a disastrous time with the club.
Barcelona who were held to a 3-3 draw last weekend by Celta Vigo, announced their former player Xavi Hernandez as their new manager.
The former FC Barcelona star player who re-joined the Camp Nou club as their new manager after sending his heartfelt farewell message to his Qatar club recently will be given a great task of bringing the glory that was lost back to the Spanish Laliga giants.
The article states how Xavi’s new 10 commandments at the club will help restructure the pattern of his team’s performance this season.
Recently, the newly appointed Manager at Camp Nou released ten new rules all Barcelona players and staff will follow while at the club this season.
Before we get to see how these new commandments Xavi listed will help improve his team’s performance this season, let’s take a look at the rules;
- Players must be 90 minutes early to practice
- Staff must be 2 hours early to practice.
- Players must eat at the training ground.
- Players will be fined for breaking rules.
- Fines will double for repeated offense.
- Curfew 48 hours before a game.
- Travel and off-field habits will be monitored.
- Players are prohibited from dangerous activities.
- Players must maintain a good image.
Xavi’s idea of monitoring players off-field is a good one because it will make all players care about what they do and eat when they are on break. Some of his rules have been implemented after Ousman Dembele was recently fined for coming late to Barcelona’s training.
Although it will become hard for some players to cope with the new commandments with time they would adjust and get used to it. If these commandments are taken seriously, it will bring in the mindset of responsibility and self-development within every player in the Barcelona team.
