Xavi Hernandez has chosen to extend his stay in charge of Qatari side Al-Sadd for another two years, his club said on Wednesday, dampening speculation he could take over at former club Barcelona next season.
Xavi: “I’m proud to continue at Al-Sadd. We achieved a lot together, scored goals, won matches and titles, and we are all very proud of this success. Getting this kind of support is the best thing any coach can get.”#AlSadd #XAVI2023 pic.twitter.com/lFpXrjofGP

The former midfield great joined Al-Sadd as a player in 2015 after 17 trophy-laden years with Barca, becoming head coach after hanging up his boots in 2019. Last month he led the team to the Qatari domestic league title while remaining unbeaten.
