Barcelona are going through a transitional phase at the moment and a proper manager is extremely important to shape the new generation of players of the club. Currently, the club is being managed by Barca legend, Ronald Koeman, however, many have doubted his managerial abilities and believe that the club needs a more prolific coach. Another Catalan legend, Xavi Hernandez, agrees with that as he recently stated that German boss, Joachim Low would be a good fit for the team.

Low has been coaching the German national team for 15 years now but he announced that he would be leaving the side after the upcoming Euros. Germany enjoyed some great times under the manager and even managed to lift the 2014 FIFA World Cup in great style.

However, that was their high point and they have been on a downward spiral ever since. Their 2018 World Cup exit was embarrassing and then a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Spain was almost unbearable to watch. Low’s men hit a new low yesterday when they lost to North Macedonia 2-1 in the World Cup Qualifiers.

Joachim Low is a good fit for Barcelona claims Xavi

Still, Xavi believes that the former World Cup-winning coach is a good fit for the Blaugrana. In an interview with Suddeutsche Zeitung, the legendary midfielder praised the German boss and explained exactly why he would be a good option for the Catalans. He said,

"“He was a luxury coach. He wanted spectacle, attacking football, and then he became world champion with it,”“Germany has developed a different understanding of football that reminds me a lot of what I know from Spain and Barcelona.”“[He would be a good fit for Barcelona] because of his way of understanding the game and because of his personality.”Source Goal"

Low was certainly a fantastic coach back in the days, but now he has lost his magic and Germany’s failures for the past few years proves that statement. Ronald Koeman on the other hand acquired a broken team but has done a lot and the club currently sits in 2nd position, four points behind Atletico Madrid.

They are also in the Copa del Rey finals and could end up with two trophies this season. Even winning one could be considered a successful debut season for Koeman and relieving him off of his duties after this season would be extremely harsh and unfair to the Dutch mastermind.
