Former Barcelona manager slams club over sacking, claims special treatment for Xavi

Former FC Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman has broken his silence about his unceremonious exit from the club earlier this season. He claims that the club did not give him the same amount of time to try to succeed as they are now giving current manager Xavi Hernandez.

Club president Joan Laporta made the call to sack Koeman last October, just a couple of months into the current campaign. The club had to shell out a lot of money to pay for the separation and to bring in Xavi, who was employed by Qatari side Al-Sadd at the time.
