Ronald Koeman sacked by Barcelona after Vallecano defeat and offers job to Xavi.
The Blaugrana have announced the dismissal of Ronald Koeman from the managerial position after a horrid start to the new campaign.
Barca has dropped down to ninth in the La Liga table collecting just 15 points from the last 10 games.
The Catalan giants are currently looking for a replacement and it is understood that Xavi has been offered the job.
Xavi is currently with Al Sadd and apparently has an exit clause with the Qatar side.
They are also struggling in the Champions League this season and the club felt that a change is needed immediately.
