Presidential candidate Victor Font has revealed his plans to appoint Xavi as Barcelona's next head coach.
However, at a time when he will fight for the chief role at the Catalan giants, Font has claimed that he will not waste any time in bringing Xavi back to Camp Nou.
Speaking to El Larguero, Font said: "Even if Koeman has a great season, I will not change my plans. If I become president, Koeman will not be the coach of Barca in the 2021-22 season.
"Xavi understands that all the puzzles in the club must be put together. Who will lead the team will be decided by the board of directors, in our case it will be him.
"[Lionel] Messi is completely disappointed because of the critical situation at the club both in sports, and in economic and organisational terms. I expect that Messi will play under Xavi in 2021."
Xavi is currently in charge of Qatari club Al-Sadd.
