Here we go: Barcelona boss Xavi “Sacked” two physio hired by Ronald Koeman

Xavi has wasted no time in making significant changes at Barcelona after he reportedly sacked two members of club’s physio department in one of his first decisions as the new manager.

The legendary midfielder was finally appointed as Barcelona’s new boss at the weekend

However, before being officially unveiled to 10,000 supporters at the Nou Camp.

However, all is not well at the Catalan club with their ongoing injury crisis causing rifts between players and staff behind the scenes.

It has been reported that players are getting fed up with the alarming amount of injuries

And are beginning to point the blame for the growing list of injuries on the club’s fitness coaches

Believing their problems began in pre-season and have continued since.

And in the time since his appointment, Xavi has got wind of these heated arguments and has decided to take action

Telling physio Juanjo Brau and physical trainer Albert Roca, who arrived with Ronald Koeman

That they are no longer needed at the club, according to AS.

The report goes on to claim that Xavi will bring Jaume Munill and Ricard Pruna back to the club

To help solve the club’s ongoing injury crisis, given how the pair have previously worked at the Nou Camp.

Xavi has already discussed the issue with sporting director Mateu Alemany

Has even talked about making personnel changes in the physio department in an attempt to get the club back on track.

Pruna worked for Barca for 25 years but left the club in September 2020 and now works in Dubai.

Alemany, meanwhile, is said to be concerned about injuries being wrongly diagnosed

As well as players not recovering properly from issues and suffering relapses.

The most common problem afflicting the squad right now are muscle injuries

Which have sidelined Pedri, Ousmane Dembele, Sergi Roberto, Nico Gonzalez, Gerard Pique, Eric Garcia and Ansu Fati.
