Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola, has said Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez, is ready to manage the club.

According to him, Xavi has more managerial experience than he did when he took the job.

Guardiola was asked about the prospect of his former team mate being put in charge of the struggling LaLiga side following Ronald Koeman’s sack earlier this week.

“First of all I don’t know what will happen. They have an intermin manager and I wish him luck,” Guardiola told his pre-match press conference, referencing caretaker boss Sergi Barjuan.

“Xavi, if it happens, I don’t have any doubts that he’s ready to do the job. He knows the environment which is so important. He knows the game, he has passion.

“He has more experience now that I had when I took over. If Xavi is the next manager, I wish him all the best and hopefully step by step the team can come back.”
