Xavi Hernandez

Xavi Hernandez has not been able to travel with the rest of the Barcelona squad to the United States and has had to stay in Catalonia due to administrative problems with his documentation.

The reason is that the Barcelona coach had been in Iran as an Al Sadd player. When someone has been in that country he cannot freely enter the United States and needs a special permit.

On Friday afternoon, the club tried to solve the problem and in fact they managed to do so. The surprise was when they arrived at the airport at departure time and saw that the computer system did not give the green light for the trip.

They tried to fix it but it was not possible and they will not be able to do so until first thing Monday morning.

Therefore, Xavi will arrive on Monday evening in the United States. He will be able to lead the last training session before the first match against Inter Miami on Tuesday.
