However, the Catalan giants suffered a humiliating 4-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Super Cup Final on Sunday.

And Barca have dropped to fourth place in LaLiga with eight points separating them and shock leaders Girona.

Xavi is still determined to win either the league or Copa del Rey and still holds out hope for the Champions League.

However, if the 43-year-old finishes the season empty handed he suggested he could leave in June – one year before his deal runs out.

Xavi said: “This year, the objective is to win important titles, the Copa del Rey, LaLiga or the Champions League.

“If the goals are not achieved, I will be the first to say that I did not achieve them and I will leave.”

Xavi admitted he was “embarrassed” and “destroyed” following the Super Cup thrashing to Real.

The former Barca captain did not hold back when he spoke about the performance after the whistle.


Xavi said: “I’m embarrassed. This is not the type of match we should play, especially in a final, and against Madrid.

“As a Barça fan, I am destroyed. I’m sorry for the fanbase.

“We lacked everything. We have to accept criticism. We were not up to par. I want to apologise. Congrats to Real Madrid, a deserved win.

“We can’t start a final like this. We were horrible in the first ten minutes. We had a lot of expectations and motivation for the match. It’s a shame.”
