FC Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez said on Friday that he had agreed a new contract with the club, reported Xinhua.

Speaking to the press ahead of Saturday's La Liga game at home to Celta Vigo, Xavi was asked about his new deal and rumors that he was close to extending his stay at the club until June 2025.

"The contract renewal was agreed several days ago and it will be announced soon," responded the coach.

"We came here in a difficult moment and in adverse circumstances, but we have worked well, everyone from the President [Joan Laporta], the sporting area and the staff."

"Last season we won two important titles [La Liga and Spanish Super Cup], but we are in a process of construction and this season will be the confirmation of that," continued Xavi.

"I feel strong, I have the support of the president and the players are enjoying themselves," he added.
