Xavi arrives in Barcelona ahead of Camp Nou return

New Barcelona coach Xavi has touched down in Spain for his emotional return to Camp Nou.

After a deal with his former side Al-Sadd was reached on Friday, Barcelona were kind enough to wait until the early hours of Saturday morning before confirming Xavi as their head coach.

Shortly after the announcement, Xavi hopped on a flight from Qatar to Spain, and SPORT captured the moment he touched down in his homeland.

He arrived alongside assistants Oscar Hernandez, Sergi Alegre, coach Ivan Torres and analysts David Prats, Toni Lobo and Sergio Garcia. Physiotherapist Carlos Nogueira joins at a later date.
