Who are Xavi's coaching team at Barcelona?
Barcelona have now confirmed who will be among head coach Xavi Hernandez's backroom staff.
The Barca legend agreed to take on the vacant role after the departure of Ronald Koeman last month.
He enjoyed a trophy-laden spell in Qatar but the difficulty of this job will put his managerial skills to the test.
That's because Koeman's struggles leave the club in ninth place in La Liga, already 11 points off first-place Real Sociedad at this early stage.
This has left Xavi with plenty of work to do to return La Blaugrana to the top of the table.
And as such, in the last few days, he has been working hard to assemble the best possible coaching team in order to make his return to the club a success.
Who are Xavi's staff?
Xavi has turned to former club Al-Sadd in taking his brother Oscar Hernandez as well as Sergio Alegre, who will act as assistants.
Jose Ramon De la Fuente, a goalkeeping coach, remains from Koeman's regime.
Ivan Torres has been handed the role of fitness coach, working under Albert Roca - already at the club.
And the physio department is a key area that Xavi will look to strengthen, as injuries have taken a huge toll on the squad in recent years, with Ousmane Dembele the best example.

David Prats, Toni Lobo and Sergio Garcia have also been welcomed to Camp Nou as analysts.
All of the new members of staff have agreed on contracts and are ready to work with the team as soon as possible.
Barcelona face local rivals Espanyol on November 20, leaving Xavi plenty of time to work on a strategy to secure his first victory.
