BarcelonaBarça’s tour of the United States has begun without the coach. Xavi Hernandez has not been able to fly to Miami because the US authorities have not granted him permission to enter the ESTA. Although the club’s workers believed that in principle none of the members of the Barça expedition would have problems entering, in Xavi’s case they have encountered this last-minute surprise. The reason? Xavi visited the Islamic Republic of Iran three times to play Asian Champions League matches when he was a footballer for Qatar’s Al-Sadd.
