Xavier Llorens

Coach

A veteran with decades of experience at the Club, he has been in charge of the women’s team since 2006

Xavi Llorens Rodríguez was born in Barcelona on June 5, 1958 and made his name as a futsal player at various teams, including Barça. He began his coaching career at the Club in the futsal section before being given a chance in the youth football system in the later 1980s by Johan Cruyff.

For almost two decades he dedicated himself to the development of future blaugrana players, one of whom was none other than Leo Messi.

In 2006 Xavi Llorens  assumed the reins of the women’s team and kick started a revolution. Initially, it was not easy - relegation in his first year in charge was a setback. However, Llorens lifted the side with his inspirational leadership and soon they were on an upward trajectory which has culminated with the Barça Women’s team winning four league titles and three cups in the last five years.

Llorens is also technical secretary of the FC Barcelona women’s team and is involved in fresh challenges, such as consolidating the professionalisation of the section - initiated in the summer of 2015 - and situating the team amongst the elite of Europe.
