During his time as a player at Barcelona, Xavi became one of the best footballers in the world, and will go down as a true legend when he eventually decides to hang up his boots.
Now with Qatari side Al Sadd, the 37-year-old knows he doesn’t have long left on the pitch, but fully intends to move into the dugout at some point in the near future.
During his time at the Nou Camp he won everything there is to win as a player, and there are a fair few fans who would love to see him return and do the same as manager.
As it would happen, there is a managerial vacancy coming up in Catalonia this summer, and in among the names being linked with the job, Xavi finds his right up there despite having no managerial experience under his belt yet.
And while he has admitted that one day he would love to take up the reigns at his former club, he confirmed that he would have to distance himself from the job for the time being because he doesn’t feel like he’s ready to take control yet.
