FC Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez, who announced his retirement from football recently, has officially been given his first managerial job.
The former Blaugrana midfielder has been appointed manager of Qatari side Al Sadd, whom he played for since leaving Barca in 2015.
Xavi has replaced Jesualdo Ferreira in the club' hot seat, and will now begin his venture into teaching the game many would say he perfected during his prime.
The Spaniard has signed a two-year deal with Al Sadd, as announced by the team's official Twitter account.
Xavi represented Al Sadd 86 times as a player, scoring 22 goals and assisting a further 28 strikes.
