The Spanish midfielder played his final league game for the Catalan giants in their 2-2 draw with Getafe, and was brought to tears after the match as the team were celebrating their league title.

However, the Chelsea manager had nothing but praise for Xavi, who confirmed he will be joining Qatari side, Al Sadd.

"Xavi is one of the world's best players over the past decade and he deserves to win what he will never have - a Ballon d'Or success," Mourinho told reporters.
 
Mourinho also added his opinion about the UEFA Champions League final, involving Barcelona and Juventus.
 
"Barcelona and Juventus both deserve to be in Berlin," he added.
 
"They had good seasons and proved to be far superior to the teams they faced in the semi-finals".
