Xavi: Why I Miss Barcelona

Former Spain international Xavi Hernandez has admitted that he misses life at FC Barcelona.

Messi's Longest Goal Drought Since 2010

The La Masia graduate ended his 25-year association with the Catalan club in 2015, when he signed for Qatari club Al-Sadd, and the former Blaugrana captain has now revealed that he misses the atmosphere at the Camp Nou, among other things.

"I miss the dressing room of FC Barcelona, the jokes, the circle and the level of football," the 36-year-old told Movistar+.

"Barcelona is the best club in the world and the only ones who are close to them are Bayern (Munich)."

The 2010 FIFA World Cup winner also suggested that a career in coaching could be on the cards once he hangs up his boots, but insisted that there is no retirement date planned just yet.

"Coaching is something you have to feel, and I am starting to feel it," he added.

"And I like to be on the pitch, on the grass. But I am still a player.

"Everyone progresses at their own time, and I want to be a footballer for at least two more years, for as long as my body holds up."

Hazard Comments On Real Rumours

The midfielder made 743 senior appearances for Barcelona, scoring 84 goals and assisting a further 164 strikes.
