Xavi Retires

Recommended Posts

Retired in 2015 for me, but now officially retired. 

Arguably the greatest orchestrating midfielder the world has seen. 

“Xavi changed football. He helped us to build, or to see, a new player profile that ended up running through all levels of the national team. He killed off the myth of physicality being above all else and opened people’s eyes to the qualities of small, technical players, proving that you can attack and also defend with the ball. There are lots of players who win things, but few who lay down concepts, ideas, who change the way we think, and Xavi did that.”  Julen Lopetegui

I reckon he'd make the perfect manager for Barcelona in the near future personally. He knows exactly what is required.

I think it's to everyone's benefit if we just ignore the stain of the last 4 years of his career. 

That being said, I look forward to seeing if he gets into management.
