Former Barcelona captain Xavi says he misses being around the club after leaving the La Liga outfit at the end of last season.
Xavi, a Barcelona academy graduate, ended his 25-year association with the Catalans in 2015 after signing with Qatari club Al Sadd.
However, after almost a year away from Spain, Xavi revealed he is missing Barca.
“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].”
Xavi admitted a career in coaching could be on the cards once he hangs up his boots.
“Coaching is something you have to feel, and I am starting to feel it,” he said.
“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.”
