Xavi To End Footballing Career At Barcelona

Barcelona midfielder, Xavi Hernandez plans to see out his career at his current club, Barcelona. He joined the side at the age of eleven and hopes to retire there. Speaking to FIFA.com , the player who has featured over 700 times for the Spanish side had this to say:

“I’d love to hang up my boots at Barcelona and stay involved with the club, which I think is the best in the world, for many years,” 

“I’ve felt that way since I was a boy and still feel the same today. I’d like to still be at Barcelona when I retire, but I know how demanding it is.”

The seven-time La Liga winner says he is still enjoying playing for both club and country, and hopes to continue for as long as possible.

“I’m genuinely enjoying myself, both with Barcelona and the national team,” added Xavi.

“Playing football is what I’m passionate about, what I enjoy doing most. All I can do is put in the effort, keep looking at myself and listening to my body, and see how long I can keep going.”
