`Messi, Samuel Eto’o and Ronaldinho. I wish I had them in the squad but I can’t. I’m close friends with Messi. He texted me to wish me luck. I also wish the same for him. Messi

Messi played with Xavi for 11 years, from 2004 to 2015, before the 41-year-old former midfielder went to Qatar to play.

Xavi is the second most played player for the home team at Camp Nou with 767 matches, only less than Messi’s record of 778 matches.

Xavi’s return is compared to Pep Guardiola, who led Barca in 2008 when he was only 37 years old.

In fact, not everyone who returns to their old coach is as successful as Guardiola or Zinedine Zidane.

Regarding Barca’s playing style, he said: `We understand that football is a positional game. Barca cannot change the style of play. We want to press high and win the ball in the opponent’s half. We want to play with a strong team.

Xavi was born in the city of Terrassa, Catalonia in 1980. He played for the Terrassa academy since he was four years old, and moved to Barca at the age of 11.

In 2015, Xavi moved to Al Sadd, before retiring at the age of 39. He led Al Sadd immediately after hanging up his boots, helping the team win seven titles.
