Barca legend Xavi confirms retirement plans, targets coaching career

Posted by Ezeudoye Samuel on November 09, 2017


The four-time Champions League winner says he is in the "last year" of a stunningly successful career and will hang up his boots in 2018

Barcelona legend Xavi has revealed his intention to retire from football at the end of the season.

And the World Cup winner, who joined Qatari side Al Sadd in 2015, is plotting an immediate transition into coaching.

The 37-year-old has enjoyed an incredible career since breaking through as a teenager at Barca, where he won La Liga eight times and the Champions League on four occasions.

He also earned 133 caps for Spain between 2000 and 2014, winning the European Championship in 2008 - at which he was named player of the tournament - and the World Cup in 2010.

"I've had luck not to be injured and I think my career has come towards its end," Xavi told Spanish newspaper Sport.

"There's been a descent. Qatar allowed me this. Now I see myself being more tired, it's harder to recover, it will surely be my last year of being a footballer.

"I have the idea of getting my coaching license next year and being a coach."

Xavi won the Qatar Cup with Al Saad in April, his first trophy in the country.
