Xavi Quotes

— Xavi

2. “I pass and I move, I help you, I look for you, I stop, I raise my head, I look and, above all, I open up the pitch…The one who has the ball is the master of the game…That’s the school of Joan Vilà, of Albert Benaiges, of Johan Cruijff, of Pep Guardiola.”
— Xavi

3. “Some teams can’t or don’t pass the ball. What are you playing for? What’s the point? That’s not football. Combine, pass, play. That’s football – for me, at least.”
— Xavi

4. “There are two types of football – there’s physical football and football talent.”

— Xavi

12. “I’ve no regrets at all, but I still think at times that I would have loved to play in England. You live football over there; it’s a great culture. People respect you more; it’s more difficult to find respect in Spain. There is more criticism here.”
— Xavi

13. “To me Paul is a role model. He is the best midfielder I’ve seen in the last 15 or 20 years.”
— Xavi

14. “The way I see it, Messi is the best player in history. He is the one who changes the course of games; he’s the best. There is no comparison in my view; he’s the world’s number one and by a margin.”

15. “Iniesta is easily Spain’s most complete player. He has everything.”

— Xavi

17. “I liked the Paul Ince and Roy Keane partnership Manchester United had. They would have been my team had I moved to England.”
— Xavi

— Xavi

19. “I think Barcelona and the Spanish national team have been good for soccer because there are a lot of teams that come up playing from the back: with the goalie, the defense, moving up a defender to midfield, playing attacking soccer. I think fans want to see that. They want to see beautiful soccer, a spectacle, and Barcelona does that.”
— Xavi
