Xavi has Thursday his retirement as a professional footballer announced. The 39-year-old icon of FC Barcelona, who for the Qatari Al Sadd comes out, pours itself after this season on a career as a trainer.

“This is my last season as a player, but I look forward to seeing what my future as a coach”, writes Xavi, who is still at least three duels to play in Qatar, in an open letter.

“My philosophy as a trainer reflects the style that we over the years have developed with the influence of Johan Cruyff and La Masía (the youth academy of Barcelona, ed.). I love teams who take the initiative, attack and the ball would have.”
