Xavi Names Top Premier League Clubs He Would Love To Coach
Legendary Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has listed the Premier League clubs he would love to manage if he ever move to England.
Xavi, 40, dreams of managing Barcelona but hailed the Premier League’s “atmosphere, packed stadiums” and players as an exciting alternative.
“Also, [Jurgen] Klopp and [Mauricio] Pochettino and Unai Emery, many people who have gone there are doing an extraordinary job.”
The 133-cap icon said of his former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiol: “Pep Guardiola is the best coach in the world and I am a novice.
“The comparison happened as a player but now we can’t be compared. I am in love with Pep Guardiola’s football.
“You can win playing football in different ways but I like the one of City and Guardiola the most. I follow the Premier League a lot and I like it.
“He is a brilliant, demanding, passionate, obsessive person, that’s why he’s doing so well.
“It transmits a lot to the footballer. I learned a lot and enjoyed my time at his side.”
Xavi won four Champions League titles and La Liga eight times with Barca.
And he readily admits the Spanish giants would be his first choice once he has served his managerial apprenticeship.
He said: “I don’t hide it, my goal is to return to Europe and return to Barca.
“It is my challenge ahead, but I’m still learning in this project and I’m also enjoying it.”
