I would be very thrilled to coach in the Premier League – Xavi

2 min read

FC Barcelona legend Xavi has said he would “be thrilled” to manage in the Premier League one day, while admitting he once turned down a move to Manchester United as a player.

Xavi is the current manager of Qatari club Al-Sadd, managing the likes of ex-Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla and Ghanian forward Andre Ayew.

The Spaniard has watched his former boss Pep Guardiola have huge success as Manchester City boss and is keen to emulate the 50-year-old.

“I would be thrilled to work there,” he told The Times.

“Everyone tells me that the Premier League is wonderful, a great league to work in. First of all, for the passion with how they live the game. How they treat and respect you, the atmosphere and the stadiums.

“So why not? I could see myself in England, definitely, it’s one of the things I’d like to experience in my career.”

The 41-year-old has also revealed that he could have made the move to England much earlier in his career.

He added: “Manchester United approached me once through Sir Alex Ferguson’s brother, but my answer was very quick.

“I was focused on Barca, my priority was only Barca. I am a fan from the very inside of myself and that’s why it was impossible for me to leave.”

Xavi is regarded as one of the best central midfielders of all time, winning a plethora of trophies during his time playing at the Nou Camp.

He won 19 domestic trophies alongside four Champions League titles with Barcelona.

The Al-Sadd boss also won the 2010 World Cup and back-to-back European Championships with Spain in 2008 and 2012 during one of the greatest spells in international football history.
