Xavi to leave Barcelona….


Barcelona’s captain Xavi Hernandez will leave the club he has served since boyhood for Qatari side Al Sadd at the end of this season, his father has announced. The 35-year-old midfielder is a stalwart of the Catalan side over recent years and one of the heroes of Spain’s Euro and World Cup-winning squads. His father Joaquin Hernandez told the Cope radio station Xavi had decided “the moment has come to say goodbye”. “He is lucky to have received a really impressive offer from Al Sadd where he can continue playing football, train as a future coach and also rest a little,” he added.
