Barca players to wear ‘thank you Xavi’ shirts….


Barcelona players will wear special shirts in their final league game of the season to honour Xavi as he ends a 24-year association with the club. The midfielder will get a special send off against Deportivo La Coruna at the Nou Camp on Saturday. Xavi, 35, who will earn his eighth La Liga medal , announced on Thursday that he would leave Barcelona at the end of the season to join Qatari side Al Saad. “I couldn’t have had a better career,” he said. “It was a tough decision.” He could still win this season’s Champions League and the Copa del Rey to add to his 23 club trophies. The former Spain international, who is the most decorated player in the country’s history, has won three Champions Leagues as well as two European Championships and a World Cup. Players will don shirts that will say “Thank you Xavi” before Barcelona celebrate their 23rd La Liga title with Xavi – who joined the club aged 11 – set to lift the trophy.
