Xavi: I want to be FC Barcelona manager

FC Barcelona midfielder Xavi has his sights set on the manager’s job after he retires from the Catalan giants.

The Spanish international, 34, spoke to ex-Liverpool player Jamie Carragher about his desire to stay on as manager at the club he has spent his entire career at.

“I’d like to remain in football forever and it would always have to be with Barcelona. That’s where my heart and feelings are,” he said.

Although retirement isn’t on his mind just yet, as he helped Barcelona overcome Manchester City in the Champions League knock-out stage last night, winning 4-1 on aggregate.

With 700 appearances and 22 trophies under his belt, the playmaker is still focused on playing, with Barcelona still in the hunt for the league title and the Champions League. There is also the small matter of the world cup on the horizon.

“Right now I love to play football. When you’re a kid playing, you enjoy having the ball, don’t you? All I ever want to do is have the ball at my feet, bossing the game,” he added.
