Javier Saviola has backed Xavi Hernandez to coach FC Barcelona.
Xavi came back into the foray of European media news after breaking into the Ballon d’Or team of all time. And his friend, Saviola was happy for the former Spanish midfielder.
“Today is a day of celebration for the Spanish football,” Saviola told Radio MARCA.
“I have not only admired [Xavi] as a football player but also as a friend. What stands out the most is his game vision.
Saviola went on to admire Xavi’s mentality and thinking ability and backed him to become a great coach.
“It seemed that he had a mirror behind him, he always controlled everything that was around him. I think Xavi will end up coaching Barcelona, he has their DNA.
“He is coaching to gain experience and preparing to get to that bench. He will surely choose when and how he returns to Barcelona.”
Barca are currently running through their presidential elections with many candidates vowing to bring back Xavi as a coach should they get elected.
