In terms of playmaking ability, Xavi was a bit more talented than the Real Madrid and Liverpool legend. However, Xabi Alonso showed his class in three four different leagues.

Talking about the football world, Jordi Alba has revealed about the condition of Barcelona and his fans when Lionel Messi left his boyhood club.

“Messi is the best player I have ever met. It would be great if he came back to Barça,” he said. “I suffered a lot when he left. Yes, I want to play with him again, but here at Barça, not at PSG.”

“Leaving to PSG after a full life at Barcelona cost Messi a lot and also the Barça fans, but it’s football. It’s hard to see him in another shirt, but he’s still the best in the world. He’s got a lot of football left and I’m sure next year he’ll be much better and I’m not saying this because he’s my friend,” he added.
