Ex Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez extends contract

Xavi Hernandez

Former Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has agreed two year-extension with Qatar side Al Sadd.

Xavi joined Al Sadd in 2015 after an illustrious career in Spain, the midfielder looks set to finish his playing days over in Qatar. And now with two additional seasons to add to his belt, the player could soon be entering management, either as an assistant to current Al Sadd coach, Jesualdo Ferreira or as his replacement.

At the age of 38, many pundits believe that Xavi will be looking to hang his boots up at the end of this season. However, if Al Sadd continues in the Asian Champions League and reaches the final, this could mean playing up until November.

Currently, the club is the leaders in the group stage of the competition, with progression to the next round looking increasingly likely. When the competition ends, it will be decision day and Xavi will have to decide on his next path in football.
