On This Day – Xavi Born

25-1-1980. Barcelona and Spain’s midfield playmaker Xavi was born on this day in 1980.

FourFourTwo magazine rated him as the third best player on the planet behind team mates David Villa and Lionel Messi and described him in these terms:

The best midfielder in modern footballer passed with the precision of Platini, topped the La Liga assists table with laser-guided through-balls and chipped in with crucial goals. He may have given the ball away once, but we don’t remember it. Xavi’s consistency was a key factor in Spain’s World Cup win.”
