The former Barcelona legend is finishing his stellar career in the Middle East and has reached a preliminary agreement with Al Sadd to continue for two more seasons, according to the club’s general manager, Turki Al Ali.
Al-Ali: "A primary agreement is in place with #Xavi to continue with Al-Sadd for the next two seasons but we haven't determined what his role will be. He could continue as a player or he could have a different role, which will be announced soon."#AlSadd— AlSadd Sports Club (@AlsaddSC) March 20, 2018
Xavi can still hoist silverware by winning the Asian Champions League, in which Al Sadd are leaders in the group stage, joint-leaders with Persepolis after the first four games.
However, as indicated by the club’s announcement on Twitter, Xavi may transition into a coaching a role, whether that be as an assistant or replacement of Jesualdo Ferreira.
Al-Ali: "Ferreira is an excellent coach. His contract runs until the end of the season. Whether he continues or not is in the hands of the club president and the team management."#AlSadd— AlSadd Sports Club (@AlsaddSC) March 20, 2018
