In a recent press conference, Xavi was pushed for which Premier League team he would have liked to play for.
The ex-Barça player responded:
“I don’t know, I’ve never thought about it.”
“As I’ve always been a Barcelona person, I never had to think about it. It has always been my top team.”
“To be honest, the Premier League attracts any player. It’s wonderful. The stadiums, the grass, the fans, how they live football. Everything is wonderful.”
“When it comes to the big teams, Chelsea, Manchester United, Man City, Arsenal, Liverpool, teams with history.”
“Either Manchester United or Liverpool. I know that other teams like Man City have emerged more recently, but, Manchester United are my favourite historically speaking.”
