Taling to Marca, former Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas revealed his message to Xavi before the 41-year-old’s appointment at Barcelona became official.
“I talked to him. I told him to quit Instagram and stop the social media things and dedicate himself to training.
In our generation, there were many players who wanted to be coaches,” Casillas said jokingly, as quoted El Espanol.
Casillas and Xavi are known to be best friends, so it’s only normal that they make such jokes.
Of course, the former Real Madrid goalkeeper had positive things to say as well.
“Xavi is the clearest example of someone who wanted to be a coach.
I am not surprised that he is now Barcelona’s coach.
You could already see him on our national team trips.”
