Xavier “Xavi” Hernández Creus ;(born 25 January 1980) is a Catalan footballer who plays for FC Barcelona as a central midfielder.
Xavi has spent all his footballing life at Barça, having joined the club in July 1991, when he was only 11 years old.
He made rapid progress and in the 97-98 season was promoted from the youth team to Barça B, where he was the central playmaker in Jordi Gonzalvo’s team which won promotion to the second division.
Xavi’s dream of making his official debut with the first team squad came true when he played in the Spanish Super Cup against Mallorca in the summer of 1998. He couldn’t have hoped for a better start, for not only was he in the starting line up, but he also scored. Xavi also played an important role in the league-winning season of 1998-99 with Van Gaal as manager, most notably with an important goal in the Nuevo Zorrilla, which turned round the team’s fortunes.

The German Midfielders

"A team may have the best striker in the world, but if there is no one to supply the right ball to him… then he’s a useless as a football boot without studs. With Germany, the case is different. Their midfielders themselves are so apt at everything they do, that not playing a striker will also leave them unperturbed."
