Messi, Iniesta, Puyol & Busquets pay homage to ‘Xavi 700′ after maestro’s Barcelona milestone [Video]
Barcelona have paid tribute to their living legend Xavi with a video montage, in which key team members pay homage to little Humphrey Bogart with personal messages.
The messages are set against the backdrop of Xavi’s best moments in a Barcelona shirt, from his debut goal to a Clasico lob 13 years later.
Iniesta begins by lauding Xavi as a leader and a ‘footballing reference’, i.e. a role model.
‘He’s got a gift, he’s always ahead of the game, ahead of what’s happening.’
Puyol takes over saying, ‘for me Xavi’s one of the best in the world, a key player
Messi says it’s a ‘locura’ (crazy) to think he’s made it to 700 games. So many years, so many games, and he keeps going. It was an honour for me to be able to share the 2010 Balon D’Or with Xavi.’
Watch Iniesta, Puyol, Busquets and Messi pay homage to midfield maestro ‘Xavi 700′ on the clip below.
