Andres Iniesta added to the messages of other former team-mates of Xavi in saying that he is the perfect coach to take on the club.
The Vissel Kobe player told BeIN Sports that the Catalan is ready to take the reins at Barcelona.
“Xavi fits perfectly, that’s for sure. Not just because of what he knows about the club or the place, but because he’s prepared for it. That’s the most important thing, not for what Xavi represents but as a coach and how he’s ready to take on this challenge.
“I wish him all the luck in the world and I’m convinced he’ll be good because he has prepared for this moment and is very excited to be able to take it on.
“I hope that he has the circumstances to gain success. I wish him the best. For him as a team-mate, for Barca, for the club, of course.”
