Xavi Hernández Creus was one of the best footballers to ever grown on the Masia. His debut on August 18, 1998 under Louis Van Gaal was the beginning of a nearly two-decade career in the first team. Xavi is the player with more matches in the history of the club with 767. The Catalan, despite having a premature debut, at the age of 19 began to be a regular in Barça’s midfield, becoming one of the best midfielders in the world and for many, one of the best in history. Xavi was decisive throughout his career and the success of the Rijkaard, Guardiola and Luis Enrique teams cannot be understood without his participation. Neither the success of the Spain National Team where Xavi was one of the captains during the achievement of Euro 2008, World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012. The midfielder is one of the few players who has been part of 4 of the 5 Champions Leagues the club has won. In the European competition, Xavi is in third place on the podium of players with the most matches in history. In 2009, 2010 and 2011 he finished third in the FIFA Ballon d'Or, only surpassed by Cristiano and his teammate Leo Messi who won those three awards in a row. In 2010 the podium of this award was occupied by Xavi, Messi and Iniesta, all three from the Masia. In 2015 he left the club after winning the second treble in history and became a player of the Qatari Al-Sadd, where he would later become head coach. He was awarded with the FCB Players Award on 2012 and 2013.
