After several months of warnings, already is a reality, Xavi Hernández has initiated a new stage in his life like trainer. The midfield player hanged the boots this Monday with a To the-Sadd to the that will head to to split of this moment, and has very clear his aims in another speciality futbolística in which it does not put limits. His ambition has not diminished neither an apex.

The one of Terrassa has conceded a lot of interviews in the last days, and in one of his conversations with the newspaper 'Sport', has valued the challenge to the that now confronts . After signalling that his stay in Qatar has served him to learn a more relaxed way to live the sport, has aimed that it does not leave to think in big, because although the first steps of his career in the benches was protected in the emirate, goes him touch be under the lupa.

Questioned by the possible comparisons with Pep Guardiola, the Catalan has been rotundo: "Already I know it and it does not scare me. It happened me like player and was not easy neither will be it when it go back. I know the expectations that there is. I follow all what happens in Barcelona and there was a survey in the web of 'Sport' that said that it was of the favourites to go back to the bench of the Barça already. Man! I appreciate it, but it is incongruous. I need an experience".

"It would try to do it very well but it is not the moment. Like this I'm sorry because I begin of zero. Imagine you that begin the career of engineer and give you to do the tunnels of Vallvidrera. It is the same. It can not be. I need a base, an experience, that do not have", has commented on a possible offer to go back to the Camp Nou. His plans, for the moment, go by a very distinct way.

"Qatar wants that it follow here until the World-wide, that help them somehow. We will see how I am of ready but also will depend on how see me in Can Barça. We will see. I do not hide that my aim is the Barça. I think that can do it well like trainer because had grandmasters", has reflexionado, repeating, once again, that the return to the City Condal is something that is in his diary to half-long term.

"They compared me with Guardiola like player and was not easy, and neither will be it when it go back to the Barça"

Far to see it like a dream, Xavi assumes that it is in a reality near at hand of his hand: "Now no longer they are dreams of boy, but is an aim because I say me, 'Have had the luck to be where have been, with the best trainers from Go Gaal, Saez, Camacho, Aragonese, Pep, Luis Enrique... With the best formadores like Joan Vilà, with the school of the Barça, with some concepts assimilated and now want to transmit them'. I think in my team of the next year, in how do it better, in improving to the players. I have to do it and I think that I can transmit things to the people".

The egarense has recognised also that keeps the contact with Pep Guardiola: "Yes. We write us messages regularly. The past year, in summer, saw us. Now it would like me see it again. It is the best of the world in the way that I see the football. I begin a new stage, have doubts and want to pose them. It is a person with which have had a lot of connection. Like trainer was really very special".

And it has recalcado that the one of Santpedor and Luis Aragonese are his two main referents. For the already ex player, this way to think treaded mixes in the tactical with Guardiola, and in the personal, in the way to manage the group, the feelings and the feelings of his mates, with the Madrilenian, with the one who shared changing room in the Spanish selection.

"If some day train to the Barça is with all the consequences knowing that I will be court and that this club is a crusher. All want to be in a big team. More comfortable would be to go to a second but am competitive and like me the big challenges. I know what will come, will remain me calvo or with the peel white but is what there is", has kidded to close the interview.

Xavi would be loved to head to Messi

To Xavi also have asked after him a presumptive conflict with the directive and by the possibility to train to Leo Messi, and has sincerado on his thoughts: "If of something boast, and said it in my farewell, is that I do not have enemies. I am like this. With Bartomeu and his board do not have bad relation. I am very appreciated to them. If they proposed me renew when it went me! I do not have at all in his against".

"To Leo consider him a fellow. It would not have neither a problem with him. Neither one. It would be the first with which would speak if it was in the Barça. It is a person that goes very of face. It goes always ahead. It is very direct and honest. Have become friends with he. Train it would be a privilege", has valued, explaining that it would be loved if they went back to coincide in the City Condal.
