Total years: 18
Honors: FIFA World Cup, Club World Cup, UEFA Champions League, Liga BBVA Titles
Xavi Hernandez was such a player who would simply love to pass the ball around, and do nothing else. He was a deep lying playmaker and spent his entire footballing career with Barcelona. He’s known for his high precision in one touch passing, or tiki-taka passing as they call now. It could be argued that since he plays for Al Sadd now, his name shouldn’t be included in the countdown.But considering that he’s given his best years of his footballing career towards Barcelona, he deserves the 7th spot in our countdown.
