Xavi's Response To Louis Van Gaal Saying He Was Better Than Zidane Was Simply Brilliant

Xavi's Response To Louis Van Gaal Saying He Was Better Than Zidane Was Simply Brilliant
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Barcelona legend Xavi departed his boyhood club FC Barcelona this weekend after 17 storied seasons in the first-team, and the accumulation of a museum's worth of medals and trophies.

The diminutive midfield maestro is widely regarded as one of the best players ever to play for Spain, and he leaves behind him a career that any aspiring footballer could barely dream of, but his humility makes him a player that nobody really has a bad word to say about.

In an interview with El Pais, Xavi exhibited this humility with a fantastic answer when he was asked about current Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal:

Van Gaal taught me a lot. He told me "You are better than Zidane". I replied: "Thanks coach, but don't exaggerate."

Outstanding.
