FC Barcelona legend and current Al-Sadd coach Xavi Hernández has recovered from the coronavirus. The icon posted the news on his personal Instagram account: “I want to share with you that I’m recovered and back home with my family and the Al-Sadd team.”

The 40-year-old announced on Saturday that he had tested positive in the Covid-19 test. Xavi’s recovery process gladly took very short, and now the coach is back to continue managing his team.

Xavi posted a picture of himself holding his daughter, and added: “Thank you so much for all the caring messages that I’ve received during these days.”

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.

The renowned magazine France Football has brought the nominees for the attacking positions for the Ballon d’Or Dream Team lineup to light. The line-up is structured as a 3-4-3, with left-wing, centre-forward, and right-wing positions in the attack. Of the 30 nominees for the offensive positions, ten players have had the opportunity to defend the Blaugranas colours.

List of the ten Barça attackers that are nominated for the Ballon d’Or Dream Team

  • Rivaldo. Left-wing. 1989-2015.
  • Thierry Henry. Left-wing. 1994-2014.
  • Histro Stoichkov. Left-wing. 1982-2003.
  • Ronaldinho. Left-wing. 1998-2015.
  • Johan Cruyff. Centre-forward. 1964-1984.
  • Romário. Centre-forward. 1985-2009.
  • Ronaldo Nazario. 1993-2011.
  • Samuel Eto’o. Right-wing. 1997-2019.
  • Lionel Messi. Right-wing. 2003-2020.
  • Luis Figo. Right-wing. 1990-2009.

Without a doubt, each of the players on the list has played an important role with different stories in the history of FC Barcelona, and all the nominees deserve a place in the team. However, it will be nearly impossible to have a front-three of Barça’s players due to the great competition in each position.

Even though France Football is recognizing the greatness of the aforementioned legends, the magazine has lost huge credibility for Culés, with players like Luis Suárez, Dani Alves, Carles Puyol, and Gerard Piqué failing to receive a nomination for the ‘Dream Team’.
