Xavi Has Recorded 65 Assists In 100 Appearances For Al-Sadd
Xavi is only a few months away from turning 39 but he's still doing the absolute business.
Yes, the Barcelona legend may only be playing in Qatar for Al-Sadd, where he is the club's captain, but his record is nothing short of superb.
He played his 100th game for the club in the Asian Champions League semi-final first leg defeat to Persepolis of the Islamic Republic of Iran and registered his 65th assist - a quite sublime feat considering his age and the fact he's never really been viewed as an attacking midfielder.
Xavi, who came right through the Barcelona academy and captained the side, went on to win 25 honours for the club and even captained his beloved Blaugrana.
One of the most technically intelligent footballers to play the game, he made the switch to Al-Sadd in 2015 and though the standard is clearly a lot lower, the World Cup winner hasn't slowed down - with Mundial11.com also saying he has scored 22 goals in "all local and AFC competitions".
His club teammate, Baghdad Bounedjah, is also in a stunning vein of form by Al-Sadd. He's notched a seriously impressive 40 goals over the year, which is more than both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have managed.
