Swansea ace Britton laughs off Xavi comparison

Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton has laughed off comparisons with Barcelona star Xavi.

The former West Ham United man's pass completion record of 92 per cent has seen him bracketed with the likes of Barcelona duo Andres Iniesta and Xavi, but Britton is typically modest when asked to assess his season.

"The stats have all come out this season," he said.

"It's gone well this year, but we have found as a club that in the Premier League stats are thrown at you from all angles and obviously with our style it has been the passing stats.

"But there is no comparison with me and Xavi, you can't mention me in the same bracket."
