Barcelona great Xavi has renewed his contract with Al Sadd until 2023.
Although it was first said that his new deal had a clause that would have allowed him to move to Barcelona, Xavi himself has come out to diffuse those claims.
"This is incorrect. I have a two-year contract with Al-Sadd, and I respect this contract, and I also respect the official methods of negotiation between all parties," said Xavi.
Xavi has always been keen to work with the club until 2022 to complete a full cycle as the 2022 World Cup takes place in Qatar.
He has been the head coach of Al Sadd since 2019.
