One of football history's biggest legends has one clear goal for his future.

Legend Xavi Hernández gave an interview to FourFourTwo magazine in which he stated what Barcelona fans all over the world have been wanting to hear: he wants to return to his lifelong club as a coach.

"My ultimate objective is to coach Barcelona. I’m not hiding that. I want to work again for that house I consider a home."

The eternal Barça captain is one of the smartest minds in the history of the sport, and his work with genius tacticians like Louis Van Gaal and Pep Guardiola will certainly help him when he does become Barça's coach.

But no one can coach the best team in the world without good preparation, and Xavi is doing just that.

"Whenever I have 10 minutes to myself, bang – the football goes on the TV. My wife knows that, and she hates football. I’ll put on La Liga and keep an eye on the Premier League games, too. I’ll study the line-ups, and who’s scored, on my phone."

Luis Enrique should stay at Barça many more years since he is really good at his job. Once he's done, we have a clear candidate for the job: The Maestro.
