Barcelona legend Xavi has been talking about his former club and how he thinks Germany boss Joachim Low would be a good fit for the Catalan giants.

Low confirmed at the start of the month that he would be stepping down from his post with Die Mannschaft after this summer’s European Championship.

The 61-year-old has been in his job for 15 years, winning the World Cup in 2014, and Xavi feels his Germany side is similar in style to Barcelona.

“He was a luxury coach. He wants sparkle and attacking football, and he is a world champion. Low has helped Germany develop a different understanding of football that reminds me a lot of what I know from Spain and Barcelona.

“[He would be a good fit for Barcelona] because of his way of understanding the game and because of his personality.”

There have been rumors recently that Low has been taking Spanish lessons and could end up in La Liga next, although Ronald Koeman is currently expected to continue at Barcelona for another season.
