5. Xavi

It's virtually impossible to mention Iniesta without talking about his midfield teammate Xavi, who has also been incredibly important for Barcelona and Spain over the past decade.

Few players in history have possessed equal vision to Xavi, who often completes matches with successful pass completion stats above 95%.

He continues to make both Barcelona and Spain tick - and you can almost guarantee that he'll emulate Guardiola by becoming a successful coach after hanging up his boots.
