Barcelona midfielder Xavi has Hernandez hinted that he would have liked a move to Liverpool.

The Spanish World Cup winner has been instrumental in transforming Barca into one of the most lauded teams in football history and has spent his entire career at the Nou Camp.

However, the 31-year-old believes that the fervent support of fans in England is far superior to that in Spain and, although having experienced it on Champions League nights, Xavi has revealed he would have found it 'wonderful' to play compete in England every week.


One specific encounter at Anfield will live long in the memory of the diminutive playmaker, who has admitted to being overwhelmed by the response from the Liverpool faithful.

"I have never seen anything like the supporters there. We won 3-1 at Liverpool once and we were applauded off the pitch, and Liverpool were as well," he told the Daily Mail of his trip to Anfield in 2001.

"All the players who go to England to play come back saying wonderful things about it, the fans, the people. I think I would have liked it."
