Xavi the pass master

Postby Bren10 » Sun Mar 04, 2012 4:08 pm

Xavi Hernandez is the passing king of the leading European football leagues – England, Italy, Germany, France and Spain – with 1553 completed passes in the opponents' half. As well as Xavi, the top five in this particular ranking feature Leo Messi (1351 passes), Xabi Alonso (1271), Dani Alves (1215) and Mikel Arteta (1207). That makes three out of five for Barça.

However, Xavi Hernandez not only leads the way when it comes to passes in the opposing half. He also tops the ranking in all completed passes with 2139, the only player to pass the 2000 mark. As such he's well ahead of Xabi Alonso (1985), Andrea Pirlo (1925), Philipp Lahm (1896) and Mikel Arteta (1804).

Quite the achievement, any comments?

With this years Euro 2012 win Xavi has become Spains most successful player with 23 titles, overtaking Paco Gento. He is also one ahead of Iniesta.

When I look at the amount of trophies Xavi has won its just staggering. For me personally he ranks as one of the top midfielders ever. It's a shame that we are seeing him come to the end of his career now.
