Former Barcelona captain Xavi Hernandez was impressed by Manchester City and Real Betis more than any others last season.
Currently at Qatari club Al Sadd, the former Spain international did not mention his former club among the sides whose style of play he enjoyed the most.
“Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have impressed me the most from all the teams last season,” Xavi told an interview with Diario AS.
“They have played extraordinary football and have also been getting results, so I would need to say them but there are others teams too.
“For example, the Real Betis of Quique Setien have been hugely impressive too and they have played in a way which I have really enjoyed.”
