Xavi has named the Premier League teams he would like to manage one day but did not mention Liverpool.
The Spanish World Cup winner is the current boss of Qatari side Al Sadd and has been linked with taking over at Barcelona.
But when asked whether he would like to manage a team in the Premier League he only left out Premier League champions Liverpool.
Xavi was also highly complimentary of his former coach and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
He said: 'Pep Guardiola is the best coach in the world and I am a novice.
'The comparison happened as a player but now we can't be compared. I am in love with Pep Guardiola's football.
'You can win playing football in different ways but I like the one of City and Guardiola the most. I follow the Premier League a lot and I like it.'
Xavi is the player almost all Barcelona supporters want but he has already said he will not return under the present regime.
