Iniesta tended to attract more attention but imo Xavi was better, never seen anyone control a game as easily or as often as he seemed to, always seemed to have more time then anyone else and see things before anyone else.
His passing stats are utterly insane, always thought of 80% to be a decent accuracy.
Xavi's average over his entire career is over 90%.
Best cm I've ever seen imo, an all time great.
Wonder if he will be remembered that way
Certain to be remembered as one of the best of his generation, but off all time?
