Xavi and Alves met when the Brazilian arrived at the Barcelona club in the summer of 2008. Both coincided in the Catalan team’s dressing room as players from then until 2015, when Xavi left. In 2022, they became part of Barcelona again at the same time. This time, with Xavi as a coach and Alves as a footballer.
