Former Barcelona star Xavi: I've recovered from coronavirus

Barcelona great Xavi tested positive for COVID-19, which meant he could not coach Al Sadd in their weekend game, but now he is well again.

Xavi has recovered from coronavirus and is back at work with Al Sadd, the former Barcelona star has announced.

The 40-year-old confirmed on Saturday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and was spending time away from his Qatari club.

It meant he missed out on coaching the team in their Stars League clash with Al Khor, but Xavi is well again, he declared on Instagram.

The former Spain midfielder, who has been frequently linked with a Camp Nou return as a potential successor to head coach Quique Setien, posted pictures of himself both back at work and at home with his children.

In a post published on Wednesday, Xavi thanked followers for their "caring messages" since announcing he had coronavirus, adding: "I want to share with you that I'm recovered and back home with my family and the @alsaddsc team".

In a separate Instagram post, Al Sadd also showed Xavi on club duty, wearing a face mask as he welcomed new signing Rodrigo Tabata to the club.
