One of the greatest players to ever pull on a Barcelona shirt, Xavi Hernández has played his final La Liga game for the club, and will head off to see out his career in Qatar. 

During his time with the blaugrana, they have seen unprecedented success, as has the Spanish national team, which is no coincidence. He is a player that has won almost everything in the game from the Champions League to the World Cup, and his incredible class, poise and vision set him apart from the other midfeilders of his generation. 

In tribute to his staggering talent, YouTube user Messi TheBoss put together this compilation that looks back over a career that started in 1997, and picks 50 of his best assists. There are few better ways to spend nearly 12 minutes than admiring a genius like Xavi at work, so sit back and enjoy.

Are there any pieces of skill or brilliance that you think were missing from the compilation?
