He has been such a massive figure, not just for Barcelona and Spain, but for world football at large, especially with respect to reaffirming that passing is king. One of my absolute favorites, even though he never kept the ball to himself for more than a few moments. But then again, that was the whole point. He will be missed sorely.
Wish him all the best for his time at Qatari side Al-Sadd and hope he returns to Nou Camp soon in another role.
