Guardiola praise for Xavi

Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola praised the longevity of midfielder Xavi after he equalled the club record of 549 appearances for the Catalans.

Xavi played in Barcelona's 2-1 win over Levante on Sunday, and Guardiola predicted there are many more matches to come for the 30-year-old.
