RB Leipzig and Spain midfielder Dani Olmo says he would like to play under current FC Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez one day.

The former Barcelona youth player, who has been linked with a return to the Catalan giants, told Mundo Deportivo:

"I want to be coached by the best coaches in the world.

"Xavi was one of the best as a player and could become one of the best coaches too. We will hopefully see."

RB Leipzig paid €29 million to sign Olmo from Dinamo Zagreb in January 2020. He has gone on to feature 106 times for the Bundesliga club, racking up 19 goals and 22 assists.
