Spanish football legend, Xavi has announced he won’t be able to feature in the Catalonia Vs Venezuela game scheduled for Monday.
The former Barcelona star took a u-turn from an earlier announcement that he would be coming out of retirement to feature in the game.
Xavi is being held back by his Saudi Arabia club Al Sadd.
He wrote on Instagram: ‘I regret to announce that finally, I will not be able to be in Montilivi for tomorrow’s Catalonia-Venezuela.
‘My commitments with my club did not allow it. I hope next time I can be there with you.
‘In Qatar, you will have the first of your fans cheering our team.’
Xavi, who played over 100 times for Spain, won the World Cup in 2010 and Euro 2012, and has also represented Catalonia on 12 occasions since 1998.
