The former Barcelona player was about to attend match at Saint Denis, but his wife felt sick and they stayed at the hotel
The former FC Barcelona player Xavi Hernandez was ready to attend the France-Germany this Friday in Saint Denis. However, at the last minute, his wife, in an advanced state of pregnancy, felt sick, and they eventually stayed at the hotel. Remember that three terrorists tried to enter the stadium where they had to sacrifice themselves with explosives. They couldn't enter and this happened outside the stadium.
As explained by the newspaper Sport, the hotel where they stayed is located in down town Paris. It was from there where they heard gunfire attacks in the French capital, to the extent that the glass windows of his room slightly trembled. Finally, Xavi and his wife could leave Paris this Sunday afternoon with a direct flight to Doha.
