Where is Abel Xavier now?

Renowned for his flamboyant and extravagant hairstyles as much as his footballing ability Abel Xavier retired from playing in 2009 after a spell in the US playing with David Beckham at LA Galaxy.

Upon retiring, Xavier converted to Islam and changed his name to Faisal Xavier.

After taking some time out of the game, Xavier made a return to football when he joined Portuguese side Olhanense in July 2013.

His time at the club was very brief and he left just three months into his tenure after mixed results on the field left his team in 11th place in the league.

He left the club at the end of the season in July 2015 when his team finished in 11th place in the league.

A two month spell at another second division side CD Aves from July to September 2015 preceded his current role as manager of the Mozambique national team.
