FC Barcelona: Xavi pays vibrant tribute to Iniesta


By: Manu Tournoux

In the middle of two superb teams, Xavi and Iniesta marked the history of Spain and FC Barcelona. Brains of Iberian and Catalan supremacy, the two midfield friends won everything on the other side of the Pyrenees and are rightly considered among the best midfielders in the history of football.

But while Xavi, five years older than his junior, is currently Barça’s coach until the end of the season, Iniesta played his 1000th career match yesterday when he faced Ajman Club with the Emirates Club. A crazy accomplishment for the 39-year-old who was warmly greeted by his great friend: “Iniesta is the greatest talent I have ever seen in Spanish football. 1000 matches is a lot. I admire him and I love him very much, he is a great friend. One of the best players in the history of football.»
