Video: Victor Valdes Used to Call Andres Iniesta “Little Head” While at Barcelona

Andres Iniesta has admitted that his former teammate Victor Valdes, had a less-than polite nickname for him when the pair played together for Barcelona

20 years ago today, Iniesta made he debut for Barca’s La Masia and in celebration of reaching the milestone, he put his memory to the test this week on Barca’s official YouTube channel.

The 32-year-old was asked 20 gruelling questions, including which of his colleague’s used to call him “cabecita” – or “little head”.

The Spain international didn’t hesitate and pointed the finger squarely at Valdes, who is currently playing in the English Premier League for newly-promoted Middlesbrough.

Iniesta showed a wealth of football knowledge during the segment, remembering who he played alongside for Barca’s youth teams, when he made his debut for the senior side and who wore his famous number eight shirt before him:
