Andres Iniesta called a press conference this afternoon to confirm the news that we all knew was coming – he is going to leave Barcelona at the end of the season.
While Iniesta’s departure will signal the end of what’s been a truly remarkable relationship between one of the world’s biggest football clubs and one of it’s finest players, we’ll always have his highlights in the Blaugrana uniform to look back on.
And there’s plenty of them!
With social media currently awash with tributes to the Spain international, Barcelona have trumped them all with this offering, a timely reminder of just how brilliant Ilusionista has been over the past 21 years.
Along with navigating his way toward lifting eight Spanish titles, six Copa del Reys and four Champions Leagues… it looks like Iniesta fair knew his way around a football pitch too:
Iniesta could yet add to his impressive trophy haul this season, as Barcelona sit top of the La Liga table with an 11 point lead over closest challengers Atletico Madrid.
Not that he needs another medal to prove he’s one of the best ever!
