Former Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta wants to host a farewell match in Albacete, reports Marca.
The 2010 world champion and double European champion (2008 and 2012) plans to say goodbye solemnly to football.
“Yes, I dream of a special farewell match”, the edition quotes the most successful Spanish player in history (37 titles). “It would be something special.” But other players would also like such a farewell.
I don’t know if it will work. The schedule is now very difficult for everyone, very tight. It is not easy to make several players available at the same time. And as a place, I would like to choose Albacete, where my debut took place. To close this circle, “said Andres, who plays for Japanese Wissel Kobe.
At the same time, Iniesta has made it clear that he has no plans to end his career in the near future. In addition, the former Barcelona captain expressed his confidence that the generation of students who accompanied him would no longer appear in the Catalan club.
“This generation will never happen again. But that doesn’t mean the following will be worse, given how the club works. I saw how Puyol left, how Victor Valdes left, then Xavi … We must focus on the current situation. You always have a high-level team, ”said the 35-year-old footballer.
“Now I want to extend my career as much as possible. I want to hit the ball as much as possible because it makes me happy. I have a contract until 2021, but I look at the situation at the end of each season. Now I feel fit, motivated. I want to continue playing and I’m happy to be here right now.
But when I finish my career, as I said, I want to go back to Barcelona, ”added the living legend.
