The tributes have continued to flood in for Andres Iniesta after he confirmed on Friday that this would be his last season at Barcelona.

Former team-mate Neymar has been the latest to share his appreciation for the Spain international and says he fell in love with his football.

He said: “Maestro, an honour to be part of his career in Barcelona.”

“I already admired you from afar and after I came to be closer I fell in love with his football and more for the person that you are out of the field.

“I will always tell my friends, children and family that I had the pleasure of celebrating goals and titles at his side.

“Barcelona thanks you, I thank you and soccer lovers thank you for everything you did!!! Lots of luck on your walk always, hug CAPI Andres Iniesta.”
