Iniesta says he would like this ‘to never end’ as Barcelona win La Liga

New, comments

It’s been a pretty emotional week for Andres Iniesta and he was left struggling for words again after Barcelona sealed the league title with a win at Deportivo.

Iniesta was in tears on Friday when he announced he would be leaving Barcelona at the end of the season, and he seemed pretty emotional again after Sunday’s win.

“It’s an indescribable feeling, on a personal level and as a sportsperson, there are no words when you receive so much love from people and even more so in difficult moments for them [as Deportivo were relegated],” he said.

“It’s an eternal thank you, because it’s very beautiful. This [move] isn’t a change of opinion, but I am making the most honest decision for myself and my club.

“To finish the season with these feelings before the World Cup and with another adventure ahead, I wish it were eternal. I would like this to never end, but everything has its beginning and its end.”

Iniesta didn’t start the match reportedly because of a minor injury issue but came on as a substitute and received a brilliant reception from both sets of fans.
