Andres Iniesta has been talking about Barcelona and reckons the club should have won more Champions League titles given they had Lionel Messi to rely on and a squad packed full of talent

The GOAT has picked up the European Cup four times with the Catalan giants, although he has not tasted success in the continent’s top competition since 2015.

Iniesta thinks the club should have done better in the Champions League, particularly since he’s convinced it’s all but impossible for Messi to have an off night.

“I also feel that Barça are at their level because they’ve had Messi for so long. Four Champions Leagues have been won, but having the team we had and being able to count on Messi, surely we should have won it more.”

“In the end, when the results don’t come, this type of situation happens, looking for someone to blame. For me, it’s very difficult to say that Messi has played a bad game because that’s practically impossible.”

Iniesta also said that Messi “continues” to surprise him with his consistency for Barcelona and the “regularity with which he makes the difference.”
