Andres Iniesta is set to face Barcelona on Saturday with Vissel Kobe and has been talking about the club’s big new summer signings.

Midfielder Frenkie de Jong has arrived from Ajax, while Antoine Griezmann has joined from Atletico Madrid and Iniesta reckons they are excellent additions.

“De Jong is an exceptional signing, an upward leap for the club, young, very talented and, if all goes well, will be a benchmark for the Barcelona midfield,” he said.

”I have said it before, Griezmann is an exceptional player, who knows La Liga and the team-mates he is going to have at Barça, so everything indicates that his career as a culé will be positive.”
