Iniesta Moved To Japan And Become A Golazo-Scoring Fiend

There is a saying that one cannot teach old dogs new tricks. There is also a saying that there is always an exception present that proves any a given rule. The switch of Andrés Iniesta to Japan and his transformed into Lionel Messi has seems relevant to above mentioned comments.

Iniesta is the former legend of Barcelona. He left the only club had known till this summer to join the team of Japanese Vissel Kobe, which is famous for having an attacking end. However, his performance on the ground has not been the same as his dribbles, movement and passes that have consistently been going on over the years. At the present time, Iniesta has probably curiously failed to make the number of goals that one might predict from a good and advanced midfielder who is playing for one of the most successful attacking team in history.


Former Barcelona midfield maestro made his first start in the J-League on Saturday, helping his side Vissel Kobe to victory. It could have been a more memorable first start from the World Cup and Champions League winner had his effort gone in. He had a good opportunity 15 minutes into the game. He was around the edge of the box but he couldn’t quite get his shot on target.

He had started the last game from the bench and could not do anything to stop the team from losing 3-0 to ShonanBellmare. Against Kashiwa this time, Iniesta showed his superior abilities despite being 34 already.

Erstwhile Real Madrid defender Michel Salgado eyes an “interesting” adventure in his breath-taking role as part-owner of Gibraltar United F.C. that play in the Gibraltar Football League’s Premier Division.

Why Barca were right to tie down Iniesta

Barcelona’s bubbling PR machine is currently in overdrive, and their latest effort to pull fans back on their side has been to hand Andres Iniesta a contract for life at the club.

Rather than an a PR move or empty gesture however, Barça must make good on their statement of intent regarding Iniesta. His legacy at the club must be cemented, by making sure that his image is intact for future generations coming through.

In the opinion of Enrique, he does not have any shortage of quality playmakers for tomorrow’s trip to Eibar. There are plenty of guys in the squad who can take people’s breath away with their skills in the centre of the pitch, but, none of them is whom he can call another Iniesta.
