The Barcelona icon says the Argentine star could not have imagined playing for another club
Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta has said it would be “hurtful” to see Lionel Messi in another club’s jersey as he is confirmed to move to Paris Saint-Germain, Argentina.
Messi has signed a two-year deal to join the PSG, ending his record career as a Barcelona player after it was proven the club could not sign him again this summer.
Iniesta is one of the millions of Barca fans who have been heartbroken by Messi’s departure, as the legendary midfielder has said that the Argentine icon represents all the best about the club.
Not to be missed
“I do not know what happened locally, or how it happened, but the club must recover from this transfer,” Iniesta told AFP.
“It’s painful to see him with another team’s jersey. The lion reveals Barcelona. He’s all, he’s a player beyond the team. I have never seen a player like him, I think I will never see him again.
“[Barcelona] One of the best teams, will continue to be one of the best teams. “
The 2010 World Cup winner, currently playing in Whistleblower, Japan, left La Macia Academy and eventually wore the Bar பார்a jersey for more than 20 years to achieve glorious status.
During his time at the Spanish club, Iniesta won four Champions League titles and nine La Liga titles.
Messi shared each of these victories, both of which were an important part of a historical epic at the height of European football.
